Unlike the Thunder, who have created some leeway in conference standings, the Bucks need to pull out a win against the Thunder. Coming off a 109-105 loss against the Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee cannot afford to lose any more games, lest risk falling in Eastern Conference rankings. Right now the Bucks rank 5th in the East, thanks to the 40-37 record they’ve posted this season. But with the Atlanta Hawks right on their tails at 39-38, and both the Chicago Bulls (38-39) and the Miami Heat (37-40) right behind the Hawks, there are plenty of teams looking to overtake the Bucks. Needless to say, Milwaukee cannot afford to lose two in a row.
To help keep the vultures at bay, the Bucks will turn to leading point-scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 23.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per matchup. Second in points for the Bucks is Jabari Parker, who is draining 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per outing.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Since the Thunder are pretty much a lock-in for this year’s postseason, the biggest story revolving Oklahoma City involves Russell Westbrook’s historic season. Although some online NBA betting fans are critical of Westbrook’s play-style, oftentimes calling it selfish, there’s no denying that the Thunder’s star is delivering a season for the record books. On top of averaging a triple-double for the season, Westbrook is just one triple-double shy of tying Oscar Robertson’s single-season NBA record of 41.
To help overcome the Bucks, the online NBA betting favorites will turn to their triple-double machine who is averaging 31.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 10.4 assists per contest. Westbrook will be looking for some help from Victor Oladipo, who is putting up 16.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per contest.
