Golden State Warriors vs Milwaukee Bucks NBA Preview
The Golden State Warriors have upped their preparation for the massive upcoming battle against the Milwaukee Bucks in what promises to be an enticing matchup on the 13th March. This game comes in a crucial period as the Western Conference playoff spots start to take shape. The two teams have come up against each other previously in the season with the Bucks coming away 118 – 99 winners.
The Warriors are once again having an extremely strong year with an overall season record of 44 wins and 22 losses. They currently sit 2nd in the Pacific Division and look certain to secure a playoff spot. The Bucks on the other hand are having just as impressive a season boasting a regular-season record of 42 wins and 25 losses. These two teams have been juggernauts all season, and that’s what makes this game so exciting for basketball fans around the world.
Golden State Warriors Remain Dangerous
There is a sense of frustration growing around the Warriors as one of the toughest stretches of the season begins to take effect. The team are currently 2-8 in their last 10 matches displaying more complacency than both them and the coaching staff would have expected.
A lot of their struggles can be put down to the absence of Draymond Green, but with his comeback on the horizon the Warriors will feel confident should they secure a playoff spot. Players like Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins need to get back to top form if the Warriors intend on being real contenders this season.
Could the Bucks Go Back-to-Back?
Many people would argue that the top teams in the NBA this season have been the Suns, the Heat, or even the Grizzlies. While these teams have been performing admirably and are putting themselves in strong positions to compete for the Championship, the current holders should not be overlooked.
The Bucks undoubtedly have one of the toughest schedules remaining out of most NBA teams, but that should deter them from their ambitions this season. Giannis is in sparkling form and believes that playing lots of difficult games now will make them much better for the remainder of the season.
Overall, this matchup promises to be one of the highlights of the NBA calendar this season. The Bucks look slightly stronger but will be weary against a wounded lion in the Warriors
