Tonight our beloved Bucks head to the coast with the best smoke as they start a four game road trip out West. The Bucks are coming off of a pair of wins over the weekend where they knocked down the Bulls and the Spurs. Giannis exploded in their win over San Antonio going for 25 points ten boards and eight dimes, but Milwaukee’s weak front line was exposed as Lamarcus Aldridge racked up 34 points.
In their last meeting, Milwaukee fell the the Clippers last Wednesday when DeAndre Jordan made John Henson his pretty little bitch and dropped a casual 25/22/4. That doesn’t work and now we will be without Thon Maker tonight as he is out with a groin. Hopefully we will get to see a healthy dose of Tyler Zeller as he becomes more comfortable in the system. In the end this thing is going to come down to defense and Giannis. Sadly this is going to be the story of the rest of the season but particularly tonight. In last week’s loss Giannis left after only 17 minutes of play with a minor injury.
In those 17 Giannis had 12/2/2 with 3 BLOCKS. If there can be that kind of rim protection tonight, paired with some prolific offensive help from Middleton and Bledsoe the Bucks can stay hot and ride into Oakland on Wednesday.
