Coming into this game, the Bucks are eyeing to bounce back from their recent-loss against the Cavaliers. Although they lost their last match, it is enough for them to retain their spot in the Eastern Conference. Both inside and outside the paint, the Bucks are capable to consistently score. In fact, when it comes to the tree-point line, they are shooting 35.3%, but just like other teams, they constantly struggle in that field as well. They only knocked down 73.9% from the charity line, the 3rd lowest in the NBA. If they continue on missing free throws, they cannot expect that they would win this game. They are the 17th offensively, with 112.9 points per game, but they are 4th in defense, surrendering 108.9 points per game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to dominate the scoring for the Bucks, scoring 31.6 points, and 11.2 rebounds per game. Guys like Jrue Holiday, and Brook Lopez are helping Antetokoinmpo, as the average 18.8 and 14.6 points per game.
