Philadelphia 76ers Team News 

Doc Rivers’ team was defeated in the season opener by the Celtics at TD Garden and will be looking for their first win of the season in front of their home crowd. They lacked a bit of toughness last year, so this year they decided to bring in experienced fighters and players from the task. PJ Tucker and Trez Harrell arrived, who with their energy and experience will contribute a lot to the jump of the 76ers.

In the first game against the Celtics, James Harden, scoring 35 points. Although Embid scored 26 points, the zonal and mobile defense of the Celtics protected him well and dragged him into a bad rhythm. The Sixers showed that they have a lot of defensive problems when the “small-ball” fives spread Embid out and take him out of the racket. That was severely punished by Brown, Tatum, and Grant Williams.

To make a breakthrough this year, the Sixers need to work more on their defense. Thybulle’s minutes have been reduced a lot lately, and therefore the defensive potential of the team is worse. Maxey contributes a lot to the Phila offense, and he became very consistent last season, which he carried over to this season. Next to him is the experienced Tobi Harris, who has played hot and cold throughout his career, but whenever he did the job for which he was paid dearly, the Sixers would win.

Milwaukee Bucks Team News 

The champions from two years ago are starting the new season in Pennsylvania, where they will face the local Sixers. The Bucks haven’t changed much this season. And they had no reason to because during the entire season and the playoffs they played excellent basketball led by the great Giannis. They were eliminated in the East semifinals by the Celtics in 7 games. But they missed Khris Middleton in that playoff.

They strengthened themselves with one of the best sixth players in the league, who is excellent in both directions, and is the Australian representative, Joe Ingles, who arrived from Utah, and was injured the previous season. The biggest boost for the Bucks will certainly be the return of Middleton, who is a perfect pair with Giannis. The entire team from Wisconsin is designed in such a way that they open up space and create corridors for Giannis through the racket, and they get rebounds and have open positions for shots from the field. Everyone is shooting and with Ingles, it will be even better.

Giannis is both an offensive and defensive force, and we can expect a great duel between him and Embid. The Bucks have problems with injuries, but the absence of Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton, who is an important factor in the Bucks system.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Prediction 

The Sixers are also playing with their strongest lineup in this match, while the Bucks will not have Middleton, Connaughton, Matthews and Thanasis in their lineup.

The Sixeres are the bookmakers’ favorites in this match. The home field and a couple of injured players in the Bucks team confirm that. Without Middleton, the Bucks are a completely different team. They have problems in the defense of the Sixers, but they are a serious force offensively, and we believe that they will win this match and take advantage of the weakness of the team from Wisconsin.
