The Bucks took care of business Tuesday night, as they destroyed the Washington Wizards, 126-113. And the Bucks did that with Giannis Antentokounmpo playing in just 10 minutes and Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe both sitting out the contest. The reigning NBA MVP was ejected from the game in the second quarter after headbutting Wizards forward Mo Wagner. Antetokoumpo could get penalized with a suspension for that action, but whichever the case may be, it appears that the Bucks are going to keep him from playing a meaningless game against the Grizzlies anyway. Brook Lopez led the Bucks in the wino over the Wizards with 24 points. As a team, Milwaukee shot 18 of 38 from deep and recorded 10 more rebounds than Washington, 53-44.
The Bucks, who are the top rebounding team in the Bubble, are 2-2 against the spread in their last four games.
Betting on the Memphis Grizzlies (odds)
Regular Season Record: 33-39
This is Bucks game is one that the Grizzlies need to win to ensure themselves of a spot in the play-in game. This is after they lost to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday, 122-107. Ja Morant paced the Grizzlies against the Celtics with his 26 points and 13 assists in 42 minutes, while Jonas Valanciunas and Dillon Brooks each had 14 points. Memphis’ offense was too inefficient to beat Boston, as the Grizzlies made only 39.3 percent of their shots and went 7 for 29 from long distance. However, they made up for some of their misses by going 30 of 38 on their free throws, thanks in large part to Morant’s 11-of-15 line from the charity stripe. The Grizzlies must be wishing that they’d have the same outside touch this Thursday as the one they’ve shown in their 127-114 home loss to the Bucks last December in which they sank 20 3-pointers on 49 attempts. However, Jaren Jackson Jr., who scored 43 points and hit nine threes in that game, is out with a torn meniscus.
The under is 3-0 in the Grizzlies’ last three games.
The Grizzlies win, 110-109.
