Tuesday, November 7 finds the Milwaukee Bucks facing the Portland Trail Blazers as they enter their fourth week of play in the 2018-19 regular season. Milwaukee finally lost a game (Celtics), but got back in the win column with a 144-109 rout of the Kings. Meanwhile the Blazers recovered from a heart breaking loss to the Lakers with their own 30 point thrashing of the Timberwolves.
The past two seasons Milwaukee swept the season series. The Bucks hold the all-time record having bested Portland in 72 of their 123 matches.
Certainly Milwaukee have been impressive to this point in the season. That said, the loss to the Boston Celtics was their first true test of the season given the Raptors were missing three core contributors and the Sixers have yet to win on the road.
Still, the Bucks can only play who their scheduled to face and have compiled the East’s second best record, league’s second ranked defense, third ranked offense and top net differential.
New Head Coach Mike Budenholzer has surrounded Giannis Antetokounmpo with perimeter shooters who hoist 41 attempts per game (Houston 41.3 attempts) and connect with the 7th best efficiency.
Tuesday’s match should offer further insight to just how good Milwaukee’s offense is. Through their nine games the Bucks have played three top three defenses (Boston, Toronto, Indy) with Toronto short handed and Indy the second game of the season.
Moreover, of the top 10 perimeter defenses Milwaukee has only faced Boston (loss) and Philly who held them to 30.2%. Portland hold teams to 32.8% which is sixth ranked.
Christian Wood (left middle finger) is questionable for the Blazers game. Confirmed out are a trio of Bucks: D.J. Wilson (hamstring), Trevon Duval (eye) and Jodie Meeks (suspension).
Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard is posting MVP like numbers early in the season with his 28.1 points, 5.7 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 37.0% from deep. Backcourt partner CJ McCollum and big man Jusuf Nurkic from the big three.
However a trio of players have re-instilled the strength which positioned Portland as the West’s third seed last season. Those players are Al-Farouq Aminu who functions as the Swiss Army knife, new addition sharp shooter Nik Stauskas and rising talent Zach Collins.
Left knee soreness has kept Maurice Harkless out the five previous games. Gary Trent Jr. (right quadriceps) remains sidelined and an undetermined return date.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Despite a 4-2 home record the Moda Center remains one of the most difficult venues for a road squad. Both losses the Blazers suffered this season could easily have gone the other way. This is just the Bucks fourth road game (2-1) and the big question is if Milwaukee’s perimeter shooters get shut down can they find a way to win.
