Venue – Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee
HOU vs MIL DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Heavyweights of their respective conference face off as Houston Rockets travel to face Milwaukee Bucks in the regular season of the NBA on Tuesday.
Houston Rockets are one those sides who has not learnt to give up. They were the team to beat the Golden State Warriors last year, and have got yet another shot at the title. With James Harden performing at an unbelievable level, he will have to shoulder the responsibility of being the leader of the franchise and prove that he is a top-five NBA player. This team is hungry for success and will be looking to make some statements along the way.
Meanwhile, Milwaukee Bucks are the team with the best record of anyone in the entire NBA, and for some good reason. They have been thoroughly dominant in the Eastern Conference, and much of that has been the freedom bestowed on the Greek Freak by coach Mike Budenholzer. Giannis has been in sublime form and hardly has put a foot wrong. He has risen his game whenever the occasion demanded and will be irking to showcase his abilities in the playoffs.
