Two Eastern Conference powers have tipped off in Milwaukee as the Indiana Pacers take on the first-place Bucks. Giannis and co. are hoping to halt a two-game slide after losses against the Jazz and Suns, while the Pacers continue their good form without injured star Victor Oladipo.
Pacers at Bucks

Bucks: Limiting the influence of NBA phenomenon Giannis Antetokounmpo may not be an easy task, but it will give just about any team confidence that the Jazz and the Suns have pulled it off in successive weeks.
Antetokounmpo finished top of the scoring, assist and rebound charts in both those matchups, yet it was insufficient to deliver victory and puts their perch atop the Eastern Conference in jeopardy.
The Bucks are 11-1 in the Central Division this season, while the Pacers are 9-4 and already lost 118-101 at the Fiserve Forum in October. They have the opportunity to balance the books and level at 2-2 against Milwaukee this season if they win on Thursday.
Pacers: Bojan Bogdanovic has been Indiana’s top scorer in each of their last five games, including their 105-96 win over the Chicago Bulls at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday. However, it doesn’t favor the Pacers to have one day of respite fewer than their upcoming opponents, not to mention the fact they’ve lost their previous two road games.
The Pacers can add some late drama to the Central Division if they can inflict a third consecutive defeat upon high-flying Milwaukee, whose star man Giannis looks to ignite their revival.
