The loss of Parker is going to really impact the Bucks. Outside of him and the Greek Freak, Milwaukee has just one other player averaging double figures in points. His loss takes a lot away from their offense and their defense isn’t good enough to make up for that loss. Look for the Lakers to find a way to cover tonight on the road due to Milwaukee’s offensive struggles.
