Eastern Conference powerhouse Bucks (55-16) will face the Wizards (24-46) in the last match tonight. Here we look at the Preview and TV Schedule for the game.
As we are in the final week of seeding games, playoffs berths in the East are sorted and only 8th seed in the West is yet to be decided. Nine teams from the East participated in the bubble restart, Wizards will be the only one going home early having had an abysmal NBA Bubble.
Milwaukee Bucks were leading before the restart and they have ended in a similar way, securing top spot in the East. Same goes for Wizards, they entered with the worst record and are going home with the tag of the ‘worst team in the bubble’.
Bucks restart was not what they expected. They have managed only two wins in six games in Orlando. Giannis and co. haven’t really put their foot on the throttle but expect them to do that when the playoffs begin.
Wizards have lost all their 6 games in the Bubble and would be hoping for a strong showing in the last two seeding games, so as to return home with some pride.

Bucks vs Wizards Preview
Today’s game won’t really have any bearing on the Eastern conference standings but both teams will want to get a ‘W’. For Bucks its about the momentum going into the playoffs and for the Wizards its about giving some belief to their players before they head into the off season.
Bucks generally struggle without Giannis, and with him listed as ‘questionable’ for this game, the game could be a closely contested one.
Bucks will play Orlando Magic in the first round which should not be difficult. Magic has also struggled in the bubble restart.
Bucks Star Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading his side from the front, the greek freak is averaging 29.8 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 5.7 assists in 2019-20 season. His performance in the bubble has been impressive despite his team losing most of the time.
Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant have done a good job in Orlando but they have been unable to get their side a win. Bucks will go as favorites in the game as they are the overall stronger side.
However, Wizards would be hoping for a tight-knit team effort to cause some issues to the Bucks machine.
