NBA Regular Season: Bucks Vs. WizardsPublished January 28, 2020 by Sol FH
A preview and prediction ahead of tonight's big game in the Eastern Conference live at 1:00 GMT.
The best team in the NBA is on the card tonight hoping to extend their win-streak to 9-games against the Washington Wizards. The Bucks are in excellent form and Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing some of the best basketball of his career. He led all scorers in their win against the Hornets with 30-points, even though all players were visibly upset after learning about the loss of Kobe Bryant, daughter, and the other passengers aboard the helicopter that crashed killing all aboard.
The Wizards will need to play flawlessly in order to beat the Bucks at home. The Wizards are now 15-30 and coming off a loss in one of the highest-scoring games against the Hawks, 152-133. Leading all the scoring for Washington was Bradley Beal with a 40-point game. The Hawks were just too strong in the second and third quarters for the Wizards to come back from. The Wizards shot a decent 48% from the floor with 33% from beyond the arc.
The Bucks are a team that the Wizards should be fearing. They can run the floor extremely well and dominate within the pain. The defense needs to be the top priority for Washington and the must stop as many 3-point shots as possible and stand tall in the paint. Stopping Giannis will leave the Bucks' fine perimeter shooters open so they must deal with that too.
