Mortal Enemies: Brew Hoop

  • Bogut should be back in today's lineup after missing the previous game due to concussion like symptoms.
  • After a 5 game losing streak, the Bucks had won back to back games over the Spurs and the Pistons before dropping a road game against Dallas without Bogut. They have had the previous 2 days off.
  • Brandon Jennings is having by far the best season of his career, increasing his TS% by over 40 points.
  • Second round pick Jon Leuer, who I was a fan of as a potential second round pick, has started the past 2 games for the Bucks, and had scored in double figures in three consecutive games. That being said, Brand should be able to have some success against him in the post.
  • The Sixers are once again going against a below average offense, and Jrue has traditionally held Jennings in check, so I expect the Sixers to have another good defensive showing tonight. Once again, keeping them off the offensive glass is going to be key.

Prediction: Sixers 102 Bucks 91
