Milwaukee Bucks preview

The Milwaukee Bucks have the best record in the league and have been playing great basketball since the very beginning. The Bucks finished with the best record last season and are looking to repeat that feat this season also.

The Bucks have a 34-6 record at this moment and are an elite team on both ends of the floor.

Key player - Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leading contender for the MVP award again this season. Giannis has been a freak on both ends of the floor for the Bucks.

He is averaging 29.8 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 5.5 assists in 37 games this season. Giannis is also shooting an astonishingly high 55% from the field. Giannis has also developed a reliable three-point shot this season.

Bucks predicted lineup:

Eric Bledsoe, Wesley Matthews, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brook Lopez


Portland Trail Blazers preview

The Portland Trail Blazers reached the Western Conference finals last season. They were considered a lock to make the playoffs but have been badly struggling this season.

The Blazers have a 16-23 record at the moment and are the 10th ranked team in the Western Conference. They are 1 game behind the 8th placed team, Memphis Grizzlies.

Key player - Damian Lillard

Damian Lillard can claim to be the best point guard in the league today in the absence of Steph Curry. He has been playing very good for the Blazers and needs to keep firing in order for them to make the playoffs.

Lillard is averaging 26.8 points and 7.6 assists per game. He is one of the leading point scorers in the league this season.

Blazers predicted lineup

Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Kent Bazemore, Carmelo Anthony, Hassan Whiteside


Bucks vs Blazers Match prediction

The Bucks are the best team in the NBA right now. They have the best record and are great on both ends of the floor. The Blazers have improved after their early struggle but still, need a lot more cohesion within the group.

I predict the Blazers to get a tight win in this match against the Bucks.
