The matchup so nice, they scheduled it twice. After last night’s 114-108 overtime thriller, in which LeBron James hit one of the more preposterous threes of his career (I mean, SERIOUSLY?!), the Bucks head to Cleveland to try and take the advantage on the season series.
The Bucks are still the Bucks: Giannis is the best, Jabari doesn’t get the appreciation he deserves, Michael Beasley is weird, and Khris Middleton is still hurt. Let’s just enjoy some Presidential highlights from last night:

The Cavs are still the Cavs, but while Kevin Love is still questionable with a knee contusion, the perpetually-shirtless J.R. Smith may miss extended time as well:

If the Bucks are going to steal a game on the road against the defending champs, tonight may be a great opportunity.
