Milwaukee Bucks (42-14) vs Indiana Pacers (38-19), Bankers Life Fieldhouse, 7:00 pm ET

The red-hot Indiana Pacers will host the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana as they look for their fifth straight win at home.

The Bucks are coming off an easy victory against the Chicago Bulls, while the Pacers too emerged comfortable winners against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday.

Let us see how things stand for both the teams .ahead of their matchup.

The Milwaukee Bucks' perspective

The Bucks are hot right now with just two losses in the last 14 games they have played.

They dominated the Chicago Bulls in the last game with Giannis Antetokounmpo having a huge night, scoring 29 points and grabbing 17 rebounds. He was well supported by Eric Bledsoe, who added another 19 to the scoring sheet.

The Bucks have been strong on both ends of the floor and are undoubtedly the best team in the Eastern Conference. However, the test tonight will be against the Indiana Pacers who are also a high-quality side.

As the Pacers saunter their way to the All-Star weekend, they are faced with their toughest test yet.


The Pacers have lost Oladipo, but that has not affected them one bit and they will be eying their seventh straight win.

They beat the Charlotte Hornets in the previous game, with everybody contributing to the team's cause.

How things might unfold

The Pacers are on a roll right now, and they are playing at home. However, they would do well not to underestimate the abilities of Giannis and the Bucks who have been great on the road thus far.

I am going to break the trend and predict a win for the Pacers due to their relatively deeper lineup.
