The Bucks will face the Grizzlies and Raptors after this game.

Washington Wizards

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been doing it tough lately as they've lost eight of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game skid after getting routed by the Heat in a 119-107 loss on Sunday.

As a team, the Wizards shot 45 percent from the field and 11 of 38 from the 3-point line, but they leaked 37 points in the second quarter to trail going into halftime, before they scored just 21 points in the third quarter to see the margin balloon out to 18 points at one stage.

Bucks vs Wizards prediction

The Bucks are still shorthanded with Damian Lillard still out with a groin strain, while the Wizards are still missing a bunch of players including Landry Shamet, Tyus Jones and Kyle Kuzma. The Bucks should win this easily even though they haven't been at their absolute best, and they are still missing Damian Lillard, but the Wizards are capable of hanging around in this one if the Bucks aren't focused. The Wizards have been a much better team recently, but they're just so banged up, which doesn't help against a team like the Bucks.
