The Milwaukee Bucks are 3-9 against the Utah Jazz since February of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Sunday. They will face off at 7 p.m. ET Oct. 31 at Fiserv Forum without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. The Bucks are out to stop a four-game streak of losses at home.
The point spread favored Milwaukee this past Saturday, but luck did not. They fell to the San Antonio Spurs 102-93. The top scorer for Milwaukee was power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (28 points). That makes it three consecutive games in which Giannis Antetokounmpo has had at least ten rebounds.
Meanwhile, Utah came up short against the Chicago Bulls this past Saturday, falling 107-99. One thing holding Utah back was the mediocre play of point guard Jordan Clarkson, who did not have his best game: he finished with 16 points on 5-for-19 shooting and turned the ball over four times in his 29 minutes on the court.
Milwaukee is now 3-3 while the Jazz sit at 4-1.
