Milwaukee Bucks 2022-23 record prediction: December

The season is still very young in December but there will be no shortage of marquee matchups, they have matchups against the Los Angeles Lakers on ESPN December 2nd, go to Dallas to face Luka and co. for the final time a week later, December 9th on ESPN. Then a trip to Houston before returning home to face off against the NBA Champs Golden state Warriors in Milwaukee which you could see on TNT.

Following that busy stretch, a trip to Memphis to play Ja Morant, notorious Bucks killer Jaren Jackson Jr., back home for one game vs the Utah Jazz, then a five game road trip. Starting in New Orleans, back up to Cleveland, off to Brooklyn for their first game at the Nets.

The Milwaukee Bucks get a Christmas day matchup with the Boston Celtics. Revenge will surely be on the minds of Giannis and the Bucks as they try to show the world they are the class of the Eastern Conference.

The final game of the longest road trip of the year for the Bucks ends in Chicago, watch for Grayson Allen to randomly drop twenty plus points in Chicago like he did in the playoffs which will surely infuriate all of Bulls nation. They wrap up the month against the Minnesota Timberwolves at home December 30th.

Tough back to back games against the Warriors and Grizzlies, along with a five game road trip makes for a tough month, I’m predicting a 8-7 month for the Bucks.

Milwaukee Bucks 2022-23 record prediction: January

There is a point in every major sports season where many would refer to them as the grind, the dog days. For the NBA that happens in January and a little in February, just before the All-Star break. This is also the time that the Milwaukee Bucks will potentially be thinking about Joe Ingles getting his first minutes in a Bucks uniform.

So let’s break down the month of January, starting with back to back home games against the Washington Wizards and former Wisconsin star Johnny Davis, quickly one game up in Toronto, then back home vs the Hornets before a four game road trip.

First in New York to face the Knicks, go to Atlanta January 11th, immediately off to Miami to play the Heat January 12th. A day of rest before facing off against the Heat again on the 14th. A day off before their third back to back of the month, against the Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors. Also the second time in the month that the Raptors get the bucks on the back end of a back to back, don’t be surprised if bucks rest a starter or two in one if not both of those games.

Then at Cleveland and Detroit before returning back home to face the Denver Nuggets with back to back MVP Nikola Jokic. After facing the Nuggets one game on the road against the Pacers again before wrapping the month up at home vs the Pelicans and Hornets, January 29th and 31st.

Three separate back to backs, a four game road trip in the month that for most teams in the toughest mental grind of the season, I’m predicting a record of 9-7.
