The Milwaukee Bucks are playing good since the firing of head coach Jason Kidd. Milwaukee has won four in a row, and most recently handled the Philadelphia 76ers, 107-95. The Timberwolves are playing like top five NBA team in the West this year, but have dropped four straight road games. Minnesota recently took a loss to Toronto on the road.
The last time the Bucks and Timberwolves took the court against each other, was December 20th this season. The Bucks got the win, 102-96. Look for another close matchup tonight in Minnesota.
Milwaukee is going through a post Jason Kidd phase. The team has won four in a row since his firing. Milwaukee recently beat the 76ers by 12 points at home. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team in scoring with 31 points on 10 of 22 shooting from the floor.
Aside from the play of Antetokounmpo, the Bucks are getting back former lottery pick Jabari Parker. Parker is returning from his secon ACL injury on the same knee. If Parker can give the Bucks solid minutes, and gradually return to 75 percent of his former self, the Bucks will be a for sure playoff team.
Parker was averaging 20.1 points per game last year. He only played in 51 games, but was playing at an All Star level before the injury. Parker might not make his first appearance of the season until Friday. Look for Eric Bledose, Kris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo to mesh well when Jabari returns.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Bucks are an underachieving unit. Milwaukee is the longest team in the NBA. The Bucks are allowing 105.3 points per game this season. Good enough for 11th in points allowed this season. Hopefully Parker can help improve the defense to a top 10 level by seasons end.
Jabari Parker is not going to be playing in this game. Look for the Bucks to be tested on the road. They are 10-13 as the visiting team this year.
The Minnesota Timberwolves were playing great basketball, but have seemed to take a dive the last five games. Minnesota is 1-4 over their last five games, and have lost two in a row. Dropping games at Atlanta (inexcusable) and at Toronto, on road back to backs. Minnesota might be a bit fatigued right now, but must play better.
Minnesota took a loss the first time they faced the Bucks, losing on the road by six points. The Timberwolves shot 47.9 percent from the floor and 32.2 percent from three point range, in the loss. Minnesota lead by an much as 20 points, but allowed a late rally in the fourth quarter. Minnesota was outscored 27-12 which led to the loss.
On the defensive side of the court, the Timberwolves are allowing 106.0 points per game. Ranking Minnesota 17th in points allowed this year. That’s down a few spots from last week. The Timberwolves are going to forget how the Bucks came back in the last matchup.
