The Brooklyn Nets look for their 10th consecutive win at Barclays Center Monday when they host the red-hot Milwaukee Bucks, holders of the NBA’s best record.

The Brooklyn Nets open up a three-game homestand with the first of two extremely difficult opponents coming to Barclays Center when they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

The Nets (28-26) have won nine straight games at home and 13 of their last 14 in Brooklyn, but the Bucks (38-13) come in with three straight wins — all on the road — and victories in nine of their last 10 games. They own the NBA’s best record by 1½ games.

At Washington on Saturday. Giannis Antetokounmpo went off for 37 points and 10 rebounds, Brook Lopez added 21 points and two blocks and Khris Middleton dropped in 20 points with six assists as the Bucks won without starting point guard Eric Bledsoe, out with a sore Achilles.

George Hill added 13 points and four steals for Milwaukee.

The Nets are 72-99 all-time against the Bucks since joining the NBA in 1976. Milwaukee’s 13-game winning streak from March 30, 2009, to Dec. 26, 2012, is the longest of the series. The Nets won eight in a row from Dec. 5, 1991, to March 19, 1993.
