The Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Staples Center.
The Milwaukee Bucks look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.7 points and 14 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 19.4 points and 5.6 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 68.4 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 51.6 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks won three of their first four road games.
The Los Angeles Clippers look for another win after winning three of their last four games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 112.9 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 107.3 points on 45 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 29.3 points and 7.3 rebounds while Lou Williams is averaging 20.3 points and 4.7 assists. Montrezl Harrell is the third double-digit scorer and JaMychal Green is grabbing 4.9 rebounds.

The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.7 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have won all four home games this season.
The Bucks are 30-14-1 ATS in their last 45 games playing on 1 days rest, 21-9 ATS in their last 30 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Clippers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win. The Bucks are 5-11-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings in L.A and 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Clippers last 4 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Bucks last 5 road games.
The Milwaukee Bucks seem to be turning the corner after a sluggish start, but it's fair to note they have been shaky at times defensively and have blown big leads multiple times already. The Los Angeles Clippers have played their best ball at home and have the defensive pressure to make life difficult for other guys not named Antetokounmpo. A battle between two of the better teams in the league, I give the Clippers the edge because of their consistency and their defensive ability.
