Milwaukee Bucks vs Memphis Grizzlies

Milwaukee Bucks 's Latest Performance :
The Bucks were able to pick up their 31st win of the year by beating the Heat in their last game. The Greek Freak put up an all-time clinic against the Heat defense that simply had no answers for him defensively. He was confident with his jumper hitting shots from the midrange and three-point without any hesitation. Bledsoe attacked the paint with ease as he put up a solid performance from Eric. He will be looking to attack Conley in his next game. Brook Lopez was able to bounce back and shot the ball with confidence as he is fitting into the Bucks system perfectly it will be interesting to see how he matches up against the Grizzlies with Gasol being out because of an injury.
Memphis Grizzlies's Latest Performance :
The Grizzlies had no answer for James Harden tonight as they allowed him to drop 57 points. It was unacceptable from the Grizzlies point of view considering how many players were missing on the Rockets roster. Mike Conley finished with 14 points while shooting 5-for-10 from the floor. He managed to dish out seven assists for the second consecutive outing. He is averaging 18.5 points, 4.8 assists, 2.2 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 2.2 three-pointers per game while shooting 41.2% from the field and 44.8% from beyond the arc. Jackson Jr. finished with 12 points and 6 boards on the evening. He’s averaging 16.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in January. It will be a very tough cover for him since he will be going up against the Greek Freak in this game. Gasol will still remain questionable in this game since he suffered an elbow injury against the Rockets.
