Milwaukee is coming off a big win over Memphis, with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Ja Morant having an epic duel:
In their last game Milwaukee got 33 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists from Antetokounmpo who has been playing at an MVP level all season on both ends of the floor.
This season Antetokounmpo has elevated his game again, after two straight MVP seasons scoring efficiently and incrementally doing more and more every game for his team. Most notably, shooting 71.6% from the free-throw line on a career-high 10.7 attempts per game.
As a team, Milwaukee is the No. 4 offense scoring 112.0 points per game and the No. 14 defense, giving up 108.1 points to their opponents.
On the other side, Chicago is the No. 9 offense scoring 111.2 points per game and the No. 16 defense overall giving up 108.8 points to their opponents.
They have navigated the season through tough injuries and a thin roster overall to be one of (and at times the best) teams in the Eastern Conference. This will be a huge game and opportunity for Chicago to show they can play with anyone in the conference, regardless of the circumstances.
