Wolves at Bucks
7:00 pm CST
Welp. Not gonna write much tactics or strategy about this one. I doubt most of you ever read it, and certainly it seems ludicrous to do so for this game. The Wolves head to Milwaukee severely short-handed. Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins remain out, as does Jake Layman. Jeff Teague is listed as doubtful after his hard fall against the Nets. Treveon Graham and Noah Vonleh are questionable. It leaves the Wolves with, well, Gorgui Dieng, Robert Covington, and a pretty random assortment of back ups and G-League guys heading into a game against the best team in the NBA.
The Bucks sit at 30-5 on the season, and revolve around their MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. It’s hard to see how the Wolves slow him down; In the first matchup between these teams he cruised to a 34-15-6 night in 27 minutes in a 30 point Bucks blowout. It would be nice if this one were a bit more competitive, but I won’t hold my breath.
I expect to see more Naz Reid tonight, and Jaylen Nowell has been called up from Iowa and will be available as well. So I suppose that’s a reason to watch this one.
Our friends are over at Brew Hoop with the Bucks news. Be excellent.
Do your thing.
