The Bobcats have been playing stingy defense recently. Charlotte has held its last four opponents to 36.7 percent shooting and 25.3 percent from 3-point range. Not surprisingly, all four of those games fell below the number.
Off a 117-114 win over the Hornets last time out, the Bucks were recently at the opposite end of the spectrum. Still, lets not forget that they limited the Pacers to just 85 the previous game. In three road contests this season, the Bucks are allowing only 91.7 ppg. Two of those stayed below the posted total.
With coach Scott Skiles calling his team’s defense in the New Orleans game “embarrassing,” Milwaukee should look for an improved defensive effort here.
Mike Dunleavy would note: “You want to stop the other team. You want to keep them below 90 points … ”
Take a look at the Under.
