Milwaukee's road trip takes them from New England down the Atlantic seaboard to Orlando. Both teams are 2-2 on the season with Milwaukee losing its last game at Boston in front of a national tv audience. Milwaukee had a 16-point lead at halftime in Beantown but could not hold it. The Celtics scored 74 points in the second half to win 116-105.
Milwaukee is fourth in the league in points scored early this season but they are also in the bottom ten in points allowed. Until the defense tightens up, the team will struggle to make a run at 60 wins again like last season. Orlando is a great opponent to fix defensive problems as they come into the contest last in the NBA in scoring offense.
