In a matchup of titans — Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. ... Dennis Schroder ... — the Bucks were able to come out on top on Wednesday in primetime. Milwaukee’s win over the LeBron-less Lakers ended a three-game losing streak. So the Bucks will try and get another streak going on their West coast trip, this time in Portland. Both Jeff Teague and Bobby Portis are in health and safety protocols and are questionable to play vs. the Blazers.
The Blazers have won four games in a row and are making a play to get into the top 4 in the West. Damian Lillard has jumped up to 12/1 in the MVP race as Portland continues to hit its stride with a healthy lineup. Jusuf Nurkic is back. Norman Powell was acquired before the deadline and has fit in nicely. Powell is averaging 16.3 points in three games for the Blazers.
