Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers (By: Miyagi)
The Bucks are having some trouble with injuries this month. The first victim was Brogdon and they lost their latest additions, Mirotic and Gasol who are expected to be out for at least a couple of weeks, while Antetokunmpo (doubtful) is still struggling with a sprained knee but he is expected to go through warmups today and its probably up to him though considering his own 'battle' with Harden, who is now leading the race for the MVP award after his latest performances, Anteto has some extra motivation to be back in action.
Things have been tough for the banged-up Bucks recently as they have lost 2 of their last 4 games with one of those against the Cavs, four days ago, on the road (107-102).
The Cavs on the other side has been great in their last 3 games, with wins over the Pistons (126-119) and the Bucks (107-102) at home and a narrow loss to the Clippers (108-110). They rank 6th in the league in offensive efficiency in those last 3 games with Sexton (scored at least 20p in each of those 3 games), Clarkson (back to back 20p games) and Love being in great shape.
The Bucks seek revenge for that surprising loss to the Cavs a few days ago but it won't be easy as they are shorthanded and the Cavs are rolling offensively. All three meetings between those teams this season had low scores (108-92, 114-102, 107-102) but things should be different this time. The Cavs still rank dead last in defensive efficiency on away games and they have allowed at least 120p in their last two away games, to teams that have struggled with their offenses all season long (Mavericks, Magic). Hopefully, Antetokunmpo will return to action today, either way, the Bucks have the momentum after that massive win over the Heat and they can go big again on that poor Cavs' defense.
