Saturday, November 16th finds two Central Division rivals matching up as the Milwaukee Bucks face the Indiana Pacers.
Last season, the squads played four times with Milwaukee winning three of the four contests. The Bucks hold the all-time record having bested the :Pacers in 101 of their 191 matches
Like many of the top teams, the Bucks are dealing with the loss of a core player to the lineup. For Milwaukee, that person is Khris Middleton who suffered a right thigh contusion and will miss up to a month of action.
In spite of missing their secondary scoring option, the Bucks haven’t skipped a beat. Or course, that is an easier prospect when you have the reigning Most Valuable Player on your team. Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t just playing well he’s putting up better numbers than he did in his MVP campaign.
He leads the Bucks in scoring (30.5), rebounding (14.5), assists (6.5), steals (1.5) and field goal percentage (58.0%). In the win over the Bulls, Antetokounmpo led the way again with a double-double of 38 points and 16 rebounds.
Eric Bledsoe stepped up in Middleton’s absence to produce one of his best games with 31 points, eight assists, and four rebounds. Wesley Matthews added 15 points and Brook Lopez chipped in with 13 points.
Middleton is the only player out for the Bucks.
After a rough start to the season where the Pacers lost three games in a row they compiled seven wins in their next eight outings.
Missing core players like Myles Turner and Jeremy Lamb made the process more difficult but the squad can be buoyed by the fact their star Victor Oladipo should be back in December.
The Pacers are playing a back-to-back set this weekend with the Rockets up first on Friday and this match versus the Bucks.
In their last outing versus the Thunder, the Pacers won every quarter and were led by players added this summer. Malcolm Brogdon (20) and TJ Warren (23 led the way while the double-double of Domantas Sabonis (18 points/16 rebounds) and Aaron Holiday’s 17 points factored.
Rookie Goga Bitadze missed the last three games in the concussion protocol program but is expected back this weekend including the game on Friday versus the Rockets.
Jeremy Lamb missed four games with a badly sprained ankle and isn’t expected back this weekend. Myles Turner is also nursing a grade one ankle sprain with will keep him out of the lineup.
Edmund Sumner suffered a non-displaced fracture of the third metacarpal of his right hand keeping him out of the lineup. Victor Oladipo continues his reb for the ruptured quadriceps tendon and is expected back in early December.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
Milwaukee is the top rebounding team which will be essential for the Bucks to get out in transition. Given the teams are both in the Central Division this match takes on an extra motivation.
While the Pacers have been hot their schedule has been relatively easy so a statement win versus a top team will be their goal. Unfortunately, they’ll be playing on a back-to-back set while the Bucks will be rested and waiting.
