Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets
The Bucks have Antetokunmpo and Middleton int heir injury list but it seems almost certain that Anteto will dress up for this one while Middleton (game-time decision) might be protected.
If Middleton misses this one then Bledsoe will have a bigger role offensively and take many extra attempts. Either way, Bledsoe has an easy matchup against a weak defender, D'Angelo, who is also on the second game of a back to back set and was harassed by Kemba yesterday. Bledsoe took less than 8 attempts in each his last two games (both games against the Knicks) which is well below his average (12 per game) and rare for him, so this time he is expected to get his fair share of attempts while at the same time it's very possible that he will be asked to drive to the basket more often and take advantage of that weakness of the Nets .
Bledsoe has multiple 20+ point games against D'Angelo even back when they were both playing in the West and he has another chance to boost his numbers today while if Middleton won't make there won't be any doubt that Bledsoe will cover.
