The Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers will play on a road trip at Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Thursday evening. After taking Tuesday off, the Bucks and Pacers will play on Wednesday night as the second part of consecutive games.
The Indiana Pacers, who have won 3 of their previous 4 matches, are starting to get hot, and they are going to be keen to continue their strong play after defeating the lowly Jazz 134-118 at home yesterday evening. Leading scorer Aaron Nesmith scored 24 points on 9 of 13 shots from the field, followed by Myles Turner and Bennedict Mathurin with 22 points apiece and Tyrese Haliburton with 16 points and 13 assists. The Pacers scored 38 points in the 2nd period to take the advantage into the half. They then dominated the final period by scoring 33 points to 20 points to pull ahead and end up with a blowout. As a group, they shot 51% from the floor and 13 of 41 within 3-point range.
Milwaukee didn’t have an excellent beginning to the campaign, despite having high hopes. The team’s record was 2-2 at the beginning, losing by double digits to the Hawks and Raptors while they were the favorites. The Bucks have now defeated both New York clubs, most notably defeating the Brooklyn Nets. Milwaukee was paced by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who finished the game with 36 points as well as 12 rebounds. Giannis shoots 54.8% from the field and leads the squad in scoring and rebounds with 26 points per game and 9 rebounds per game. Now that he is not the team’s primary scoring danger, Damian Lillard is relishing his new position in Milwaukee. He averages 22.7 points per game in addition to a team-high 5 assists. Although he makes 2.5 threes per contest, Lillard is the team’s best shooter with a slightly lower percentage of 32.6%
