Saturday, January 19th brings you an NBA Eastern Conference showdown as the Milwaukee Bucks travel down south to Florida to take on the Orlando Magic live from the Amway Center.
The Bucks are coming off a 111-101 win over Memphis on Wednesday, while the Magic fell to Detroit in overtime 120-115. That game was also on Wednesday. Milwaukee has won the last two meetings between these two teams with the most recent being a 113-91 win back on October 27th.
The Bucks come into this game red hot as they have won five out of their last six games and are still in a neck and neck battle with the Toronto Raptors for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. With a 12-8 record on the road this year, added with the fact that they are playing an Orlando team that has had an up and down season, a win here on Saturday is a probability.
Milwaukee has averaged 118 points per game over their last five games, which is slightly higher than their overall season average of 117.61 points per game. They have allowed an average of 104.6 points per game over that same span of five games, which is far better than their overall season average of 107.61 points against per game. Their average margin of victory over that same five game stretch is 18 points per game.
PF Giannis Antetokounmpo had a game high 27 points in the Bucks win over Memphis to go with his game high 11 rebounds in 22 minutes of action. SF Khris Middleton had a team high 6 assists to go along with his 11 points in 27 minutes. PF D.J. Wilson led all Bucks bench players in scoring with 13 points in 23 minutes.
Injury Report: SG Tony Snell is listed as “questionable” for Saturday night’s game.
The Magic come into this game winners of only two of their last five games, but those two wins were over Boston and Houston, so this team knows how to show up against stiffer competition for sure. With their 12-11 home record on the year, they also know how to do a decent job of defending their home court, but I think it will be a tall order for them to come away with the win in this game.
Over their last five games Orlando has averaged 104.8 points per game, which is just about what the Bucks have been giving up per game of late, and almost a point higher than their season average of 103.57 points per game. Defensively they have been giving up 109.8 points per game over the same five game stretch, which is over two points higher than their season average. Which means they are most likely in for a long night against Milwaukee.
C Nikola Vucevic had himself quite the game in their overtime loss to Detroit on Wednesday, scoring 24 points and grabbing 13 rebounds for the double-double. PG D.J. Augustin had a team high 7 assists to go with 13 points in 32 minutes. SG Terrence Ross led all Magic bench players in scoring with 24 points in 33 minutes in a game which saw six Orlando players score in double digits. This team effort will go along way with sticking with this Milwaukee Bucks team on Saturday night.
Injury Report: C Mo Bamba is listed as “questionable” for Saturday’s game, while C Timofey Mozgov is listed as “out.”

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Orlando will be playing the second game of a back to back as they are facing the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night, so look for Milwaukee to come out firing from the get go and tire out the Magic by halftime.
This game shouldn’t be pretty, as the Bucks are just too much of a powerful team for Orlando to handle. Expect a double digit lead from the second quarter on.
