The Milwaukee Bucks hit the road on Saturday for a game against the Orlando Magic, which could prove to be a first round playoff preview.

After picking up a convincing win against the rival Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday at Fiserv Forum, the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks hit the road again.

The Bucks are facing a quick, one game trip to the Sunshine State for their fourth and final meeting of the season with the Orlando Magic.

To this point in the campaign, like it has been with most other opponents, contests against the Magic have proved to be routine for the Bucks. Milwaukee has won all three previous encounters, and is a combined +52 across the season series so far.

The aim for Mike Budenholzer’s team will be to continue on in that same vein, particularly given the Magic have struggled to a sorry 2-8 record over their last 10 outings, including a loss to the Knicks on Thursday.

If the Bucks avoid any slip-ups on Saturday, they’ll secure their 45th win of the campaign as they continue to rack up wins at a historic regular season rate.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at three elements that could be worth closer attention heading into Saturday’s matchup.
