tiger pregame preview

A huge test for the Bucks tonight. It’s been our first two game loss streak of the season. Now we get to face the Pacers. Oh boooooy…. This team as been awful good to our surprise all season. Especially after losing Victor Oladipo for the season. They have a stingy defense and they play the Bucks well so I’m a bit nerved up about the game tonight. The Bucks could very easily regain their form tonight but also lose to a very good and underrated team. Let’s get into the details.

tiger pregame analysis

The Indiana Pacers are the 2nd ranked defense in the NBA right now and defensive teams tend to hamper the Bucks the most. Surprisingly though, the Pacers aren’t crazy impressive in terms of analytics. They are the 27th ranked pace team and they shoot low volume everything. They’re %’s are pretty solid but that doesn’t mean much based on their volume.

I’m surprised actually that the Pacers are not better at rebounding based on their personal actually. However, their advanced stats are some what intriguing because their shooting metrics are phenomenal. This is a sneaky efficient team that can grind you into their game. Short analysis tonight but it’ll be a’ight! I think the Bucks we’ll literally rebound their way to a victory tonight and get back on track!

TIGER PREGAME PREDICTION

The Bucks have been so resilient all season Bucks fans have to realize that this random 2 game losing streak is meaningless. The Bucks had the Jazz by 17 in the 4th quarter and also a big lead in the 4th quarter against the suns (10pt lead? Correct me if I am wrong!). The Bucks have been a little bit banged up lately and Bledsoe, Brogdon, and Hill all missed the Utah game. Let’s not overreact here. The Bucks are done with a difficult road trip with two days off. Fiserv Forum will be fired up to see the Bucks rally tonight. I like the Pacers a lot but the Bucks are primed to get a win tonight. I expect a close game but maybe the Bucks pull away at the end.

Final Verdict = (W) Bucks 117 @ (L) Opponent 110

TIGER’S Calling It…

“BUCKS BY 7.”

 

 
 

TIGERS FINAL TAKE

If Bucks fans are suddenly worried about the last two games. R. E. L. A. X. Famous words from Aaron Rodgers. Seriously. Chill out. We have higher standards now because our team is so fucking good. The Bucks will be fresh and ready to go tonight after a somewhat frustrating 2 game losing streak. Remember, it was the first! Should we really freak out about this? NO. GO BUCKS! BUCKS IN THE FINALS. BUCKS IN 6!
