Who’s Playing

Oklahoma City @ Milwaukee

Current Records: Oklahoma City 11-17; Milwaukee 16-13

What to Know

The Milwaukee Bucks are getting right back to it as they host the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 19 at Fiserv Forum. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

The point spread favored the Bucks on Thursday, but luck did not. They took a hard 110-96 fall against the Toronto Raptors. The top scorer for Milwaukee was power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (23 points). That makes it five consecutive games in which Giannis Antetokounmpo has had at least ten rebounds.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City came up short against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, falling 122-113. Small forward Luguentz Dort had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 11 points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 28 minutes on the court.

This next contest looks promising for Milwaukee, who are favored by a full 10 points. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.

The losses put Milwaukee at 16-13 and Oklahoma City at 11-17. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Bucks come into the game boasting the second highest field goal percentage in the league at 48.80%. Less enviably, the Thunder are fifth worst in the league in points per game, with only 107.7 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Oklahoma City.
