The Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards are on the opposite end of the competitive spectrum in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee wants nothing more than to earn the No. 1 seed over Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors, and the Wizards want nothing more than to lose as many games as possible to collect ping-pong balls when the NBA Draft Lottery finally rolls around.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has lived up to his Greek Freak moniker this season, and aside from maybe James Harden (and maayybe Stephen Curry), he’s the frontrunner for MVP with the 2018-19 campaign’s second half well underway.
Against Washington, Giannis will look to capitalize not on his own shooting but the shooting of his teammates. Nobody on the Wizards’ roster aside from possibly Trevor Ariza (and that’s a big “possibly”) can keep Antetokounmpo out of the lane.
Giannis can expect the Wiz bigs to body him up before he can get to the rim, which will, in turn, open up shooters in the corner.
If his teammates are knocking down thos shots, the Wizards will have to compensate by discontinuing any help defense they’d be using on Giannis.
The Greek Freak will then be able to have a field day at the rim.
Expect a big game from Bradley Beal on Saturday. He’s really the Wizards’ only consistent option with John Wall out, and he should be able to have a high-scoring output against the Bucks.
Efficiency, however, will be the bigger thing to watch out for.
Beal could go for 35 points but if he needs 40 shots to get it, that’s not going to do his team any good.
Look at Beal’s field-goal percentage as a much better indicator than his points and three-point makes as to whether or not Washington is keeping this game competitive.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The Wizards have homecourt advantage here, but they’re “homecourt advantage doesn’t really matter” bad. They’re showcasing Bradley Beal ahead of the Thursday trade deadline, so you can expect him to put up a whole bunch of shots, but Giannis Antetokounmpo could very well go for another 30-point triple-double.
