Milwaukee is in the midst of a serious slump. As much fun as this group is to watch when things are clicking, it just can’t get it together right now.
Over the last 10 games, the Bucks are just 1-9. Their most recent outing was an ugly loss to the Utah Jazz, 104-108.
On the year, Milwaukee is putting up 104.4 points per contest. That number is only good enough for 17th in the NBA.
Defensively, this group is giving up 104.6 points per night. That number puts them at 11th in the league.
Against Denver, the key is going to be keeping up with the pace. Denver tries to run teams out of the gym, and that won’t change in this one.
On the year, the Nuggets run the fifth-fastest pace in the Association. Milwaukee is No. 21 on that list.
The Nuggets have lost their last two games, with their most recent outing being a blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, 119-99.
That said, they’re a far cry away from where the Bucks are at in terms of losing momentum on the season, as they had won four of their previous five ahead of the recent skid, and seven of their last eight when looking back a few more games.
On the year, Denver is averaging 110.2 points per contest. That number is impressive enough to put the team at third in the NBA in that category.
Defensively, this group gives up an atrocious 111.5 points per night.
That number is only good enough for 28th in a league of 30 teams.
