Milwaukee Bucks Preview
The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off of a nail-biting victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a fantastic game, and the Bucks leaned on him to shoot the game-winning shot with two seconds left on the clock.

The Milwaukee Bucks have finally gotten back on track, improving to 14-8 on the season. After a poor start to the season, the Bucks are slowly moving up the Eastern Conference table, tied for third place with the Chicago Bulls.
Since their championship run, the Milwaukee Bucks have had a series of injuries to their players. The Bucks have promoted Bobby Portis to the starting rotation in place of Brook Lopez, who is out for an extended period of time. They’ve also signed DeMarcus Cousins to their squad as a center-depth player.

G – Jrue Holiday | G – Grayson Allen | F – Khris Middleton | F – Giannis Antetokounmpo | C – Bobby Portis
Toronto Raptors Preview
The Raptors are coming off a loss to the Grizzlies in Memphis. The Raptors have been inconsistent this season, despite the spectacular performances of Pascal Siakam and Scottie Barnes.
The Toronto Raptors have struggled to establish themselves as a competitive team with Siakam as their sole star-caliber player. Overall, they played bad basketball in their last game against the Memphis Grizzlies. With 18 giveaways, the Raptors shot a dismal 25.6 percent from three-point range and were outrebounded 54-44.
The Toronto Raptors will return home on the heels of a three-game losing run, which isn’t unusual for them. The Toronto Raptors are now dealing with additional issues as they continue to be without OG Anunoby, who has been out due to injury. The Raptors will try to win their first game of a seven-game homestand, hoping to overcome adversity and return to winning ways.
Toronto Raptors Predicted Lineup
G – Fred VanVleet | G – Gary Trent Jr. | F – Scottie Barnes | F – Pascal Siakam | C – Precious Achiuwa
Match Prediction: Bucks vs. Raptors
In their game against the Toronto Raptors, the Milwaukee Bucks should come out on top. Of course, the Raptors will not only have home-court advantage, but they will also be playing the second night of a back-to-back against the Bucks. They are, however, a team in chaos right now.
Given their present form, the Milwaukee Bucks should be able to pull away with a win in this game.
