Milwaukee dropped the second game of its home and home with Charlotte before Christmas and resumed after the holiday with a loss in Chicago against the suddenly formidable Bulls. Kris Dunn had a big game and was clutch in the fourth quarter, bothering the Bucks’ guards with his pressure defense.
The Bucks can struggle with finding a point guard who can initiate the offense. They like to use Giannis, but when he’s defended by someone who doesn’t back down and can get into his shorts, Milwaukee has to turn to somebody else and they don’t really have a steady presence when it isn’t the Greek Freak. Even when he is available to take the ball up, it just isn’t sustainable for Milwaukee to do that to a seven-footer.
Milwaukee has to deal with the Timberwolves on Thursday night before this game, while the Thunder will be at home with the night off. The road stays tough from there with a game in Toronto, followed by Indiana and the Raptors again at home. The Bucks hit the road for two more after that against the Pacers (for the second time) and the Wizards.
The Thunder is now the owner of the longest winning streak in the NBA after it won its sixth in a row over the Raptors on Wednesday night.
It wasn’t particularly close, OKC running away 124–107. Russell Westbrook and Paul George combined for 63 points and both Melo and Steven Adams chipped in 18. Andre Roberson played lockdown defense on DeMar DeRozan, who finished 4-for-16 from the field.
OKC’s win streak includes the Rockets, Jazz (twice), Nuggets and now the Raptors. Russell Westbrook has been ultra efficient, by his standards, and the floor spacing finally looks a little better. I’ve not seen anything to make me think the ball movement is any better, but for now, it may just be enough. The NBA can get a little lazy around this time.
And for now, OKC has five starters who do at least one thing really well. That fact alone is going to be enough for them to beat most opponents, especially at with its great home court advantage.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. OKC Thunder NBA Prediction: the Thunder make it seven in a row.
There’s just way too much going against the Bucks to expect them to win this game in OKC. Home court and the extra rest should be enough for OKC. And Paul George is a good candidate to at least make life tough on Giannis.
