*3 Star Play on Bucks* The Orlando Magic are banged up heading into the postseason. Jonathan Isaac was really an important part of this team down the stretch and he is out for the year with an injury. Michael Carter-Williams is out with an injury. Mo Bamba is out for the year as well. Aaron Gordon is questionable for this game. If he plays he will be less than 100 percent.
The Milwaukee Bucks didn't play very well down the stretch in the bubble, but what did they have to play for? They didn't have to play well in that stretch, but now is their time to get things back together. The Magic injuries have turned them into a team without much depth at all, and that is a problem against a Milwaukee team that is extremely deep.
Giannis is a matchup problem for the Magic. Orlando will likely find it difficult to get open looks from long range against the Bucks as well. Orlando has been very streaky from 3 on the year, but they are a far below average team on the whole from long range.
Big favorites have done well early in the playoffs in the last decade. The Bucks are a far superior team, and they come in the much healthier team as well.
