Tuesday, May 11th finds the Orlando Magic and the Milwaukee Bucks meeting for the third and final time this season. The initial meeting occurred on January 11th with the Bucks winning 121-99. The more recent match of April 11th was also won by the Bucks 124-87 extending their win streak to six games in a row versus Orlando
The Bucks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 63 wins in 116meetings. Last season the squads faced each other four times with the Bucks sweeping the regular-season series. Then they met in the postseason and although the Magic took the opening game they lost the next four.
The Magic enter the final week of play looking to finish the season as one of the bottom three teams so they can receive the 14 percent odds to win the NBA Draft lottery.
They’ll have competition with six teams fully in the mix to win those three coveted positions. The Rockets have one sewn up by virtue of only winning 16 games this season and only three games left.
The Magic, Cavaliers, Thunder, Wolves, and Pistons are closely grouped with between 20 and 21 wins and 47 and 49 losses. It’s conceivable all of them could finish with the same record and if that happens the league will conduct a series of coin tosses to determine how many bingo balls each team gets.
Orlando should be able to lose out with this match against the Bucks followed by the Hawks and two games versus the 76ers to finish the season.
Wendell Carter Jr., (left eye abrasion) is questionable. Michael Carter-Williams (left ankle sprain), James Ennis III (sore right calf), Chuma Okeke (left ankle sprain) Otto Porter Jr. (left foot pain), Terrence Ross (back spasms) are all out.
Markelle Fultz (torn ACL) and Jonathan Isaac (left knee ACL recovery) are both lost for the season.
Prior to the loss Monday to the desperate Spurs the Bucks had won five in a row.
As the team is prepping for the postseason and navigated injury to Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday they’ve been building momentum at the perfect time.
The two wins against the Nets sent a very loud message to Brooklyn that Milwaukee isn’t about to roll over just because they built a super team.
In the loss to the Spurs, all five starters scored in double-figures with Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the way with 28 points. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday also registered over twenty points with 23 and 20 points respectively.
This week for the Bucks they would like to perform well so they finish with a higher seed than the Nets and get at least two rounds of home-court advantage. Ultimately, even that doesn’t matter — the only thing that will is getting to the NBA Finals. That’s what this whole season was about and now only time will tell how successful they’ve been.
- The Bucks are 9-1 in their last 10 head to head meetings
- The Bucks are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 3-7 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Orlando Magic vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Even if the Bucks don’t play their core it doesn’t behoove the Magic to win. That said, Cole Anthony and his crew like to compete and keep games close so we’ll see if they can get hot from the perimeter.
