Dallas keeps the place in the playoffs
The Mavericks approach their matchup with Milwaukee 6th in the Western Conference with a 15-15 balance. Could Dallas have gone any better over the first 30 games? Probably, but lately, the team has been forced to do without a number of leaders, including Luka Doncic. Clearly, with a trimmed roster, the Mavs' potential is limited.
In the previous game, Dallas took revenge on Minnesota for their recent road loss. The Texans' most productive player was Jalen Brunson with 28 points (114-102).
Milwaukee confidently sails through the championship
The Bucks have 20 wins and 13 losses in 33 games since the championship began. Mike Budenholzer's team ranks third in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee also lost few of the previous games in the absence of several key players, but that's hardly a problem for the Bucks. The team has built up a great lead at the start of the championship.
In the last game, Milwaukee confidently handled Houston at home, 126-106. Jrue Holiday scored 24 points. Khris Middleton had 23 points for his performance.
- Dallas: Reggie Bullock, Trey Burke, Luka Doncic, Josh Green, Maxi Kleber, Willie Cauley-Stein, Tim Hardaway will not play. Kristaps Porzingis is questionable;
- Milwaukee: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Donte DiVincenzo, Brook Lopez, Bobby Portis will not play. Rodney Hood is questionable.
The opponents played each other 3 times in the last 2 seasons, with Dallas victorious on 2 occasions.
