The Bucks snapped a three-game losing streak with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Milwaukee earlier this week. Now, they get ready to take on the Hornets in back-to-back games to close out the season series.
The two teams have each beat the other at home. Milwaukee hosts Charlotte on Friday night before this game the next night in Charlotte before the holidays.
The Bucks didn’t have Eric Bledsoe the first two times these two teams played. So far, the experiment has gone well enough. Milwaukee has a winning record with Bledsoe in there, better than their record without him.
This team is still such an enigma. From Jason Kidd as its Head Coach, to the mastery of Giannis to the second unit that can inherit a lead and give it up in the blink of an eye. There’s unmistakeable talent on the roster but it’s just not a machine well-oiled enough to make a steady run in the East. If the Bucks emerge a contender in the playoffs, it will be with a late surge rather than established dominance.
Better that than the Hornets’ situation, though. Charlotte has really disappointed this season.
The Hornets lost big to the Raptors the other day. Toronto pulled away early and never looked back.
Dwight Howard averaged 16.5 rebounds per game in the first two against Milwaukee this season, which lacks an interior presence to go along with all that perimeter talent. That is no secret.
So Dwight will have a mismatch all night long. The problem for Milwaukee is that it can’t really exploit it on the other end by spreading him out. None of the Bucks’ centers are outside shooters.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is questionable with a shoulder injury for Charlotte, at least ahead of Friday’s game. He did a good job on Giannis the last time these two teams played.
Lastly, Nic Batum will play for the first time against the Bucks. He missed the first two games early this season when he had yet to make his season debut.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction: the Hornets win in the final minute.
There’s pride at stake in a home and home. Assuming Milwaukee takes care of business at the Bradley Center, the Hornets will come out hot in this one. But it won’t earn them anything but a shot at the end. Kemba Walker drills one from 19 feet to give the Hornets the win at the horn.
