The Milwaukee Bucks will put their 13-game winning streak on the line in a marquee matchup with the LA Clippers at Fiserv Forum on Friday.
Tabbed by many in preseason as a potential Finals preview, the Milwaukee Bucks and LA Clippers’ early season play at the quarter point of the campaign has done nothing to suggest that billing isn’t fitting for Friday’s game between the two teams.
The Los Angeles Lakers would certainly have something to say about that in the Western Conference side of the discussion, but the Clippers have largely been as good as advertised, and the Bucks have played at a level that makes it clear they should be viewed as the clear frontrunner in the East.
What makes Friday’s fixture all the more enticing, though is the fact that the two teams come into this game at something very close to top form.
The Bucks, of course, have won 13 consecutive games and will start to dream about challenging their franchise record streak if they can successfully navigate past the Clippers, but LA can also claim to be a similarly impressive 9-1 over their last 10 games.
That sets the backdrop perfectly for a game where two true heavyweights will face off in a matchup including multiple superstar players.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at three things worth watching out for as the Bucks and Clippers get set for a tantalizing Friday night clash.
