Cleveland Cavaliers vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but they still don't play a lick of defense and they just fired their head coach. There's a lot going on with the Bucks right now, and who knows what to expect with the quick turnaround. Also, we're getting a lot of points with a Cavs team that's won 8 straight games and has covered 7 of their last 8 games. The Cavs beat the Bucks last week by 40 points. 40!!!! Will Doc Rivers even be ready to coach the Bucks? Give me the Cavs and the buckets.
