This match-up will see the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Milwaukee Bucks. This is a game between two teams on opposite ends of the spectrum.
These teams have already met twice this season and the Bucks have won both games.
The Cavaliers have been horrible to start this season and are still four wins away from double-figures. They finally snapped their eight-game losing streak in their last game when they beat San Antonio 117-109. This game also went to overtime.
The Cavs offense is near the bottom of the NBA, averaging 103.2 points per game. This ranks 28th in the league. They also shoot the ball at 43.5% form the field, ranking 26th in the league. From the three-point line, they shoot 33.4%, also ranking 26th.
Their leading scorer is Colin Sexton and he is one of the lone bright spots for this team. He is averaging 17.8 points per game. Right behind Sexton is Kevin Love. He averages 16.4 points per game and 10.8 rebounds per game.
The defense for the Cavs is also among the worst in the league. They allow an average of 113 points per game, which ranks 20th in the NBA. Somehow teams shoot 49.2% against them from the field, which is second to last. From the three-point line, their opponents shoot 38.1%, which ranks 27th.
The Cavs are going to be in a tough spot here and they are going to have to hope that Giannis cannot play. Really this game could be a blowout either way, especially if the Cavs continue to play poor defense.
The Bucks are tied for the best record in the NBA and have the best record in the Eastern Conference by far. They come into this game having won 17 games in a row and are just playing unbelievably well. They are coming into this game on the second night of a back to back.
It all starts with the Bucks offense, which is the best in the NBA. They are averaging 120.8 points per game. They are shooting 48.4% from the field, which is the second highest shooting percentage in the NBA. As for their three-point shooting, they are shooting 36.1%, which ranks 16th.
It is well known that Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leader for the Bucks. He is averaging a double-double, with 30.9 points per game and 13.2 rebounds per game. Giannis did not even play in the last game and the Bucks still managed to score 127 points. Thus showing how deep their team really is.
As shown by their performance against the Pelicans the other night, the Bucks have plenty of other talent around Giannis. Khris Middleton is averaging 17.9 points per game and Eric Bledsoe is averaging 15.2 points per game. Bledsoe most recently scored 29 against the Pelicans and Middleton scored 24 to carry the Bucks to an easy win.
Defensively, the Bucks are also very solid. They allow 107.4 points per game, the 11th best scoring defense in the NBA.
Teams are only shooting 41.3% from the field against them, which ranks 1st in the NBA.
The key for the Bucks is to limit the Cavaliers three-point shooting. They allow teams to shoot 36.5% from deep range, the 19th best in the league.

It remains to be seen if Giannis is going to suit up for this game. Even if he does not play, the Bucks are going to run up this score and therefore, I like the over to be the play.
