Bucks probably have the best start of any team in the NBA this season, winning nine consecutive wins opening their campaign. However, after that, their performance slumped a little. Fortunately, they are now back on track, winning eight of their last 10 games, and are now eyeing their ninth in 11 games. They recently won their match against the Warriors, a huge win for them. They have been impressive in that game, going 55% from the floor, and a 41% shooting beyond the arc. They might have a luck on that match as they finally head home for that meeting. Offensively speaking, they are at the 16th in the league after averaging 112.6 points per game. As for their defense, they are at the 12th, as they allow 111.7 points per game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo consistently leads the Bucks with an average of 31.1 points per game, 11.3 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game. Jrue Holiday has been consistent for the Bucks as well, chipping in 19.1 points per game. However, on their last match, he did not play due to an illness, and is questionable for this match. Khris Middleton remains out for the Bucks.

The Grizzlies had a solid start this season, and in fact, they are still as solid coming into this match. They currently have a six-game winning streak, and are hoping to go for their seventh in this meeting. At the start of the season, they have a record of 9-4, but lost to four of their next five matches. Luckily for them, they managed to bounce back from that performance, winning eight of their last nine matches. They came from one of their best performance this season after dominating the Hawks, in a 128-103 win. This is without their star guard, Ja Morant, and starting center, Steven Adams. They are currently the 7th in offense, averaging 115.5 points per game. In defense, they are at 2nd, allowing 107.6 points per game.

It is still Ja Morant who leads the Grizzlies with an average of 27.7 points per game, and 6.6 rebounds. Bane, who is the second-leading scorer for the Grizzlies is sidelined in this match, so others need to step-up.
