Nets at Bucks game preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time
The Brooklyn Nets (37-28, sixth in the Eastern Conference) visit Fiserv Forum on Thursday to face the Milwaukee Bucks (47-18, first in the Eastern Conference) for the fourth and final time this season. Milwaukee currently leads the regular-season series 2-1.
The Nets come into this game on a 3-game winning streak and having won four of its last 10 games. The last three games have been impressive for Brooklyn as they have beaten the Boston Celtics, the Charlotte Hornets, and the Houston Rockets. The thing to watch for the Nets will be how competitive they can be against the Bucks missing four players.
The Bucks come into this game having won 18 of its last 19 games as they have been easily the hottest team in the league. Their lone loss in recent memory was a 133-130 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, but other than that, the Bucks have been playing its best basketball of the season lately. Other than missing Goran Dragic and Wesley Matthews, the Bucks will be at full strength for this contest.
