The Bucks are one of the best teams in the NBA this season. And now the Bucks have three wins in a row after the All-Star break. As for the postseason, the Bucks have clinched a playoff spot and that’s the earliest a team has locked down a postseason spot in the last 15 years. Additionally, the team has a 15.5-game lead over Indiana in the Central Division. Also, in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team has 6.5 games ahead of the Raptors for the top spot.

Milwaukee has the best record on 51.9 boards per contest combined with the 5th record of 26.2 assists per game.

The Raptors are on a great run this season. Moreover, they have now won 17 of their last 18 games. Additionally, they recorded their biggest margin of victory of the year by trouncing Indiana at home. Therefore, the Raptors now have a 2.5-game lead over Boston in the Atlantic Division.

Both teams are top class and are favourites for the championship this season.
The Raptors will be without Powell and Gasol at this stage but there is a ton of depth in their rotation. However, Antetokounmpo is in top form and that will be a challenge for the Raptors. Therefore, I will go with the Bucks to win this one a tight contest.
