IND vs MIL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Milwaukee Bucks will be looking to end a two-game losing streak when they host Indiana Pacers in the regular season NBA match at Fiserv Forum, in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Friday morning (IST).
Milwaukee Bucks’ rise this season has gone beyond every possible presumption. Not only they are leading the Eastern Conference, but with a 48-16 record so far in the regular season, possess the best record in NBA across both the conferences.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is certainly the fuel pushing this team forward and into the unchartered territories. Now nicknamed the “Greek Freak”, the 24-year-old is a front runner for the prestigious MVP award.
But there is more to his contribution than just racking up the points for his team. He is one of the best defensive players in NBA this season, and the numbers are there to support this claim.
According to NBA.com, Antetokounmpo is the only player other than Anthony Davis, and Andre Drummond to average at least 1.4 steals and 1.5 blocks per game.
Other than him, the players like Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, and Malcolm Brogdon have contributed significantly, and that’s why Bucks look a champions material.
Together with Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers are the surprise package of the season. In fact, after the All-Star break, they have been very impressive, and have risen to 3rd in the Eastern Conference.
Pacers’ ascendency catches even more eyes if we consider that the team has managed to maintain its standards without their best player. Victor Oladipo is out injured these days, still, Pacers juggernaut continues to roll in the right direction.
Regular Season Record-
Milwaukee Bucks: W-48, L-16
Indiana Pacers: W-42, L-23
Players to watch out for:
Giannis Antetokounmpo –The talented Giannis is now a superstar in the making. He is not just any other player, he is a Greek Freak, and more than a genuine threat to Eastern Conference hopefuls, Golden State Warriors and also to James Harden’s MVP throne. The 24-year-old is not only averaging 27.0 points per game, but he is also in contention for the NBA defensive player of the year.
Khris Middleton – The 27-year-old is averaging 17.4 points per game this season. He is consistent with his contribution, and is more than decent in his decision making and sending the ball into the hoop.
Bojan Bogdanovic – The 29-year-old has taken his game to new heights in the last month or so, in the absence of Victor Oladipo to be precise. The former Miami Heat superstar has averaged 23.1 points per game in the last 10 matches, a giant leap from his career average of 13 points per game. What’s better is that he has shot at more than 50% this season.
Wesley Matthews – He has been pretty impressive since making a trade to Indiana Pacers from New York Knicks in the midseason. The 32-year-old is a good addition to the roster and is a pretty good shooter from beyond the arc.
