Milwaukee Bucks Form
The Bucks have endured a turbulent start to the season, which has seen them win twice and lose twice.
They are currently sitting in fifth in the Eastern Conference and will have to improve immeasurably if they are to get a result against the Raptors.
Most of the talk before this game has centred around Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is being heavily linked with a move to the Raptors in 2021.
Any move would come as a massive blow for the Bucks, as he is undoubtedly the star in their side. The Bucks will come into this fixture off the back of a defeat against the Celtics last time out.
They were beaten 116-105 in the end, but there were some positives to come out of the defeat. Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 26 points in that defeat, while Antetokounmpo scored 22.
Their biggest problem in this game was the fact that only one other player scored more than ten points. That will be something that needs to change should they have aspirations of a strong season.
Toronto Raptors Form
The Toronto Raptors meanwhile still look like they could be a massive threat this season. The form of Pascal Siakam has ensured that the void left by Kawhi Leonard has been covered to a degree.
He has already scored more than 30 points in three games this season, and his performance in their most recent win over Detroit was mesmeric.
If he can sustain this level of performance, then they could achieve something remarkable this season, but of course, bigger tests still lie ahead.
The Raptors have won three of their last four, with their 125-113 success over the Pistons being their last time on the court.
As well as Siakam’s 30 points, there was also 20 points for Kyle Lowry and 19 points apiece for Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell.
If they can match that performance level against the Bucks, then it should be another win for the Raptors.
