Wende Carter Jr. chipped in with 16 while Coby White had 14 points and nine assists. Thaddeus Young and Daniel Gafford provided the bench production having 13 points each.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Milwaukee Bucks have been struggling to live up to their potential losing three of their first five games into the season. This team looked to be getting their groove with a 47-point victory over the Miami Heat only to lose to the same team by 11 points the following night. It was the best game for reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo giving his team a triple-double of 29 points, 13 rebounds, and ten assists. The missing piece was Kris Middleton who shot 3-of-14 from the field to finish with just 8 points. The defense has been horrible and even allowed Tyler Herro to grab 15 boards over them.
