Brooklyn Nets wounded vs Bucks

Brooklyn Nets wounded vs Bucks

The Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks meet each other with hopes of extending their winning streak in the league. However, it seems like the Nets are not at their best, given the number of their injured players. These two teams have their respective winning run, with Nets having three, and the Bucks with two. This meeting will be the fourth time that these two teams will meet this season. Looking at these two teams, it seems like this is already a playoff preview, as these two teams are playing well in the regular season. Nets are from a 118-96 win against the Rockets, while the Bucks are from a 134-123 win against the Magic. This match will be on March 10, 2023, at 9:00 AM (GMT+8), with the Bucks as hosts.

These two teams are both from the Eastern Conference, but the hosts are far ahead from the visitors. When it comes to their current format, both teams are actually doing well, so it is really hard to put an expectation in this match. The host continues to be one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, being atop of their standings. From their 65 games, they were able to win 47, where 27 of which are won at home. As for the visitors, they are at the sixth of the standings, in the middle of their standings. From their 65 games, they were able to win 37, where 18 of those are won on the road.

The Nets are looking to get things done on the road, where they are having a good run, they are aiming for the same result in this match. Furthermore, this match will be their sixth match on the road from their last 10 games. They are actually fortunate to go back on track, as they had struggles ending February with wins. Additionally, they closed the previous month with a four-game losing streak. Moreover, they will come in this game from a blowout 118-96 win against the Rockets. This win is this squad’s third double-digit win in a row, and have been phenomenal in their recent matches. When it comes to offense, this squad is in the 18th with 113.6 points per game. On the other hand, they are at the 11th in defense as they are allowing 112.6 points per game.

Ever since the departure of Irving and Durant, it is now Nic Claxton who is leading the Nets with just 12.3 points per game. However, Claxton will be out in this game due to his issues in his thumb, and his left Achilles. Aside from him, Dinwiddie, Simmons, O’Neale, and Johnson are also unavailable in this game.

This squad is doing well at home, which is not surprising, considering their place in the standings. The Bucks is not only the best in the Eastern Conference, but are one of the best in the NBA right now. It is just unfortunate that they snapped their 16-game winning streak, as it could widen their gap with the other teams. They are now back in the winning track, winning their last two matches. However, they are no better with their opponents in this match as they are also playing with number of injuries. During their match against the Magic, they were able to finish the first quarter with a 10-point lead. Throughout their game, they were able to held on to that lead, which eventually gave them the victory in that match. Offensively, this team is at the ninth with 115.8 points per game. Moreover, they are doing well in defense, the fifth in the league as they give up just 111.7 points per game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the one leading the Bucks with 31.2 points per game, but it is unfortunate that he is listed as a doubt here. Just like him, Jrue Holiday, and Jae Crowder are also a doubt for this match. Wesley Matthews, and Goran Dragic on the other hand are both unavailable due to their injuries.
