NBA Matchup: Milwaukee Bucks vs Charlotte Hornets

Date: 1st December 2021

Time: 8:00  p.m. ET.

The Milwaukee Bucks take on the Charlotte Hornets in an exciting Eastern Conference matchup at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Both teams are in the upper echelon of the East and will want to solidify their position in the playoff race. 

Milwaukee Bucks season so far

The Milwaukee Bucks return home on a seven-game winning after defeating Indiana Pacers by 18 points. The Bucks are currently ranked fourth in the east and are back as contenders after a below-par start. The team was struggling at the start of the 2021-22 regular season, but now the team is functioning like a well-oiled machine. Cream City has also acquired former Allstar, Demarcus Cousins, who will be an important vocal leader in the locker room. 

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on a tear this season with averages of 27.0 PPG, 11.8 RPG with 5.9 assists. The Greek Freak is third in the NBA 2021-22 season and could be his third MVP. Giannis is also third in chasing for a scoring title as he is currently third behind Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. 

 

Charlotte Hornets season so far

The Charlotte Hornets are coming to Milwaukee after losing to the red-hot Chicago Bulls 133-119 as the Chicago Big 3 each scored over 25 points each. The 2021-22 NBA season has seen massive improvement for the Hornets.

The roster is shaping into a well-oiled machine as players have started understanding and embracing their roles on the court. Charlotte has pulled many upsets as they defeated the Golden State Warriors, who have the best record in the league and the Brooklyn Nets, the eastern conference top seed. 

 

The Hornets are a force to reckon with, led by the 2020 rookie of the year, Lamelo Ball, who has taken another leap this season. With averages of 19.3 points and 8.2 assists on close to 50/40/90 shooting, Lamelo Ball is living up to the hype and has emerged as one of the best young players in the NBA. 

Milwaukee Bucks vs Charlotte Hornets Match Prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks are clear favourites to win against the Charlotte Hornets and continue their seven-game winning streak. The Bucks, after a shaky start, are back to defend their championship with the Greek Freak stitching up another MVP season. Historically speaking, this Bucks-Hornets fixture has been dominated by Milwaukee, with 61 wins over 57 Hornet wins.
