Milwaukee has cooled off a bit since it won seven of the first eight games following Jason Kidd’s firing. The Bucks have gone .500 in their last six games with losses at Miami, vs. Denver and the Pelicans.
Still, Milwaukee is just two back in the division (although it trails both Indiana and Cleveland) and in position to take advantage of a continued run of home games. The Bucks trail the Pacers by half a game for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference, which should keep them out of a potential first round matchup against the Raptors, Celtics or Cavaliers.
The Greek Freak is still putting up ridiculous numbers this deep into the season: nearly 28 points per game, over 10 rebounds and 5 assists. He also averages 1.4 steals and 1.3 blocks per game.
But the wear and tear on his knees is for real. Not only do the Bucks have to play it cautiously with the body of the man who is so valuable to the organization, so does Giannis himself. He’s admitted to working too hard in the gym but he has to act on it whenever it does become the off-season.
Detroit’s little surge of five wins in a row came right after the Blake Griffin trade, and a little longer after Milwaukee’s prolonged hot streak.
It’s safe to say the Pistons have come back down to Earth, too. Detroit has lost three in a row and six of seven. It’s only win in the last seven games came against Atlanta, which it only beat by six points at home.
For all of the front court talent the Pistons have, I’m not sure there’s a guy on the roster who really matches up with the Greek Freak. Blake Griffin might give it a shot but he’s not a strong on-ball defender. Stanley Johnson will give up some size, which is usually the way to go when it comes to trying to stop #34.
John Henson will bang with Drummond down low and won’t stop him completely but will keep him occupied. It feels like Milwaukee will be able to spread Detroit out and get some easy buckets.
