Milwaukee Bucks will face the floundering Detroit Pistons on Monday night. So they should have a grand chance to turn things around. On March 25, the Denver Nuggets defeated Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks, 129-106. The Bucks faced a formidable opponent since they were playing the second night of a road back-to-back after defeating Utah the day before. Since the star forward is now labeled as probable to play despite having knee pain, Giannis Antetokounmpo is anticipated to participate.
With eight games left, Milwaukee (first in the East at 53-21) is only 1.5 games ahead of Boston (52-23), the second-seeded team. The Bucks’ prospects of maintaining home-court advantage throughout the playoffs depend on each and every game. The worst record in the league going into Monday belongs to Detroit (16-58, 15th in the East). Detroit Pistons have dropped their last five games. Milwaukee is currently 3-0 against Detroit in their season series.

We expect crowder to make his return to the lineup and bring his customary 3-and-D output for the Bucks. After missing three games due to the pain in his left calf. Currently, the defensive-minded forward averages 6.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 39% from beyond the arc on three field goal attempts per game.
Goran Dragic is also anticipated to put on the Milwaukee Brewers uniform and make his eagerly anticipated Bucks debut. It is necessary for both the seasoned veteran and Crowder to catch up soon as the playoffs draw closer as Milwaukee looks to make another strong postseason push.
