NBA Matchup: Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers 

Date: 28th November 2021

Time: 5:00 PM ET

Milwaukee Bucks take on the Indiana Pacers in their second central division battle of the 2021-22 NBA season. The last time these two teams met, Milwaukee held a 119-109 victory in Indiana. Giannis Antetekoumpo and Khris Middleton combined to score 57 points to give Milwaukee the victory. 

Indiana Pacers season so far

The Indiana Pacers have been struggling throughout this season as they have consistently been at the bottom of the eastern conference.  But the team has improved in the past few games. In their last match, the Pacers clinically defeated the Toronto Raptors 114 – 97 with Caris Levert leading the charge. 

Levert scored 19 points and went 3-for-5 from beyond the arc while logging a season-high 34 minutes. Alongside Caris, seven players reached double figures and three collected double-doubles in the win. The Pacers are finally coming together and promise to give the in-form Cream City a tough fight. 

Milwaukee Bucks season so far

Milwaukee has been on a tear with a six-game winning streak. After a slow start, the Bucks have found their rhythm as many players returned after injuries.  Cream City has also been a great three-point shooting team as they rank fourth in the league in 3-point attempts, hoisting over 40 per game, and fifth in 3-point percentage (.367).

 

Giannis Antetekoumpo has continued domination as he scored 24 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists in the victory against Denver. The Greek Freak is third in scoring this season with averages of 27.1 points per game. He is fifth in rebounding (11.7) and seventh in blocks (1.8). Giannis has improved his playmaking with six assists per game. 

 

Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Match Prediction

Like their last meeting, Milwaukee is favourites to win this game. Yes, the Indiana Pacers are getting back in their grove with Caris Levert returning to form but they still don’t have an answer for the Greek Freak. With Giannis being on track to possibly win his third MVP, the Bucks are most likely to win this game.
