The Milwaukee Bucks host the Portland Trail Blazers in this east-west showdown of 2017 playoff teams.
Both Portland and Milwaukee claimed victories in their season openers. Saturday, however, each squad will compete on the second night of back-to-back sets.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers upended perennial high-lottery resident Phoenix by 48 points. In that painfully one-sided affair, minus All-Star CJ McCollum, Damian Lillard (27 points) and Pat Connaughton (24) caught fire to the tune of 51 points.
With McCollum returning after a one-game suspension, the offense vs. defense interplay between the stylistically opposed Blazers and Bucks should prove intriguing.
While Phoenix showed little resolve on its home floor opposite Portland, conversely, Milwaukee’s length, size, and cohesion will be a test for visiting Portland.
The key matchup in this contest pits Lillard and McCollum against Malcom Brogdon and Kris Middleton.
Under Jason Kidd’s watchful eye, the Milwaukee Bucks have shown yearly growth and are now among the Eastern Conference vanguard.
During a quality season-opening win vs. ailing Boston, Milwaukee gained MVP-caliber production from Giannis Antetokounmpo (37 points, 13 assists). The “Greek Freak” is nipping at LeBron James’ heels for finest individual Eastern Conference talent; further, the physically gifted 22-year-old is a definitive game-changer vs. Portland, and any other opponent.
Though in this space-and-pace era, Milwaukee’s outside shooting is subpar, nonetheless, the Bucks possess unique weapons and an understanding of themselves which Portland may struggle to overcome.
