Bucks vs Lakers Prediction

The teams met in Milwaukee on Nov. 17 and the Bucks won 109-102 behind a 47-point outburst by Antetokounmpo. It was the Bucks’ second straight win over the Lakers and 10th in the last 12 meetings.

Portis added 17 points for the Bucks and Khris Middleton had 16 points and six assists. Talen Horton-Tucker led the Lakers with 25 points and 12 rebounds and Westbrook had 19 points and 15 assists.

The talented Lakers have been spinning their wheels but their biggest comeback since 2015 will help them gain traction.
