The Bucks have gone 5-5 over those 10 games, with four straight victories lifting them to third in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks have seen a significant decline in their performance over that span, with their point differential falling from nearly 10 per game to 2.5 points.

Holiday, 30, is averaging 16.4 points, 5.4 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game after the Bucks landed him in exchange for multiple players, three first-round picks and two additional pick swaps as the centerpiece in a blockbuster four-team trade.
