The Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers have become two of the most exciting teams in the NBA who happened to be outside the playoffs looking in.
The problem is that one of the two players who make this possible — Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid — will be absent from competition.
*All statistics, rankings, standings and records are accurate as of this writing at 5:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Jan. 25.
Philly enters this game with the Rookie of the Year favorite on their side.
Although Joel Embiid is running away with the ROY a bit more with every passing game, this won’t be one of those games.
Following a minor knee injury suffered over the weekend against the Portland Trail Blazers, the young center will be sidelined for his second-straight outing Wednesday night.
How does Philly compensate?
For starters, it needs a solid two-way contribution from its frontcourt members.
Embiid has done a masterful job in his first season playing both sides of the court. Even if it means getting defense from Nerlens Noel and offense from Jahlil Okafor, this group needs to make sure it is challenging the opponent on both ends.
Otherwise, it could be a long night for this young roster.
The Milwaukee Bucks are Giannis Antetokounmpo’s team. This much has become clear during the Greek Freak’s breakout season.
But the truth is that as strong of a year as the All-Star is having, and as much as he makes his presence felt on both ends of the court, he’s not doing it alone.
Jabari Parker is living up to the hype of a No. 2 pick.
He’s not only become the perfect complement to Giannis, but he’s shown he can take over a game when needed and can control the offense alongside one of the best all-around players we have in the game today.
Not only is Milwaukee better overall than Philly, it has all of its main pieces intact.
That’s good news for a team that already has home-court advantage on its side in this one.
