Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks Game Preview

When: 7:00pm MT

Where: Energy Solutions Arena, Salt Lake City, UT

TV: Root Sports / NBA League Pass

Radio: 1280 The Zone / NBA Gametime App / Official Utah Jazz App

Tonight the tanky Bucks roll into town.  The Bucks last played in L.A., where they went in and beat down the Lakers by 15.

The bad guys: Brewhoop (Actually, they're pretty cool)

What to watch for:

  • LARRY SANDERS! is back. Against the Lakers he managed 7pts, 11rbd, 5ast (!), and 4bs. Watch the Sanders/Favors matchup.
  • Brandon Knight went HAM on the Lakers for 37 points. Don't expect that again, but watch the Knight/Burke matchup.
  • Caron Butler is kinda like their Richard Jefferson. Like, when they used to have Richard Jefferson.
  • This game will likely feel similar to the Bobcats game. Slow grind.
  • No John Henson for the Bucks
  • The bench battle: Mayo/Burks
  • Ilyasova could be a problem for Marvin in the starting lineup.
  • This is our first chance to see the Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo. He will guard Gordon Hayward
  • Drink every time Boler/Harpring mention how difficult it is to say Giannis Antetokounmpo
  • Drink every time they mess up Alec (Alex) and Burke/ Burks (Don't do this. You will surely perish).
  • Caron Butler vs Richard Jefferson. Pure, unadulterated, delicious vetzzzz ecstasy.

Oh, yeah...
