Who’s Playing

Oklahoma City @ Milwaukee

Current Records: Oklahoma City 6-8; Milwaukee 7-8

What to Know

The Milwaukee Bucks’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 19 at Fiserv Forum. The Bucks will be hoping to build upon the 98-85 win they picked up against Oklahoma City when they previously played in February.

Milwaukee was able to grind out a solid win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, winning 109-102. Power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo took over for Milwaukee, finishing with 47 points (a whopping 43% of their total) along with nine boards.

Meanwhile, OKC strolled past the Houston Rockets with points to spare on Wednesday, taking the contest 101-89. Oklahoma City’s small forward Luguentz Dort looked sharp as he had 34 points in addition to eight rebounds.

Milwaukee is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12.5-point margin of victory. Now might not be the best time to take the Bucks against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.

Their wins bumped Milwaukee to 7-8 and the Thunder to 6-8. On Wednesday Milwaukee relied heavily on Antetokounmpo, who had 47 points in addition to nine boards. It will be up to Oklahoma City’s defense to limit his damage on Friday.
