Thursday night’s clash between the Warriors and the Bucks is the first of a two-game series of the season, with the second game scheduled for a couple of months later on March 13.
The defending champions come into this game on the back of a slump, having lost four of their last five, including two in a row against the Hornets in Charlotte.
In the midst of this spiral, his only win was an impressive one against the Nets in Brooklyn, where reigning Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo packed the stat sheet with 31 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in just 27 minutes of action.
This Milwaukee franchise is no stranger to tough times over the course of a season, starting 6-8 in the first 14 games. They bounced back from that rocky start, when they were marred by COVID-19-related injuries and forced absences, by winning 19 of their next 24 games.
The question is will the Bucks revival come against the Warriors?
For the Warriors, this matchup is the first in a tough two-game stretch over the course of 24 hours. After playing the Bucks on Thursday, they have a quick turnaround and face the Bulls in Chicago on Friday.
Halfway through the season, with the return of veteran shooting guard Klay Thompson, who could play the first of these games in Milwaukee, how will the Dubs fare in this test?
The status of the team’s veteran striker Draymond Green is in doubt, given that he is up to date and has not traveled with the team to Memphis. According to the report from The Undefeated’s Marc Spears, he could return later this week, but it’s unclear which game, Milwaukee or Chicago, he’ll rejoin the lineup.
