Pacers 118, Bucks 111

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Indiana Pacers, 2/12/20 Predictions & Odds

The Indiana Pacers welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to town on Wednesday after losing their last game to the Brooklyn Nets by the score of 106-105. "It's us, again, not finishing the game". IN snapped a six-game losing streak to improve to 32-23.

Playing without superstar Gianis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks weren't the dominant team that's compiled the NBA's best record.

Bledsoe drained a pair of 3-pointers to highlight the Bucks' 13-0 run to begin the fourth quarter, a spurt that regained the team's confidence and put the Kings back on their heels. Malcolm Brogdon is the leader in assists for the Pacers as he has averaged 7.2 assists per game.

Antetokounmpo sat out his second straight game following the birth of his first child, Liam Charles. He averages 30 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. IN just can't get itself on track right now, as the return of Victor Oladipo has sparked a losing streak instead of providing a spark.

And the Pacers' fast start didn't hurt, either.

"We kept fighting", Donte DiVincenzo said after leading the Bucks with 19 points.

The difference this time: IN steadied itself when the Bucks got within 82-71 at the end of the third quarter and opened the fourth with six straight points before Brogdon became the closer.

The Milwaukee Bucks travel to Indianapolis, IN on Wednesday for a game agains the Pacers in a matchup of two teams from the Central Division in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers won 118-111.

Despite the loss, the Bucks enter the All-Star break with an NBA-best 46-8 record. Sabonis was also the leading rebounder for the Pacers as he pulled in 10 boards, with 1 coming offensively.

Oladipo came in averaging 10.8 points, shooting 29.5% from the field and 23.1% on 3s. Domantas Sabonis led the Pacers in points in the game with 23 while shooting 11 of 15 from the field. The Bucks are without the Greek Freak tonight, but I still like them to be able to grab another win at home.

"He's been out more than a year. You can't expect him to be the Victor of old in two weeks", McMillan said.

Bucks: return from the All-Star break February 20 at Detroit.
