Bucks struggle in second half

Milwaukee was outscored 74-47 Wednesday night in a 116-105 defeat at Boston to drop to 2-2 overall and 1-1 on the road. Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting including 3-of-6 from 3-point range plus 3-of-3 at the free throw line. He also tallied six rebounds and three assists.

Brook Lopez added 10 points, three caroms, two assists and two blocked shots.

Magic bottle up Knicks

Orlando secured a 95-83 home victory Wednesday night over New York to improve to 2-2 overall and 2-0 at home. Nikola Vucevic paced the Magic with 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting including 2-of-4 from 3-point range plus 3-of-4 at the charity stripe. He also notched 13 rebounds and four assists. Aaron Gordon had 15 points and 11 boards. Evan Fournier tallied 14 points, three caroms and three dimes. Jonathan Isaac accounted for 10 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three blocked shots.

NBA Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Bucks are 6-0 ATS in their last six Friday games. Milwaukee is 1-6 ATS in its last seven games versus the Eastern Conference.

Orlando

The Magic are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games. Orlando is 1-5 ATS in its last six games overall.

Prediction:

Milwaukee was porous in the second half last game, but this is still largely the same team that was best in the Eastern Conference last season. There aren't going to be a lot of duds along the way. I trust Giannis and company to bounce back tonight against an Orlando team that was good last game, but the Bucks are in an eintirely different ballpark than what they faced against the Knicks.
