Sunday, February 6th, 2022 finds the Milwaukee Bucks facing the LA Clippers for the first of two meetings this season. The Bucks will host the second meeting on April 1st.
The Bucks enter having played the front side of a back-to-back set defeating the Blazers 137-108 on Saturday while the Clippers last played Thursday defeating the Lakers in a close 111-110 battle.
Last season, the teams played twice with each team winning on their home court. The Bucks hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 68 of their 121 matches.
With the victory on Saturday, the Bucks regained positioning in the East moving back up to sole possession of third, a game behind the Bulls and Heat for the top rung.
Knowing the harder match would come on Sunday, Coach Budenholzer played all 15 members of his roster and limited his starters to 25 minutes (except Jrue Holiday – 27).
Despite the shortened run Giannis Antetokounmpo registered 29 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and a block while Bobby Portis scored 30 points. Khris Middleton and Donte DiVincenzo offered 14 and 10 points as the only other Bucks to register double-digits.
George Hill (neck) is doubtful to play Saturday versus the Blazers while Lopez (back) is out indefinitely.
With the trade deadline looming on February 10th, the Clippers got an early jump start via a trade with the Blazers. Coming to LA are Norman Powell and Robert Covington. Eric Bledsoe, Justise Winslow, Keon Johnson as well as a 2025 second-round draft pick go to Portland.
At first glance, the trade is a bit odd given Bledsoe is yet another smallish guard when the Blazers already have Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Portland said they made the moves to fall under the luxury tax and it’s expected more moves are coming.
As for the Clippers, Powell offers them scoring and defense while Covington is considered a solid defender although his prowess in that area has slipped in recent seasons.
Presumably, the Clippers aren’t done either because what they need more than anything is playmaking which neither player offers.
Powell is from LA and won the championship in Toronto with Kawhi Leonard and Serge Ibaka so should feel right at home.
Ivica Zubac (calf) is questionable while Jay Scrubb (toe) was downgraded to out Sunday. Jason Preston (foot), Paul George (elbow), and Kawhi Leonard (knee) are out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Clippers are 5-4-1 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
- The Bucks are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.
- The Clippers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 6 of Milwaukee’s last 9 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Clippers’ last 7 games.
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. LA Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Clippers may have their new members on the court Sunday which could prove to be a factor. Without them, head coach Ty Lue would have a severely shortened bench but it’s likely they’ve had time to process Powell and Covington.
Although the moves made by LA are seemingly more about positioning for next season, don’t count them out of this year as they enter this game only two games back of that secure sixth seed.
If they are successful watch how quickly Leonard and George updates start coming.That said, this is one of the games Giannis won’t be taking lightly so I like the Bucks to win while the Clippers keep it close.
