Milwaukee Bucks renew win streak

The Milwaukee Bucks is looking to restart their winning streak as they meet with the Orlando Magic. The Bucks failed to extend their winning streak, after experiencing a loss against the 76ers. Luckily, they are able to bounce back against the Wizards on their last match, as they aim to once again have a winning streak. As for the Magic, they are not in a good form coming into this game. In fact, they lost to two of their last three outings in the league. They are coming from a 122-119 loss against the Trail Blazers on their last match. Moreover, the Magic will be hosting this match on March 8, 2023, at 8:00 AM (GMT+8).

When it comes to the standings, these two teams are far from each other. These two teams are in the Eastern Conference, and it was the visitors who are doing really well. The hosts are in a dangerous place in the standings, as they are at the 13th spot, three place below from the teams qualified for the playoffs. They have 27 wins from their 65 games, where just 15 of them are coming at home. On the other hand, the visitors are doing extremely well recently, staying at the top of the standings. Although they ended their 16-game winning streak, they remained to be on top of the standings. They earned 46 wins this season, where 19 of those are coming on the road.

It is unfortunate that the Bucks were not able to extend their winning streak, snapping their winning streak against the 76ers. It was unfortunate that they lost in this match, as they already have the advantage on that match. They blew an 18-point lead in that match, which cost them their loss. However, they are lucky that they are able to go back to winning ways, winning against the Wizards. As expected, it was Antetokounmpo who led the Bucks by having a triple double performance. In the three-point territory, they managed to successfully make 22 of their 49 attempts. This squad is 11th in offense, shooting 115.6 points per game, while fifth in defense allowing 111.5 points per game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to lead the Bucks with 31.2 points per game, but is listed as probable in this game. Jrue Holiday, who is the second point leader for the Bucks, who is chipping in 19.9 points per game is also a doubt in this match. Moreover, Goran Dragic, and Wesley Matthews are still unavailable due to their injuries.

Although the Magic are playing competitive basketball recently, their slow start in the league affected their standings. During their first 25 games in the league this season, they already lost to 20. However, they bounced back by winning eight of their next nine games, showing competitiveness. In fact, they have gone more than a month without consecutive losses. This is the record they hope to retain as they are coming from a loss against the Trail Blazers on their last match. They were not able to stop Damian Lillard, who scored 41 points on that match. They can get confidence from the performance of their starters on that match. All of their starters scored over 15 points on that match. In offense, they are at the 27th with 111 points per game, and 17th in defense giving up 113.7 points per game.

Paolo Banchero continues to lead the Magic with 20 points across his name. Franz Wagner on the other hand is also providing for the magic with 18.8 points per game. However, Gary Harris, and Wendell Carter Jr. are listed as questionable for this match. Additionally, Admiral Schuofield, and Jonathan Isaac are both unavailable, following their health issues.
