The Toronto Raptors will be hosting Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. Giannis put up a career-high 55-point performance against the Washington Wizards after missing the last game. The Wizards faced a Bucks side without Giannis last time out, and this time they surely felt Giannis at the peak of his powers.
The Bucks cruised to Victory against the Wizards, all thanks to the availability of Giannis and Jrue Holiday. Giannis had a terrific night for the Bucks and will be looking to continue his fine form into this new year. The 2x MVP hit 40-point performances in his last 3 games for the Bucks.
With Giannis on fire, “I want to get in a position … that my game is boring”, said Giannis. The Raptors, do not have too many injuries at the moment. The Raptors, however, have been very inconsistent this season, and unable to establish a winning run in the league.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is fit for the Milwaukee Bucks vs Toronto Raptors game tonight
The Bucks entered this season in a lightning fashion, but have slumped mid-season. The 2x MVP is right in the middle to bolster things for the Bucks. The Bucks fans will be happy to know that Giannis is fit to face the Raptors tonight, and Jrue Holiday is well out of the injury report.
The Bucks need to maintain the same performance to get a winning run going after their win against the Wizards. It is a huge change in play when Giannis is not playing, and it was evident when they lost to the Wizards. Here are the injury reports and expected roster for the Bucks-Raptors game tonight.

The Milwaukee Bucks will be favored to win against the Toronto Raptors
After last night’s game against the Wizards, it is clear to say that Giannis is proving to be the cornerstone for the Bucks. Jrue Holiday returned for the Bucks but was given limited time on the court. In this game, we are favoring the Bucks for the win, especially after a career-high performance from the Greek Freak.
The Raptors will be looking to stop Giannis from getting buckets for the Bucks, however, it will be a tough ask, after looking at his last game against the Wizards. The Bucks with Holiday and Giannis both on the court can cause a whole lot of problems for the Raptors. Let us know who you think is going to win in the comment section below.
