Following a shocking loss to start the first-round the Milwaukee Bucks have bounced back with two consecutive wins versus the Orlando Magic. Monday, they’ll seek to take a stranglehold on the series.
With the Bucks winning comfortably in the last two games they’re breathing easier although reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo claims they’ve decided to play like underdogs instead of title favorites in order to keep their edge.
They’ll need to keep that focus even with an injury-riddled Magic squad because they won’t back down even if the person who mops up the wet areas of the hardwood has to don a Magic jersey.
Ennis is a starter who plays between 26 and 31 minutes while Williams is a bench player who plays approximately 15 or 16 minutes. Therefore the dual ejections benefited Milwaukee, and hurt Orlando who was already shorthanded.
Aside from the long term losses of Jonathan Isaac (torn ACL/meniscus) and Mo Bamba (post COVID-19 complications) Orlando is also missing Aaron Gordon (hamstring) and Michael Carter-Williams (foot).
The list of walking wounded makes it difficult for coach Steve Clifford to put together a team that can compete with the top team in the NBA and who happen to be fully healthy with a deep bench.
That said, the Magic never quit and won’t – – it’s not their identity.
Four players registered double-figures Saturday, led by their most consistent player Nikola Vucevic. He followed up two double-doubles of 30 plus points and 10 plus rebounds with a more pedestrian 20 points in Game 3.
D.J. Augustin (24), Terrence Ross (20), and Evan Fournier (13) were the other double-figure contributors.
Gordon is questionable for Monday.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Over is 6-2 in MIL last 8 games as a favorite.
- Over is 21-5-1 in ORL last 27 overall.
- Over is 9-3 in ORL last 12 games as an underdog
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
The two team queries heading into Monday are whether Gordon will play and if Khris Middleton has truly rediscovered his shooting touch.

Considering the size of the spread it’s a matter of whether you buy anyone besides the MVP has bought into the underdog persona. Secondarily, can the Magic get hot from the perimeter — the area the Bucks continue to ignore in favor of protecting the paint.
If Gordon returns that could also sway the point differential. But with the other elite East squads progressing, that should be ample motivation.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
