Cavaliers versus Bucks as NBA Season Winds Down

January 13th, 2020 NBA Basketball

As the NBA Season winds down, and teams not are shooting at their best pace, attempting to help their teams to get to the Playoffs for 2015. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers 50-27 recently have played some incredible basketball and presently are ranked 2nd in the Eastern Conference and clinched a playoff berth and in 1st place is the Atlanta Hawks at 57-19.

This Tuesday night at 8 PM ET the Cleveland Cavalier are playing at the Bucks of Milwaukee 38-39 and 6th in the Eastern Conference, and the game will be played at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Whether they win or lose the have only 5 more remaining games on their schedule. On the Friday the 10th of Feb. they play at home against the Celtics, on Sunday the 12 at Celtics, on Monday the 13th the Pistons at home and their last regular season game in Wed. the 15th of Feb at home against the Wizards.

With another win the Cavaliers would help to seal their crown for the Central Division of the NBA Eastern Conference. So if you Bet on NBA at SBG Global, you know that the Cavaliers recently reached 50 wins and James got his 1st triple/double since he began playing with Cleveland once again. Also you should know that since the 15th of January 2015 the Cleveland team is 31-7 and that just may be tops in the NBA for that period of time.

One of the Cav’s stars of late is Smith who against the Bulls, all his attempted shots were from 3-point range and he had no attempts in the game for field goals. In that game he put up some 24 points and that was on 8 3-pointers. Now that LeBron has settled in Cleveland it appears that he could win another MVP Title which would be his 5th in the NBA. In his 2 games with Milwaukee this 2014-15 seasons he compiled an average of 7.4 rebounds, 7 assist, 4 steals and 28 points for the two games against the Bucks of Milwaukee.

King James could strengthen his case for a fifth MVP award this season with another all-around performance against the Buck’s. He has averaged 27 points, 7.5 rebounds, eight assists and three steals in the two games he played against Milwaukee this season. In Cleveland’s last 7 games at home they are 5 and 2 against the spread as well as straight up.

If you are a Milwaukee fan, you are aware that your Bucks got smashed at home this past Sunday by the Magic of Orlando 98-91. Unfortunately that was an oddball game and two of their star point scorers (Carter-Williams and Antetokounmpi) were unable to perform, but that is not expected to continue in this game against the Cavaliers. That’s because in their previous 2 games with Cleveland this season both those players had excellent games.

In this game the Milwaukee team will seek assistance from their offense for the interior sector of the court, as they actually have scored more points than Cleveland in those zones in their ultimate 3 season games. That primarily because Williams and Antetokounmpo both have had a high (over 49%) percentage of their scoring in games at home in the paint.

MCW should do well to exploit his distinct size advantage over Irving to score in the paint. He’s making 48.4 percent of his shots in the paint in home games this season compared to just 26 percent from mid- and three-point range combined. Antetokounmpo is making 58 percent of his shots in the paint in home games this season. But a helpful scoring hand for Ilyasova who has become a strong 3-point shooter lately as he was making 43% of his shots. Presently we received no predictions on this game between the Cav’s and the Bucks for Wednesday night.
