Los Angeles Lakers vs Milwaukee Bucks: Storylines
The Lakers and Bucks will meet again for the second time this season. Their previous match took place in January, and the purple and gold claimed the win by 113-106. A little over two months after that duel, they will face each other still seeking the top places in the standings.
Los Angeles Lakers are once more among the serious contenders for the ring this year, but they have suffered huge blows lately. First, it was Anthony Davis' injury, which seemed to be a really tough one to take for them, and recently LeBron James was ruled out for three up to five weeks as well. Facing the next challenges without these two may be difficult for Vogel's team, but they have reasons to be confident once they recover.
Andre Drummond was their latest addition and once everyone gets ready to play, they would probably become unstoppable. Milwaukee, however, need to make the best of this situation to get back to winning ways. The Bucks seem to be safe at the third seed, but it's time for them to start picking up victories again.
