Featured Game | Milwaukee Bucks vs. Golden State Warriors

Why the Bucks can cover

After a two-game road trip, Milwaukee returns home for one game. The Bucks have the second-best record in the league, including a 12-3 mark at home. Forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has played in 22 games for the Bucks, averaging 31.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game. He grabbed a season-high 18 rebounds in the loss at Houston on Sunday, and had a streak of eight consecutive 30-point scoring games snapped on Friday at Dallas. It was the second-longest 30-point streak in team history.

Also powering the Milwaukee offense is veteran guard Jrue Holiday (questionable, illness), now in his 14th season. Holiday is averaging 19.1 points, 7.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game. He hits on 48.2% of his field goals, including 40.2% from 3-point range. He is coming off a 25-point, eight-assist and three-steal game against the Rockets. Holiday made a season-high six 3-pointers on Dec. 2 in a 133-129 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, finishing with 28 points, nine assists and six rebounds.

Why the Warriors can cover

Despite that, Milwaukee isn’t a lock to cover the Warriors vs. Bucks spread. That’s because the defending champions are led by point guard Stephen Curry. In 34.9 minutes per game, he is averaging 30 points, seven assists, 6.6 rebounds and one steal. In Saturday’s win over the Celtics, Curry connected for 32 points, including six 3-pointers, grabbed six rebounds and dished out seven assists. Curry’s current streak of 213 consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer made is an NBA record.

Small forward Andrew Wiggins, the team’s second-leading scorer, will miss his fourth game in a row with a groin injury. Helping pick up the scoring slack is forward Jordan Poole, who averages 17.8 points, 4.6 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game. In the win over Boston, Poole scored 20 points, dished out four assists and grabbed three rebounds. In his last five games, he is averaging 26 points, scoring 20 or more in each game, including two 30-point efforts. He has made 21 of 23 free-throw attempts (91.3%) in his last two games.
