DET vs MIL DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
A high-flying Milwaukee Bucks will be aiming to extend their winning streak when they host Detroit Pistons in an NBA match at Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Wednesday morning (IST).
There are forces awakening in the East this season, each powerful enough to end Golden State Warriors’ dominance.
Now there is a genuine belief amongst the Eastern Conference teams about their own potential to win the coveted NBA title. No, Cleveland Cavaliers are no longer in the pack to challenge the might of the Dubs. They are not the power they once were and it’s because LeBron James is no longer in the East.
Boston Celtics were everybody’s favourites to lead the charge from the East. And it was no exaggeration considering what happened in the NBA finals last season when the Greens ran Cavaliers ragged and almost beat LeBron James in the NBA conference finals. That too without the injured duo of Kyrie Irving and Gordan Hayward in the ranks.
Toronto Raptors became a different force after some shrewd business in the off-seaosn. Kawhi Leonard’s inclusion, in particular, made the team even more formidable. Their two wins over the Warriors this season makes them out-and-out favourites for the title.
While Milwaukee Bucks have some incredible young talent in their ranks. Giannis Antetokounmpo is a magician everybody is going gaga over for what he has been doing this season. And now the team is on a three-game winning streak and as result have usurped Toronto Raptors from the perch of the Eastern Conference table.
For the first time this season, Detroit Piston have a negative record by two games. They have lost the last two matches coming into this match, falling to Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic in those two fixtures.
In fact, the rut is deeper than what could be perceived from the last two defeats. In the last 14 matches, they have won three times and this is the very reason why they are staring at the fringes of playoff positions.
Other teams below them are now starting to pick up results and the gap between them and 10th placed Brooklyn Nets is now just one game. So things can certainly change in a trice if Pistons don’t stop the rot.
Regular Season Record-
Milwaukee Bucks: W-25, L-10
Detroit Pistons: W-16, L-18
Players to watch out for:
Giannis Antetokounmpo – Already a Greek legend, the 24-year-old is having the season of his life. The power forward is racking up some insane numbers, MVP calibre and winning matches for his team. In the last match, he showed what he can do as he ended up with a triple-double, scoring 31 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in the match.
Khris Middleton – The Texas-born star is contributing with good numbers this season. The 27-year-old is averaging 17.8 points per game. Against Detroit Pistons his average is 22 points per game.
Blake Griffin– Without a shadow of any doubt, Blake Griffin is Pistons’ biggest and the most talented star on the court. The 29-year-old is racking up 24.7 points per game this season. It’s going to be a fascinating battle between him and Antetokounmpo.
Andre Drummond – Points may not do justice to what he has been doing for his team. But his average of 17.1 points per game is more than decent. However, it’s his job inside the paint which is indispensable. The 25-year-old is accumulating 15.3 rebounds per game which is the highest in NBA this season.
