What to expect from both the teams heading into the restart?
The Bucks seemed unstoppable with Giannis leading them from the front this season. The reigning MVP picked up right from where he left it against Spurs, who had no answer to his dominance.
The Kings sit a paltry 11th in the western conference standings. They remain 3.5 games behind Grizzlies and will tough competition from the Pelicans and Blazers to make it through.
With leading star Fox out, the team will look upto Bjelica to deliver for them.
The Kings will have to keep Giannis at bay, if they want to get a win under their belt going to the seeding games. They are desperately looking for anything to go their way so as to build some momentum for those crucial seeding games.
However, at this point, with all the injuries and their form, it seems unlikely that they will make it to the playoffs.
