The pressure is on this year for the Milwaukee Bucks, as Mike Budenholzer remains on the hot seat with another playoff failure likely leading to him being relieved of his duties as Bucks head coach.
The Milwaukee Bucks are still fighting for seeding in those playoffs, so I expect we see the Bucks running at 100% to make sure they can pick up this win, especially with that game against the Spurs still in the back of their head from a few days ago.
The Bucks are 6 and 1 in their last 7 games so the alarm bells are not exactly ringing in the state of Wisconsin, but the way they have gone about their business over the last couple games has not looked all that great.
They had that blowout loss against the Spurs two back, and their last game was a victory over the Orlando Magic who have essentially packed it in for the year and Orlando really hung around in that one, as Giannis really needed to turn it on late in order for the Bucks to come away with that win.
The biggest issue for the Bucks in that last game was clearly shooting efficiency, as they were only able to hit 24.2% of their shots from beyond the arc and if they can’t get the 3 ball to drop we are going to see them eliminated from playoff contention pretty quickly once the postseason starts.
The strength of this team is clearly on the interior, as they rank number 1 in rebounding and a lot of that obviously has to do with the Greek-Freak who has put up exactly 11 rebounds per game here in 2021.
The Pacers have been on a nice roll as of late winning 3 of their last 4 games and their only loss came against a very game Wizards team who only beat them by 1 point, so this team has remained extremely competitive and now look primed for a spot in the play-in games.
Their last game was a 9 point win over the depleted 76ers, but you can only ask the team to beat what is in front of them and they did it in style pulling away from Philadelphia in the 4th quarter.
A big issue for the Pacers as of late has been the play of their bench, as they have not been able to support the starters properly with guys like Goga Bitadze being especially disappointing not having the impact the coaching staff would have liked.
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Milwaukee Bucks look like they are in a nice spot here, as the Pacers have not been very impressive in their recent wins, and this represents a ”get right” spot for the Bucks who will look to build some momentum going into the postseason.
I also do not see the Bucks continuing to shoot this bad, as everyone on the opposing team is always fixated on Giannis and it opens up some real clean looks for a lot of these perimeter guys and it just feels like a matter of time before the ball starts falling.
