The Milwaukee Bucks (51-30) had a slow start to the season but have picked up steam recently. Second in the Eastern Conference, they have won seven of their last 10 games and trail the first-place Miami Heat (53-28) by two games. They'll rely on Giannis Antetokounmpo to once again come up with the goods as they have done all season long.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the surprise packages of the season as their young roster has shown incredible potential. Getting into the postseason would be considered a success for the team at this point. However, over the last couple of weeks, the hype has died down a bit as they have lost eight of their last 10 games. They are only one game ahead of the Atlanta Hawks, who hold the ninth seed in the East.
