How will both teams lineup?
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been leading the way for the Milwaukee Bucks. They are among the top contenders to win the NBA title this year. Khris Middleton was an absolute soldier agains the Heat. He ended the game with 33 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists.
Now, while the Bucks have been pretty solid when it comes to defense, the offense heavy Mavs, would stretch them to the limit. Giannis should be up to the task, but defensively the entire Bucks unit will have to come to the party tonight.
K-Midd is a bucket.

Predicted line up: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez, Wesley Matthews, Khris Middleton
The Mavericks would want to win their last few seeding games in order to get off from the 7th spot and avoid a first round match up against the Clippers.
Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis make an enviable duo, however, the Mavs haven’t really rectified their defensive troubles. An offensive game could help you win a few games against the top sides, but without a sound defense, winning a playoff series could be a bit of pickle.
Tonight’s game though could be decided on how Doncic behaves on the offensive front. If he is able to get into his groove, the Mva could very well upset the Bucks.
