Milwaukee Bucks vs Charlotte Hornets Match Prediction

The availability of several key Milwaukee Bucks players impacts the result of this game. One thing we do know at this point, Holiday will be out with an ankle injury. The loss of Holiday completely changes the dynamic of the Bucks team. Missing several key pieces, Milwaukee was a few bad possessions away from winning the game on Saturday. The Hornets have been heavily dependent on the three-ball of late.

In the last two games, Buzz City has hit 40 3 pointers. Milwaukee has a championship coaching staff and will adjust to the bodies they have and don’t have and will adjust to the Hornets offensive scheme. The Greek Freak will continue to dominate and can score 35+ again. Hence the Milwaukee Bucks are favourites to win.
