So Orlando will be aiming to bounce back in this game. On a positive note, they had the in-form Nikola Vucevic as their power forward scored 32 points in the loss in game 2.

The Magic won game one. But their offensive line was not at the needed level in game 2. Moreover, the Bucks are slowly gaining their form and managed to keep them under 100 in that game. Milwaukee has momentum heading into this game. And that should help them carry the way to a 2-1 series lead behind a big game from the Greek Freak.
