Cavaliers vs Bucks: NBA Action at Its FinestPublished November 29, 2016 by Sol FH
Check out the game preview and online betting markets ahead of tonight's game at 1:00 GMT.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are in first place in the NBA Eastern Conference at 13-2. The Cavs are one of the favorites to win the entire NBA Championship again this year, although it is very early on. The Cavs have been on a tear since the beginning of the season and are now on a five game winning streak and are working on their best 15-game start in the team history. The Bucks are home tonight at BMO Harris Bradley Center, but this will likely mean little, as the Cavs are on a hot streak and don't look to be stopping it anytime soon.
The Cavs have been excellent from beyond the arc, netting more than 10 three-pointers in all of their first 15 games. This is a record in the NBA, but they are still second (if you can believe it) in threes made per game (13.8) and for their stunning three-point field goal percentage at .392. Their main three-point shooters are Frye, Shumpert, Irving and Love. These talented players are all in the NBA top 20 list for three-point shooters including Frye at first place overall.
Defense will be the name of the game tonight and if the Bucks are to have any chance of winning, they must find a way of stopping Cleveland's average of 112.00 points-per-game. The Bucks have been very average this season at 7-8 and they are coming off a big win against the Magic two days ago. The Bucks starting point guard Matthew Dellavedova spent three seasons with the Cavs before they traded him to Milwaukee, and they hope that decision doesn't come around and bite them in the behind tonight.
The move to the Bucks has been nothing but great for the Aussie guard, as he is averaging a career-high in all categories. The Bucks also have new rising star Giannis Antetokounmpo who is behind only LeBron James in most games with stats of 25-5-5.
