If you are a big fan of the rule changes that have made it easier for teams to score than you are going to love Thursday night’s Warriors-Bucks game. The game will feature some of the best players currently in the NBA like Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

While Antetokounmpo may be the only superstar on the roster for the Bucks, they do have a solid cast of talent around him with guys like Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton, and Brook Lopez. As a unit, they have the second-best offenses in the NBA (120.0 points a game). Their defense isn’t too shabby either (107.3 points/game allowed; fifth in the league).

Golden State and its cast of superstars got off to a slow start losing in their third game. But they haven’t lost since or really ever been in real danger of losing. Their arsenal of weapons, much like it has been for the last few seasons, are too much for just about everyone.

But should the Bucks be included in that blanket ‘everyone?’ Or do they have enough defense to hand the Warriors their second loss?

The Bucks are good, and Antetokounmpo is one of the best young talents in the game. They should be able to give the Warriors the hardest fight they have seen all season especially without Draymond Green to help on defense. But it is hard to go against a team like the one Golden State has.

Take the Warriors to win but look for the Bucks to win against the spread. When it comes to the over/under—this is the easiest call ever. Take the over.
