NBA Predictions: Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks 2/13/17

The Bucks' Greg Monroe cleaned up the glass, pulling down 2 offensive rebounds and 11 defensive rebounds.

Beasley hit his first five shots from the field and had 10 points in the first quarter.

By the time the Pistons had recovered from the blow, Milwaukee had built a 20-point lead and suffocated Detroit's offense enough. He's scored in double figures in three of his last four games and looked great tonight.

But while those two were dominating, the rest of the Bucks struggled to find the hoop, especially from outside, where the Bucks made just two of 11 3-point attempts before the break.

Brooklyn has lost 13 straight games, and Kidd is 9-1 as a coach against the Nets.

Bruce Rauner's first term of office is up. "I have a vision for the future that restores the economy", Kennedy said. Rauner's taken a state government budget problem and turned it into economic chaos for the rest of the state".

Antetokounmpo had gone scoreless to that point but snapped out of his drought with six in the quarter and finished with eight points. "That's what the best player on a team does".

"We were bad", Van Gundy said.

Tony Snell added 16 points in the victory and Khris Middleton played 18 minutes off the bench and showed off some vintage shooting skills, making multiple smooth jumpers on the way to 11 points.

Milwaukee's lone all-star selection Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the team in points-per-game (23.2). He leads the Eastern Conference with 37 double-doubles this season. After missing the first 50 games of the season while recovering from a torn hamstring, Middleton played two games then did not travel Saturday to IN, where the Bucks played the second half of a back-to-back. They return to action on February 24 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center against the Utah Jazz. "(We're) trying to not dig a bigger whole these last few games going into the All-Star break so we can come out of it with a little bit of momentum in the second half".

Since the loss to the Heat - in which Khris Middleton, who'd missed the first 50 games with a hamstring injury, made his season debut - and a subsequent home defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Bucks have won two games in a row, beating the Pacers in IN and the Detroit Pistons at home.
