Milwaukee Bucks vs. Houston Rockets, game to measure strength between conferences. Number one in the East vs. number five in the West. Some say the Bucks are far superior to the Rockets, but the Rockets are here on their own merit. Both teams have proven to be able to play and win against any team this season.
Milwaukee Bucks: Close to the title.
The Bucks are number one in the Eastern Conference at 54-12. In addition, the team has the best overall record of the season. Most recent was the victory against the Boston Celtics 119-112. The Bucks will most likely win the conference title, something the team hasn’t done since 1974. Also, the Bucks’ last NBA championship was in 1971.
The team is scoring an average of 118.7 points per game, 43.62 FG points, 74.5% free throw shots, 13.71 three pointers, 25.95 assists, and 29.57 points per quarter. The defense allows up to 107.4 points, 38.68 FG points and 13.65 three pointers. This is the first game of the season against the Rockets.

Houston Rockets: The Dream in August.
