The Milwaukee Bucks are 2-3 over their last five games. The schedule does seem to get any easier for Milwaukee, as they travel to face the young Philadelphia 76ers. The Bucks are 9-12 on the road this year. The 76ers have won six of their last seven, and are one game over .500 on the year. Expect an entertaining matchup
The last time the Bucks and 76ers took the field against each other, was last season. The teams faced each other four times, with them splitting the season series, 2-2.
The Milwaukee Bucks are a talented team, but are still struggling to put together an extended win streak. Milwaukee recently took a loss at home to the Miami Heat, 106-101. The Bucks shot 43 percent from the floor and 39 percent from three point land in the loss.
The Bucks still seem like a team that is getting use to how each other play the game. Milwaukee has talent, but not enough right now to be considered a serious contender. Milwaukee is two games over .500 in the Eastern conference this year.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a great player for Milwaukee, but has yet to make that major stride at becoming a top five NBA player. Antetokounmpo numbers say otherwise. He is averaging 28 points and 10 rebounds per game this year. If he can find another star in free agency, the Bucks will be a contender.
Aside from the play of the “Greek freak”, Milwaukee’s Khris Middelton is averaging 20 points per game. Eric Bledsoe has been playing good as well. He is averaging 17 points per game this year. Last season’s rookie of the year, Malcom Brogden, is scoring 13.3 points per game.
Milwaukee might have some decent role players along side of Giannis Antetokounmpo, but still need another star player in order to contend.
The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the youngest and most talented teams in the NBA this season. Despite a few slip ups early in the year, the 76ers seem to be back on track. Philadelphia has won two in a row. The 76ers last beat the Boston Celtics in Boston, 89-80. Philadelphia held Boston to 40.5 percent shooting from the floor and 24 percent from three in the win.
If the 76ers are going to make the playoffs this year, they must continue to win games. Philadelphia is one game over .500 this year. The team is much improved from last season, and doing it without Markelle Fultz. Fultz was the first pick in last years draft. He has played in four games this year.
Defensively, the 76ers are allowing 107.5 points per game this season. Good enough to rank them 22nd in the NBA in points allowed. Joel Embiid’s length and athletic ability around the rim, is going to play a factor tonight. Expect a good matchup between Embiid and Antetokounmpo.
