The second match of Christmas Day features Stephen Curry bringing his perimeter shooting to Milwaukee to face the reigning MVP Giannis Antetoounmpo and his Bucks. Both clubs lost their season opener and are seeking their first victory of the 2020-21 campaign.
Last season, the squads only played once due to the pandemic with the Bucks claiming victory in a 107-98 January 8th outcome. The Bucks hold the all-time record having won 83 matches of the 138 played.
Golden State Warriors
The game that launched the 2020-21 NBA season featured the Warriors matching up with former teammate Kevin Durant and his new team in Brooklyn.
Although the contest held intrigue based on the personnel without Draymond Green or the injured Klay Thompson the Nets depth was simply far too much to overcome as the Dubs succumbed 99-125.
Stephen Curry had a rough shooting night (7 of 21) from the field and perimeter (2 of 10) although he did lead his team in scoring with 20 points. Andrew Wiggins also shot poorly (4 of 16) but managed 13 points.
Rookie James Wiseman made a strong first impression with 19 points and six rebounds in his NBA debut and was the only other player to reach double-figures.
Curry could make history in this match if he drains a trio of 3-pointers as that would give him 2,500 triples in his career; a benchmark only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller have accomplished.
It’s likely Draymond Green (foot) won’t be available to go Friday and Alen Smailagic (knee) who didn’t play in the opener is also questionable.
As the back-to-back MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo ended the dreams of several teams by committing to the Bucks via a super-max extension that will keep him in Milwaukee for the next six seasons.
His first game of this season didn’t go quite as planned however as his 35 points, 13 rebounds, and two assists were overshadowed by a missed free throw that would’ve sent the match to overtime.
Newcomer Jrue Holiday had a solid debut for his new club with 25 points, six rebounds, and three assists.
Khris Middleton was also effective with 27 points, 14 rebounds, and eight assists. Donte DiVincenzo scored 15 as the only other double-digit scorer.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
The Bucks who have achieved the best overall record in consecutive seasons suffered one of their worst losses last year on Christmas Day.
Meanwhile, the Warriors’ 15 wins were the worst in the NBA last year, but they clobbered the Rockets on Christmas Day. That said, while Golden State has played in seven consecutive holiday games they’ve never won in consecutive years.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks win – but Warriors keep it close
While the Jrue Holiday addition was a definite upgrade for the Bucks the bench depth is suddenly a question mark.
Milwaukee should still take this match but the question is whether 10 points is a bit too much of a cushion to expect from them.
Ultimately, I’m not one to ignore trends and seven years of alternating wins and losses is too hard to ignore.
