Two sides will face each other in desperate need of a win to uplift their confidence. The competition is between defending champions and a young team – both trying to solidify their positions and make a mark in the eastern conference.
Milwaukee has a better record – 14 consecutive wins against Pistons. But Bucks will be short-handed with injuries to Jrue Holiday and Middleton. Giannis is providing all the firepower Bucks require, but even then, Bucks are fighting for a position in the top 8.
Pistons are not as good as other teams in terms of assists provided. They tend to play more in the paint area depending on Geremy Grant and Saddiq Bey. Grant is Piston’s top scorer this season, while Bey leads in rebounding stats for them.
