The Wizards snapped teir 3-game losing streak in their last game and the Bucks had lost 2 straight before a win in their last game. These 2 teams met early in the season in Milwaukee where the Wizards beat the Bucks 118-113 and in the Nation’s Capital tonight they are a 4-point favorite.
This season the Wizards are 2-2 at home and the Bucks are 2-2 on the road.
In their last games the Bucks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-105 and the Wizards beat the Orlando Magic 108-99.
The Bucks have lost 8 of their last 10 games facing the Wizards and in that span Washington has averaged 105.3 ppg.
Milwaukee ranks 23rd in the league in scoring and 17th in opponents’ points allowed.
Greg Monroe is having a solid first season in Milwaukee and he leads the team in scoring and rebounding. He went for 16 points and 17 boards in the win over the Cavs and he and 2nd leading scorer FW Giannis Antetokounmpo are the 2 key guys the Wizards have to key on.
Milwaukee is not a high scoring team, but they are balanced with 3 guyards and 2 frontcourt players averaging in double figures.
Jabari Parker, who was the 2nd pick of last season’s draft is working himself back from an ACL tear and had a season high 12 points in his last game, but he is out for this game with a foot injury.
The Wizards are led by their solid young G duo in Bradley Beal and John Wall, but Beal is a question mark for tonight’s game with a shoulder injury. If he cannot go it will be a big blow since he leads the team averaging 22.7 ppg.
One of the big match ups in this game is Monroe facing Washington C Marcin Gortat, who is averaging 10.8 ppg and leads the Wizards in rebounding.
His offense is important tonight, especially if Beal cannot go, but his D will be more important not allowing Monroe to dominate the paint.
Washington has a solid offense ranking 7th in the league in scoring, but they only rank 29th in opponents’ points allowed.
The big key tonight will be if Beal can go, as if he cannot the Wizards may be in trouble with their struggling defense.
