Who’s Playing

Milwaukee @ Denver

Current Records: Milwaukee 11-8; Denver 9-9

What to Know

The Denver Nuggets will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Milwaukee Bucks at 9 p.m. ET Friday at Ball Arena after having had a few days off. Milwaukee will be strutting in after a win while the Nuggets will be stumbling in from a defeat.

It looks like Denver got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They took a hard 119-100 fall against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Denver’s loss came about despite a quality game from power forward Jeff Green, who had 24 points along with three blocks.

As for the Bucks, they can’t say they have nothing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week. They took their matchup against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday by a conclusive 114-93 score. Milwaukee’s power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo did his thing and had 33 points and five assists in addition to seven rebounds.

Denver is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.

Denver simply couldn’t be stopped when the two teams previously met in March, as they easily beat the Bucks on the road 128-97. Will the Nuggets repeat their success, or does Milwaukee have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
