The Milwaukee Bucks face a tough test when they visit the surging Portland Trail Blazers in what should be a fun to watch game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had his second triple-double this season with 26 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the Bucks to an incredible 144-109 win against the Kings on Sunday. Milwaukee set a season-high for points in a game as well as a franchise record with 22 3-pointers made.
Balance on offense was key for the Bucks, Antetokounmpo and seven other players scored in double figures, Eric Bledsoe had 17, Ersan Ilyasova 15, Malcolm Brogdon and Pat Connaughton each finished with 13, Tony Snell and Khris Middleton each added 12 and John Henson 10.
The Bucks are averaging 121.9 points per game (2nd in the NBA), they grab 54.4 rebounds per game (1st), dish out 26.4 assists per game (2nd) and allow 106.1 points per game (5th). Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks with 26.1 points and 13.9 rebounds, Khris Middleton is averaging 19.2 points and a team-best 1.4 steals and Eric Bledsoe is averaging 13.6 points and a team-best 6.2 assists.
Portland Trail Blazers
Jusuf Nurkic finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds to help the Trail Blazers get a dominant 111-81 win against the Timberwolves last Sunday. Damian Lillard had 18 points, five rebounds and five assists and Meyers Leonard added a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds off the bench. The Portland reserves outscored Minnesota's 44-23. The Trail Blazers outrebounded the Timberwolves 66-38 and outscored them 52-40 in the paint.
The Trail Blazers are averaging 117.2 points per game (7th in the NBA), they grab 51.9 rebounds per game (2nd), dish out 20.2 assists per game (28th) and allow 107.8 points per game (6th). Damian Lillard leads the Trail Blazers with 28.1 points, 5.7 assists and 0.9 steals, CJ McCollum is averaging 18.9 points per game and Jusuf Nurkic adds 15.3 points and a team-best 10.1 rebounds.
The Over is:
21-6 in Milwaukee's last 27 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game
7-2 in Milwaukee's last nine games following an ATS win
17-5 in Milwaukee's last 22 games after scoring more than 125 points in their previous game
16-5 in Milwaukee's last 21 road games
16-5 in Milwaukee's last 21 games following a straight up win
19-7 in Milwaukee's last 26 games playing on one days rest
6-1 in Portland's last seven games following a straight up win of more than 10 points
5-1 in Portland's last six games against a team with a winning straight up record
11-3 in Portland's last 14 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600
19-7 in Portland's last 26 home games against a team with a road winning percentage above .600
This is a high total but both teams are loaded with talented scorers, these are two explosive offenses and this can be a track meet because of the fast pace that these players can set.
