Milwaukee Bucks to stay the hottest

Milwaukee Bucks is looking to continue their long winning streak, as they meet the Brooklyn Nets who is not doing well recently. While the Bucks continue to look hot in their games, the Nets are in a losing run, losing four of their last five games. The Bucks is currently on their fourth-longest streak in their team history. On the other hand, the Nets were not able to make a comeback on their last match. They were able to erase a huge deficit, but they still fell short in that match. The meeting between these two teams will be on March 1, 2023, at 8:30 AM (GMT+8), as the Nets play as host.

When it comes to the standings, these two teams are in the Eastern Conference, but are five places apart. The visitors are at the top of the Eastern Conference, which is actually not surprising. From their 60 matches, they were able to record 43 wins, and 17 losses. Additionally, in their away matches, they have a narrow advantage, winning 17 away games from their 29. Moreover, the hosts are at the sixth of the standings, winning 34 of their 60 matches. Additionally, when it comes to home games, they are doing well, knowing how to take care of their advantage. They won 18 of their 29 home games, which is a good sign, as they will play at home.

Considering the Bucks’ hot start this season, it is no longer surprising that they are leading in the Eastern Conference right now. In fact, they are now on a 14-game winning streak, which is their key to their current standing. However, this squad might face a problem going against the Nets as their number one player is facing injuries. On their last two games, he had a wrist injury, and tweaked his knee, which puts him in doubt. As they are in a long winning streak right now, they already matched the 1972-73 team. This squad is at the 14th in offense as they are scoring 114.9 points per game. On the other hand, their defense is at the fourth in the league, as they ae giving up just 111.2 points per game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to lead the Bucks with 31.3 points per game, however, he is listed as a doubt for this match. If he will be unavailable, the Bucks will have to rely on Jrue Holiday, who is scoring 19.8 points per game.

It seems like the departure of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving is a huge blow for the Nets, as they are currently not doing well. They already lost to four of their last five games, which is not a good sign if they aim for a twice-to-beat advantage. On their last match, they are able to close their deficit against the Hawks, but are still not able to win. They can gain confidence from the fact that they have the longest winning streak prior to the Bucks. Additionally, they are a complete different team facing the Bucks as they are without Durant and Irving. Despite the departure of their two main guys, they still improved from their previous matches. Right now, the Nets are the 18th in offense with 113.8 points per game. Meanwhile, they are at the 14th in defense, allowing 112.9 points per game.

Nic Claxton now leads the Nets with just 12.6 points per game, but Johnson is giving numbers as well. However, Ben Simmons, remains to be unavailable due to his injury.
