Milwaukee Bucks @ Cleveland Cavaliers

For the second time in three games, the Bucks will face the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This game will present the Bucks with a great opportunity to showcase what they’re made of. The game will be featured on TNT, the first nationally broadcasted regular season game the Bucks have played since 2013-14.

Much like their game this Saturday, the Bucks will need great play out of Antetokounmpo and Monroe if they’re going to find success.

There will also be an even smaller margin for error, as the Cavs are among the league’s best at home. Cutting down on turnovers, taking smart shots, moving the ball, and playing solid team defense are all must-dos if the Bucks are going to compete.

The real key to this game will be improving on their rebounding. The Cavs are currently seventh in the league in rebounding, while the Bucks are last.

If the Bucks are going to contain the Cavs offense, they’ll need to crash the boards and prevent as many second chance points as possible.

Winning in Cleveland may prove difficult, but the Bucks should be able to compete in this game.
