Bucks, fans team up to set Guinness records

It was a record-setting night at the Bradley Center.

The 15,014 fans that braved the latest Milwaukee snowstorm to attend the Bucks game will be a part of history, having established the Guinness World Record for the longest sustained "wave" of all time. The "wave" lasted 6 minutes and 26 seconds, establishing the mark for the first time.

The record came as part of an effort by the Bucks Game Presentation Department to set nine Guinness World Records.

In addition, fans also established the record for loudest indoor crowd, registering at 106.6 decibels.

The Bucks Rim-Rockers Dunk Team got in on the action, setting records for the Highest Forward Flip Trampoline Slam Duck at 11 feet, 6 inches (The previous mark of 10 feet, 9 inches was set by Jerry Burrell at the NBA All-Star Jam Session in New Orleans earlier this year); Most Slam Dunk Bounce Passes in 30 seconds, with 36 (previous mark: 21) and the Furthest Forward Flip Trampoline Slam Dunk at 20 feet, breaking the previous record of 19 feet, 2 inches.

Attempts to set records for the Longest Time to Spin a Basketball on One Finger Using One Hand, Most Basketball Forward Flip Slam Dunks, Most Reverse Half-Court Basketball Shots and the first-ever Double Front Flip Slam Dunk failed.

In addition to the records, fans were treated to a rare Bucks blowout. Milwaukee, with double-digit scoring efforts from eight players, trounced the visiting Los Angeles Clippers, 119-85, Saturday night, improving their record to 13-16 and extending their home-court winning streak to four games.

Trampoline Slam Duck? Were they trying to set a record for most ridiculous sounding Chinese dish too?
