Milwaukee Bucks vs LA Lakers: Prediction (Mar 26, 2024)

The Milwaukee Bucks will face the LA Lakers on March 26 (Tuesday) at the Fiserv Forum. This is the second matchup between the two teams, with the Lakers winning the first one 123-122. The Lakers are currently in ninth place in the Western Conference with a 39-32 record. They are coming off a 150-145 win over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. LA is now on a three-game winning streak and will look to extend it on Tuesday. On the other hand, the Bucks are in second spot in the Eastern Conference. They are coming off a 115-108 win over the Brooklyn Nets at home on Thursday. 

 

Preview 

The Lakers seem assured of a spot in the Western Conference playoffs. They hold a two-and-a-half game lead over the 10th placed Golden State Warriors and are trailing the 8th placed Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers won their third consecutive game on Sunday, outscoring the Pacers at home. The iconic duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis led the team to this win. Davis and James had 36 and 26 points, respectively. Spencer Dinwiddie also contributed with 26 points. This is his highest since joining the Lakers franchise. 

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks are now on a 45-25 record after defeating the Thunder. They are strong contenders for the second spot in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks currently hold a three-game lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers, with just 11 games remaining in the regular season. The game against OKC saw a standout performance from Khris Middleton, who returned after recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him for 20 games. The Bucks will look to even the season series in the upcoming contest after losing the first matchup by a single point earlier this month. 

 

Starting lineup 

The Lakers will most likely start with D’Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, LeBron James, Rui Hachimura and Anthony Davis. 

The Bucks are expected to start with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, Khris Middleton, Malik Beasley and Brook Lopez.
