What to Know
After three games on the road, the Milwaukee Bucks are heading back home. They and the Los Angeles Clippers will face off at 8 p.m. ET April 1 at Fiserv Forum without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Keep an eye on the score for this one: both teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet Friday.
It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Milwaukee ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Thursday with a 120-119 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, dropping a double-double on 44 points and 14 rebounds in addition to six assists. The matchup made it Antetokounmpo’s third in a row with at least 30 points.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 135-130. A silver lining for the Clippers was the play of point guard Reggie Jackson, who shot 6-for-9 from downtown and finished with 34 points and seven dimes.
Milwaukee is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Portland Trail Blazers Feb. 14 easily too and instead slipped up with a 122-107. In other words, don’t count Los Angeles out just yet.
