The Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Hornets tip off Sunday in an early afternoon matchup for these teams, the second of the season (at least in local time) after their meeting in Paris earlier this year. Milwaukee won that matchup 116-103, handily, like they have almost all season.
A few changes are in store this time around, with Marvin Williams swapping squads, and treated to a pregame tribute video. Additionally, it looks like Khris Middleton will sit out his second straight game.

Says they’re hopeful he will play tomorrow in Miami.
That didn’t matter in Milwaukee’s teardown of Oklahoma City on Friday, but we will see if it has any impact on their scoring punch today. Apologies for the truncated preview today, but let’s all hope we’re treated to a Giannis Antetokounmpo game that can defy the “Giannis Nap” theory. I think that would make for a satisfying Sunday.
