The Dallas Mavericks are looking to snap their three-game losing streak as they travel to Wisconsin to face Milwaukee Bucks on the second night of a back-to-back. Superstar Luka Doncic played 43 minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Raptors, but he will be geared up to face Giannis Antetokounmpo in a battle of MVP frontrunners.
The Bucks have won two of their last three games as the Greek Freak remains unstoppable. Dallas will need Maxi Kleber to guard Giannis, and fans should not be surprised to see them bust out some exotic defenses as they look to slow down Milwaukee.
