Thursday night NBA features a contest between one team looking to get back above .500 after a rough patch and another team that just got a crucial win after seven straight losses.
The Milwaukee Bucks visit the Brooklyn Nets for a 7:30 p.m. ET tip.
The Bucks started this season winning four out of their first six contests. Nobody was going to deem them true contenders after a 4-2 start, but it was a solid beginning to a season that had a lot of potential despite the absence of Khris Middleton.
Following that hot start, things took a turn in the wrong direction. Milwaukee dropped six out of its next eight, only picking up victories against the Memphis Grizzlies and the lowly Orlando Magic.
Entering this contest, the Bucks are looking more like themselves. They’ve taken down three of their last opponents, with their only loss coming against a Toronto Raptors squad that is hoping to compete for a No. 2 seed by the time the playoffs are nearing.
Their most recent victory came Tuesday night against the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
Against Brooklyn, Milwaukee will have something of an unexpected challenge in slowing down Sean Kilpatrick. The point guard has done a solid job replacing Jeremy Lin while he’s sidelined.
Tuesday night was his apparent breakout performance, as he scored 20 points in the fourth quarter alone and led the Nets to a double-overtime victory over the Los Angeles Clippers with a career-high 38 points.
The Nets as a whole aren’t going to kill you, but letting a relative unknown go off the way the Clippers did is a recipe for disaster.
The Brooklyn Nets are not on a roll. They are, however, hoping that their big win over the Clippers gives them some momentum against the Bucks.
After all, they don’t own their first-round pick this season, so there’s no incentive whatsoever to tank at this point in the process.
Entering this game, Brooklyn has the big win over the Clips to add confidence, but it’s been a rough ride as of late. After starting the season at 4-5 (a surprisingly positive result considering pre-season projections), the Nets dropped seven straight before Tuesday’s victory.
This group can’t rely on Kilpatrick to score a new career high every night, meaning guys like Brook Lopez, Bojan Bogdanovic and the rest of this roster that most casual fans won’t recognize needs to step up on a nightly basis.
