The NBA is back on the schedule as Milwaukee Bucks will grapple with Charlotte Hornets.
Milwaukee beat Oklahoma City 133-86 at home Friday night in their last game as a 10.5-point favourite. And on the other side, Charlotte earned a surprising 99-96 road victory over Toronto as a 13.5-point underdog in their last game Friday night.
Milwaukee Bucks Form
The Bucks are one of the best teams in the NBA this season. Moreover, as I have predicted, they even had an edge over their main rivals the Raptors. And now the Bucks have four wins in a row after the All-Star break. As for the postseason, the Bucks have clinched a playoff spot and that’s the earliest a team has locked down a postseason spot in the last 15 years. Additionally, the team has a 15.5-game lead over Indiana in the Central Division. Also, in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team has 8.5 games ahead of the Raptors for the top spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bucks score an average of 119.7 and that is the best scoring record in the league. Milwaukee has the best record on 51.9 boards per contest combined with the 5th record of 26.2 assists per game. Also, on the defensive side of the game, they are 6th with 107.3 points conceded per night.
Charlotte Hornets Form
The Hornets are heading into this game on the wings of the win over the Raptors. Moreover, they have now five of their last seven games. They’ve been the underdog in all seven games in that stretch so they’ve won outright five times in that situation. Therefore, their current form is really good. And now, the Hornets are fourth in the Southeast Division, 16 games behind the Heat for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is 10th, 5.5 games behind the Magic for the final playoff spot. This is a solid team and with Terry Rozier leading the side.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hornets score an average of 102.2 points per game which is the worst record in the NBA. Also, they have 43 boards per game combined with 23.7 assists per contest. Additionally, the Hornets are average defensively this season as they are 13th in scoring defence by conceding 109.7 points per game.
The Hornets have been on a great run winning as underdogs. Therefore, they have the winning momentum on their side. However, they are facing the best scoring team in the league. The Bucks are on another level and therefore, I expect business as usual for Milwaukee in this game. Simply said, take the Bucks to win this one in a dominant way.
