The Milwaukee Bucks are one the of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. They currently have a record of 31-12.

This makes them second in their conference. The Toronto Raptors are first with a record of 33-12. Both teams are on winning streaks.

The Raptors have won their last five games, and the Bucks have won two. The Bucks were first in the conference but they keep switching with the Raptors. As of now, both teams are the favorites in the Eastern Conference.

The Raptors have an advantage, but only slightly. The Bucks can continue their journey towards the first spot of the East. This game is one of many opportunities.

The Bucks face the Memphis Grizzlies later today. On Monday, the Grizzlies lost to the Houston Rockets.

James Harden had a 57-point game and helped the Rockets beat the Grizzlies. This loss put the Memphis Grizzlies at a record of 19-24. They are 14th in the Western Conference.

On the other hand, the Bucks have won their last two games. They beat the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday and the Miami Heat yesterday.

The Bucks won both games by significant margins. They beat the Atlanta Hawks 133-114. Then, they beat the Heat 124-86. The Bucks beat the Hawks and Heat by 19 and 38 points respectively.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had a triple-double against the Heat. He had 12 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. It wasn't the typical triple-double but Antetokounmpo tallied his fourth triple-double of the season.


He only took nine shots and played 24 minutes. This was due to the blowout and the Bucks having six other players in double figures. Eric Bledsoe led the team in scoring with 17 points.

The Bucks' next game seems like a win. They are capable of beating the Grizzlies. The only disadvantage is that this is a back-to-back.

However, with such a large victory over the Heat, Antetokounmpo had a chance to rest. This game can add to the Bucks' winning streak and help them get closer to the Raptors. They should take advantage of it.
