In a game from NBA, we will see Milwaukee Bucks at Houston Rockets.
Two of the hottest in the NBA will go head-to-head on Wednesday. The Milwaukee Bucks won 10 of their last 12 games, including a 114-102 home win over Utah Jazz in the last outing. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team in scoring with 30 points and 10 rebounds while Malcolm Brogdon added 21 points and 5 assists. Milwaukee has 28 wins and just 11 losses on the season and they are also 19-4 at home.
Meanwhile, Houston Rockets have won 12 out of 14 on their own and will be looking to stay hot even with Chris Paul out. The team is coming off a 125-113 home win over the Nuggets in a game where James Harden finished with 32 points and 14 assists while Clint Capela added 31 points.
Even though the absence of Chris Paul and Eric Gordon was not felt in the last few games, I expect this to be inevitable in this one. They will be facing one of the best NBA teams on the road and I cannot see them winning this one. Giannis will take care of business against the leaky defense Houston has.
