While it’s not very probably for the Bucks to find themselves back into the playoff push, this team isn’t too far off thanks to a weak Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee will get a very fatigued Lakers team when these two teams meet on Monday night.
The Lakers fell in Chicago on Sunday, despite putting up 115 points in the contest.
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles turned in one of their best offensive performances of the season on Sunday night, but their defense once again let them down in a 126-115 defeat to the Bulls.
On the season, the Lakers have averaged just 97.1 points per game, but really hit their stride on Sunday.
Four of the Lakers starters finished with 15 points or more and 2 bench players contributed with double figures. Kobe Bryant and Julius Randle showed off the solid veteran-youth duo as they both turned in 22 points.
Randle added 12 rebounds as he continues to show flashes of brightness this season.
The bench saw Brandon Bass and Lou Williams both turn in double figures, but that was all the production the Lakers bench gave.
Jordan Clarkson did a little bit of everything as he continues to show why he is part of this future core as he turned in 20 points, 4 assists, and 9 rebounds.
Milwaukee had plenty of calls coming their way prior to the deadline, but they decided to keep their foundation and attempt to make one push at the 8 seed.
Milwaukee currently sits in 13th place, 6.5 games off the Bulls for 8th place. The Bucks have had some recent success as it’s potentially fueled an ignitor.
Milwaukee has won 3 of 4 with wins coming against Boston, Washington, and at Atlanta.
The Bucks will close out the month of February with 3 of 4 games at home, a place where they have played pretty well this season.
Milwaukee has gone 15-9 SU at home this season and has gone 13-10-1 ATS in that span. They’ve played just 3 home games this month, as they dropped their most previous one to Charlotte 98-95.
They’ll endure 2 tough home games to cap the month off with Detroit and Houston coming to town. With that, along with a road game in Boston, this one against the lowly Lakers means a lot more to them.

- Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games.
- Lakers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Milwaukee has had some solid success recently and this game against Los Angeles is extremely vital.
Not only are they going to have to win pretty much every game like this one in the 2nd half, they’ll have to pull off some surprises if they hope to push toward that 8 seed.
With that in mind, expect Milwaukee to really take advantage of the Lakers fatigue here in this back to back as they roll at home.
