Just like last night, the Milwaukee Bucks are playing in Los Angeles, only this time they get to face the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Bucks won last night against the Lakers, pushing their winning streak to nine games. Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo had 38 points and 10 rebounds in the contest. Milwaukee is only one game behind Boston for the NBA’s best record.
Los Angeles is currently fifth in the Western Conference and will be looking to bounce back from a loss Wednesday night. They played in Milwaukee on February 2nd, losing by one point despite entering the fourth quarter with a nine-point lead. This game is the second of a three-game homestand.
Game one between these clubs was a tight affair that came down to the wire. Let’s see how the encore will unfold on a national stage.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Clippers Prediction
It’s kind of hard to bet against the Bucks right now, especially when factoring in who is out tonight. Khris Middleton and Bobby Portis are major blows, but Middleton has been out most of the season and on a minutes restriction. Neither of those players are as important as Kawhi Leonard, who is incredible when healthy, albeit those instances are somewhat rare. At the end of the day, the best player on the floor will be Giannis Antetokounmpo, and the better team this season has been the Bucks. For the second time this month, Milwaukee should beat the Clippers, this one for their 10th consecutive win.
