At the midpoint of the season, we have a clearer picture of the teams that are most likely to be left standing at the end of the season.
While not many would have had the Warriors as championship contenders before the season started, they certainly have them among the leaders now.
Milwaukee has faced adversity this season after claiming its first championship in 50 years. The Bucks have had seasons at various stages this season without key players in Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Milwaukee has lost two in a row coming into this game, but The Greek Freak has been playing at an MVP level once again this season, averaging 28.4 points, 11.4 rebounds and 6.0 assists so far this season. The Warriors got Klay Thompson back, albeit on a minute restriction (not shot restriction!), while the Bucks will miss Holiday for this game, but could this be a preview of the 2022 NBA Finals? ?
