Of course, the Bucks have seen that a gaudy regular-season record is no guarantee of playoff success. Last season, the team finished a league-best 60-22 but was upset by the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference finals.

"What we're chasing is we want to be an NBA champion," Horst added. "We want to be better than we were last year. Last year, we fell short of The Finals. This year we want to get to The Finals.

"We want to get there healthy. We want to be playing well. As I think you would tell anyone, that if you're healthy, if you're good enough and you catch enough breaks along the way you can win it. And that's where we want to be positioned to hope to be able to do."
