The Utah Jazz sorely need to bounce back after two ugly losses earlier this week. They’ll have to do it against one of the best teams in the NBA and perennial MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo. Playing consistently from game to game or even within a game has been an early season struggle for the Jazz so it will be extremely important for the team not to become lackadaisical at any point, even if they do find themselves playing well early on. The Jazz have lost the last three trips to Milwaukee so they will be attempting to break that streak tonight.
The Milwaukee Bucks have had their own early season consistency struggles with big losses to the Miami Heat and New York Knicks. However, they are one Celtics buzzer beater away from being 6-2 and just starting to look like the juggernaut that was predicted by many to represent the East in the Finals this season with their last three games being big victories on the road. With the addition of Jrue Holiday during the offseason they have had to take some time to gel but this team has no obvious weaknesses and is deep at almost every position.
Let’s hope for some entertaining Friday night basketball between these two teams and an ending just like the infamous one below......
