  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, United States
  • When: Thursday, February 9, 10 pm ET

The Lakers and the Bucks won two of the past three titles, and when they meet, the hype is massive. But to be honest, the reason for such massive attention isn’t only those titles. Two epic players, LeBron on one and Giannis on the other side, are maybe the most dominant guys in the league and arguably the most famous faces in the league. Regarding results, the Bucks are in much better shape, while the Lakers are trying to gain some consistency. This might be a perfect chance for them to start a winning streak.

LA Lakers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Preview

LA Lakers

The Lakers are in the lower half of the Western Conference but not too far from the play-in tournament. Less than a couple of games divides them and the play-in zone, and a few more are between them and the playoffs. According to LeBron, this team still didn’t give up on winning the title, and the LAL will make certain pushes in the last days of the trade deadline to acquire more stars.

James is after Kareem’s all-time scoring record, and LBJ will surely surpass it, given the quality of his performances this year. He averages 30 points per game with 50.5% FG and currently has the best point/minute ratio in his career. 

Yet, the problem for the Lakers is Anthony Davis’ constant injury trouble because AD misses a lot of games, and when looking overall, he is more important to the team than James. So far this year, the No.3 delivers 27.1 buckets each night with 12 boards, plus an indispensable impact on the defensive side of the ball. 

Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis is on fire these days, and so are the Bucks, who now have 37 wins and 17 losses, sitting one game behind the Boston Celtics, who are the top seed in the NBA. Also, Mike Budenholzer’s crew is riding an eight-win streak coming into this matchup.

Giannis was the player of the last week, leading his team to three wins while posting 41 points per game, with 17.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists. It seems that the Greek Freak hit the turbo and won’t stop until the end of the campaign. 

A big plus for the Bucks is Khris Middleton’s comeback. Even though he still isn’t at the needed level, Middleton’s presence will become essential for the former champs. The small forward averages 12.9 points in 14 games this year, but in less than 21 minutes.

The Bucks are in one hell of a form, and despite the Lakers having the home-court edge, we don’t believe they have the power to stop the rampaging guests.
