The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night at Fiserv Forum. The Kings (13-9) are coming in on a three game winning streak. They defeated the Chicago Bulls 110-101 back on Sunday. The Bucks (17-6) have won two in a row, five of their last six, and seven of their last 10. Milwaukee has an 11-3 record at home, the best in the NBA. Of course, all eyes will (as always) be on Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak, who just turned 28 this week, is riding a streak of seven-straight games with 30+ points. Will he be able to continue that streak against the Kings? If his top five performances against Sacramento are any indication, the answer is “Yes!”
