The Milwaukee Bucks have the pleasure of playing on Christmas and New Year’s Day this season. There are only four games across the entire NBA tonight with the Bucks hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves being one of them. Milwaukee was on the road in Philadelphia for a Christmas matinee and that didn’t go so well. They trailed by a large margin for most of the game in their worst loss of the season. Minnesota enters the game at 12-20 on the season out of the Western Conference.
The NBA guarantees two games against every team. The Bucks and Timberwolves have played each other once already, back on November 4th. The Bucks won that game 134-106 with much of that distance being created in the second half. Minnesota was 4-1 entering that game, at home, before the Bucks caught fire and they lost by 28. They will have none of those advantages Wednesday night.
