Wednesday, March 17th the Milwaukee Bucks will meet the Philadelphia 76ers for the first time this season. This match offers an early look at two clubs who could meet in the playoffs.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Bucks taking both contests. The Bucks hold the slim edge in all-time victories with 111 wins in the team’s 213 meetings.
.The Bucks are on a roll on a four-game win streak and winners of nine of their last ten games. Much of the credit goes to their generational talent Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The back-to-back Most Valuable Player is averaging 29.0 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 6.2 assists. Yet he’s raised his level of play garnering three consecutive triple-doubles since returning from the All-Star Break.
In the most game versus the Washington Wizards, he posted 31 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists. Every Bucks starter reached double-figures as well as two reserves.
They included Khris Middleton (23), Brook Lopez (22), Jrue Holiday (15), Bobby Portis (13), Donte DiVencenzo (12), and Bryn Forbes (10).
The Bucks are fully healthy with no players on the injured list or resting.
The 76ers learned they would be without the services of Joel Embiid for at least two weeks due to a bone bruise he suffered when he hyperextended his leg.
Although the 76ers have Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and several quality players there was concern Embiid’s absence could cause Philly to suffer a temporary setback.
Fortunately, that hasn’t been the case (at least initially) with the team winning both games he’s been out. It runs their win streak to six games in a row and 10 wins in their last 12 matches.
In the most recent victory, Philly won a defensive battle against Atlantic division rival the New York Knicks (99-96). two 76ers registered double-double efforts.
Those players were Ben Simmons (16 points, and 13 rebounds plus seven assists) and Dwight Howard (11 points and 12 rebounds).
Tobias Harris led the scoring effort with 30 points while Seth Curry (20) and Furkan Korkmaz (12) were the other double-figure contributors.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Timing is everything and the Bucks have the majority of advantages on their side for the match. First of all, the 76ers are playing in the second game of a back-to-back set with the front side being a defensive battle so arrive to this match already on tired legs.
Philly is better at home than on the road so have that on their side. But the biggest item is they won’t have their big man Joel Embiid to counter Giannis Antetokounmpo.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
Based on how the Greek Freak has been playing of late, Ben Simmons will be in for a long night and even if Doc Rivers employs the wall defense the advantages lean heavily toward the Bucks.
