The defending champion Bucks seem to be rounding into form at just the right time of the season.
The team is currently second in the East behind the Heat and has been bolstered by the phenomenal play of MVP contender Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 30.1 points, 11.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game.
Following a huge overtime win against the Nets, Antetokounmpo was rested by the Bucks for the team’s game against the Clippers on Friday with a sore knee. That was the third game in the past seven that Antetokounmpo has missed, though he played in all three games of the Bucks’ recent road swing.
Will Giannis be able to suit up against the Mavericks and help the Bucks chase that No. 1 seed?
