Game Coverage: Bucks vs. Magic Coverage

A winning-streak is upon us with Milwaukee coming off two straight wins dating back to last Saturday. The Bucks ended Memphis' winning streak after a Brandon Knight game-winning three-point-play, and guided past a banged up Oklahoma City Thunder team on Tuesday. After tonight's matchup, the team will stay in Florida while the rest of us freeze to death here in Wisconsin, as they'll get ready to face the Miami Heat on Sunday.

The Magic return home after a quick 1-2 road trip looking to win their 17th straight at home against the Bucks. Orlando defeated the New York Knicks 97-95 in Madison Square Garden  Tuesday, and received big contributions from Evan Fournier (a career-high 28 points), along with Nikola Vucevic (20 points and 13 rebounds). Former Bucks forward Tobias Harris is off to a blazing start, averaging roughly 17 points per game with eight boards (sigh).
