The Milwaukee Bucks road trip finally comes to an end on Wednesday night in Atlanta. If it seems like the Bucks have been on the road a lot...they have. Just one home game since November 2nd, a grueling stretch. Lots of positive signs though with the team faring well away from the Fiserv Forum. Milwaukee has lost only once this month and is 10-3 on the year, a game back of Boston for best record in the Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee boasts the 2nd-best offense in the NBA, scoring over 118 points per game. Atlanta scores 106 by comparison and is giving up 115 which is a quick summary of why the Hawks are 4-9 on the season. Giannis Antetokounmpo, fresh off a 33-point effort against Chicago, has to be licking his chops when evaluating Atlanta's porous defense. Milwaukee's D was shaky early on but they now rank 13th in the league in points allowed, vaulting into the top half of the NBA. Milwaukee has given up 83 and 101 points, respectively, in their past two games.
