The Philadelphia 76ers will lock horns with the Milwaukee Bucks in an Eastern Conference matchup at the Fiserv Forum Arena on Thursday, February 17. Both sides have faced off only once this season and the Milwaukee Bucks were the team that prevailed on that occasion.
Giannis Antetokounmpo added 31 points and 16 rebounds to lead the way from the front on that night to help the Bucks get to a 118-109 win.
The 76ers come into this game on the back of a blowout loss to the Boston Celtics. Joel Embiid’s run of 25+ points in over 20 consecutive games ended as the team lost 135-87 at home. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown were the catalysts behind the win as they combined to score 57 points for the Celtics.
The Milwaukee Bucks, on the other hand, pulled off a stunning win against the Indiana Pacers in their last game. Giannis Antetokounmpo shined for the team as he scored 50 points on the night.
“The Greek Freak” was unstoppable in the game, shooting the ball at 81% efficiency from the field. They will be hoping for a similar performance from him in this game as that will help give them a shot of confidence going into the All-Star break.

76ers vs Bucks Match Prediction
The 76ers and the Bucks are both stellar teams, and this game has all the looks of a nail-biting encounter. However, considering the form Antetokounmpo is in, the Bucks will head into this game as favorites. But in order to grab a win, they will have to put in a lot of work as the 76ers are not an easy team to break down.
