Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Odds, Preview, Prediction and Tips
Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NBA Basketball Game on Saturday February 6th, 2021.
The Milwaukee Bucks are looking to maintain their recent grip on the Cavaliers on Saturday when the teams meet in Cleveland.
The Bucks opened a six-game road trip with a 123-105 victory over the Cavaliers on Friday. Six is ??the operating number; Milwaukee has defeated Cleveland six times in a row since the 2018-19 season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo overcame early foul problems in the first half to score 22 of his 33 points after intermission in Friday's win. The two-time NBA MVP looked much more comfortable in the third quarter, and that allowed Milwaukee to turn the tide.
Milwaukee avoided perimeter play in favor of blowing up the inside while racking up 74 points in the paint. The Bucks made 21 shots from 3-point range in each of their previous two games before attempting just 22 (making seven) on Friday.
Antetokounmpo, who also had 12 rebounds on Friday, was left out with back spasms in Milwaukee's 100-90 win over the Cavaliers on Jan.9.
Jrue Holiday scored 17 points in the most recent game, a game that was difficult for the Bucks after mechanical problems with his plane forced them to fly to Cleveland on Friday.
Good feelings for the Cavaliers have been scant of late. Cleveland has lost six of its last eight games to drop three games, the worst of the season, below .500.
The Bucks outscored the Cavaliers by a 63-42 margin in the second half, and Cleveland made just 3 of 13 shots from 3-point range in that stretch.
Jarrett Allen also cited his team's defensive errors as a reason for the Cavaliers' downfall on Friday.
Collin Sexton led the Cavaliers with 19 points. He missed the previous meeting with Milwaukee with a sprained left ankle.
Andre Drummond had 26 points and 24 rebounds in Game 1 and had 18 and nine, respectively, on Friday.
