Friday, December 13th finds the Milwaukee Bucks hitting the West coast to play the Memphis Grizzlies. This is the first game between the clubs this season. Both teams arrive off wins with the Bucks defeating the Pelicans without Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup by a score of 127-112. The Grizzlies shocked the Phoenix Suns stealing a win as the road team 115-108.
Last season, the squads played twice with the teams splitting the series. The Bucks hold the all-time record having bested the Grizzlies in 23 of their 45 matches.
Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn’t use load management and often has to be told by his coaches to settle down a bit – such is the passion with which he plays the game. A sore quad kept him out versus the Pelican, and hey, with 21 wins entering the match the team could afford to give the Greek Freak some time for his quad to heal.
His teammates stepped up however and netted the victory to keep the Bucks unbeaten streak rolling at 16 in a row. Four Bucks registered double-figure efforts with Eric Bledsoe leading the way scoring 29 points.
Khris Middleton dropped 24, Ersan Ilyasova scored 18 and reserve George Hill chipped in with 13 points.
On the season Giannis Antetokounmpo leads three team categories for the Bucks including scoring (30.9), rebounding and (13.2), and field goal percentage (56.4%). The other categories are led by Eric Bledsoe (assists: 5.7), Donte DiVincenzo (steals 1.5) and Brook Lopez (blocks: 2.3).
Antetokounmpo sat out the game versus New Orleans nursing soreness in his right quadriceps and is listed as questionable for the match Friday in Memphis.
Dragan Bender is dealing with a right ankle sprain which kept him out the past two games making him questionable for Friday.
The return of rookie Ja Morant to the lineup after missing four games due to a sore back has resulted in back to back wins for Memphis.
What makes this lottery team so intriguing is they perform so well away from home and both the above games were won on the road versus the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns.
In the win, Dillon Brooks led the scoring with 27 points. Jaren Jackson Jr. had a complete game effort with 24 points, six rebounds, and four assists. Brandon Clarke chipped in with 15 while both Jae Crowder and Ja Morant scored 13 points.
On the season, the young core dominates the team leaderboard with Jaren Jackson Jr. topping scoring (16.5 points) and blocks (1.2), Ja Morant tops in assists (6.4), Brandon Clarke in field goal percent (63.8) and Dillon Brooks for steals (1.4). The only vet in the mix is Jonas Valanciunas, who is the lead rebounder with 9.8 boards per game.
Grayson Allen missed the game versus the Suns dealing with right ankle soreness and is questionable for this Friday match. Andre Iguodala remains away from the team as the franchise shops for potential trade partners.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
Although the Grizzlies have pulled off some big victories this season against higher ranked clubs (Jazz and Wolves twice) the Bucks won’t take this team for granted given how focused Antetokounmpo is.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS (odds updated 4AM EST)
The odds are off as of this posting (check back later) but with or without Antetokounmpo the Bucks should win by double digits. The score reflects no Giannis in the lineup (add 10 points to the Bucks total if he is cleared to play).
