In Saturday’s nightcap, Milwaukee looks to continue its momentum after a strong comeback win over the Miami Heat Thursday. After resting their stars against Brooklyn earlier in the week, the Bucks came out sluggish before piling on the points in the 2nd half. Another game in the books for injured guards Pat Connaughton and Eric Bledsoe is showing benefits defensively for the conference’s top seed. Dallas on the other hand is trying to find ways to close out games on a strong note. They dropped their last outing agains the Clippers and have faded late in games since arriving in the bubble. The Mavericks have no issues putting up points, but their defense could improve. The Bucks are typically stout defensively and inconsistent offensively, so this matchup will prove key for both teams to play their best basketball.
Pick: Dallas Mavericks +5.5 and Over 232
