What you need to know about the Bucks
The Bucks weren’t horrible in their last game against the Knicks, but just didn’t have what it took to win on Friday. Besides Giannis Antetokounmpo, who can always be counted on for a top performance, Grayson Allen was strong for the Bucks. The backup guard had 22 points on Friday and has had an extended run of play with Donte Divincenzo, who has been out with an ankle injury. Allen’s status for Sunday’s game is in question, however, after he was listed as questionable with an unspecified illness.
Milwaukee catches Washington after an off-day on Saturday, and three of the Bucks’ four wins this season have come on one day of rest. The Bucks were the fourth-best team in the NBA last season with one day off, finishing with a 38-19 record in those games.
What you need to know about the Wizards
Washington finished with a 24-38 record last season, but were 21-18 at home. So far in 2021-22, Washington is 4-1 in the Capital One Arena, and are coming off its biggest win of the year, a 115-87 victory against Memphis. Bradley Beal leads the team in scoring again, averaging 23.5 points per game. Montrezl Harrell has been one of the NBA’s best offseason acquisitions, and he has contributed 18 points per game off the bench.
Washington has been one of the league’s worst defensive teams in the paint, but has done well shutting down opponents in transition. The Wizards have been a better3-point shooting team at home than on the road, but Milwaukee has held opponents to just 29.9 percent from deep when it is the visiting side in 2021. Washington may be able to overcome that, as it has made 61.2 percent of its two-point field goal attempts over the last three games.
