Match predictions: Milwaukee Bucks vs Golden State Warriors – Preview and Team News

Golden State Warriors will be traveling to Milwaukee for their inter-conference matchup against the Bucks

Golden State Warriors had just lost their top spot in the Western Conference but still have a 30-10 record – 2nd best in the league. Milwaukee Bucks had won matches at a stretch and then stumbled against Hornets miserably. They currently have a 26-17 record in this season.

The Warriors’ dream of pairing Curry and Thompson worked well against the Cavs. Thompson got a win in his season debut. Then the faceoff against Memphis Grizzlies was a different story altogether. Turnovers and Grizzlies gutsy play hold off Golden State Warriors. Ja Morant and co outclassed the Warriors at home. This concludes their current streak – L1 

The Bucks were riding high after defeating the championship contender Nets team. Then they were against the Hornets in two back-to-back away fixtures. Terry Rozier played a huge part in both matches and the Bucks were defeated in both games. This concludes the Bucks current streak – L2

When two big teams face each other, their current form and individual performances decide the outcome of the game. This is one such match where either team’s superstar will have to perform extraordinarily to win the game for the team.  

Two important pieces of the match – Draymond Green and Jrue Holiday are reported questionable but will play in the game. Having fully fit teams will surely make the game more interesting. Warriors depth and slight quality advantage will give them positive results in the game 

Star Player for Golden State Warriors: Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry has been doing it all on the offensive end. His shooting and playmaking are instrumental for the Warriors. Now that he has Klay Thompson in the team, the pair could cause havoc in the opponent’s defense.

Perfect Support Cast for Warriors: Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green

Draymond Green is not an elite ball-handler n high-scoring player but his game sense, defense, and vision for a pass make him an integral part of the Warriors team. To content against offensive-minded Milwaukee Bucks, his decision-making would be vital.

Andrew Wiggins found new life at the Warriors. He is 2nd top scorer for the team and has a good shooting record against teams above .500 records.  

Star player for Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo

He is the only player (besides Nikola Jokic) who is dominating both ends of the floor. He tops the current power ranking or KIA MVP race. Giannis already has a huge double-double average of points and rebounds in the league but he can be effective with assists also.

Perfect Support Cast for Bucks: Jrue Holiday and Bobby Portis

Khris Middleton is considered as the “robin” of the team, but against a strong defense, he is often seen struggling. Thus Jrue Holiday and Bobby Portis need to step up against the mighty Warriors team. If Portis can dominate the rim, it could help the Bucks to sneak a win
