Who won the last time they played?

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction
The Bucks are playing some of the best basketball they have played all season and will fancy a win in Utah. The Jazz will struggle if the 3-time Defensive Player of the Year, Rudy Gobert, is not cleared to play the game. The rest of the team will be shorthanded and have to shoulder the burden of containing 2-time MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
And they will fall short. Giannis and co will take care of business and grind out a win against the Jazz.
