Milwaukee is 58-22 and has clinched the Eastern Conference. They come into today’s game having beat the Bulls in their last outing. Giannis leads the Bucks averaging 31.1 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. Jrue Holiday has been solid all year, averaging 19.3 points and 7.4 assists per game. This team is loaded and has to be considered the favorite to win it all this year. They have been consistent and able to perform even without Giannis on the court.
