Oklahoma at Milwaukee
Happy New Year everyone and back on the game again in 2010 for new NBA free tips ! Today I spotted a match up between two teams found in complete opposite moods.
After the 87-86 victory over Utah on Thursday night, the Oklahoma City franchise won five straight for the first time since March 18-25, 2005. Durant, who has tied a franchise mark for consecutive 30-point games, leads the Thunder as they attempt to extend their winning streak to six for the first time in five years in a matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
Durant had 33 points, 12 rebounds and five assists in his first matchup with Milwaukee (12-18) this season, a 108-90 Oklahoma City win Nov. 27. Milwaukee shot 37.8 percent in that contest. He is coming off his sixth straight 30-point game, tying the franchise record and is averaging 34.0 points during his scoring run.
After opening up the season 8-3 the Bucks have since only won 4 games in their last 19 contests and also their last 4 home games have all been losses. The Thunder have been the exact opposite of the Bucks recent play they are on fire winning their last 5 games in row and also hold a very respectable road record on the season @ 9-7 su and 11-5 ats. Since Nov. 23rd the Bucks have avg. 95.7ppg of offense and giving up 101.3ppg on defense reflecting that horrible 4-15 su record since Nov. 23rd.
For the Bucks, Bogut had 15 points and 10 rebounds in a 117-92 loss at Orlando on Wednesday night, following one of the worst games of his career, posting two points on 1-of-6 shooting in a 94-84 loss to Charlotte on Monday night.
