Fixture: Milwaukee Bucks vs Orlando Magic
Date & Time: Monday, December 9, 2019 8:00 PM ET (Tuesday, 1:00 AM GMT)
Venue: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee.
After an ordinary start to the season, Orlando Magic have showed signs of improvement in the last few games. Although a relatively easier run of fixtures, Orlando have won their last four games. If they are to extend their winning run, they will beat a team that is on a streak of 14 consecutive wins.
Last season, Eastern Conference finalists Milwaukee Bucks have had an up and down start to the season. But since them they picked up with 14 wins in a row, staying on top of the Eastern Conference by some distance.

Injuries: Dragan Bender (Right ankle)- Out
Expected starting line up: Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Wesley Matthews, Giannis Antetokounmpo
The Bucks have been extremely dominant in the season so far. The reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the major reasons for them to show such dominace. He is averaging 30.8 points, 13.1 rebounds, and 5.4 assists in the season so far. He has been the team’s highest scorer in 20 out of 23 games that he played and also took down the most rebounds among the team members in 22 out of the 23 games.
For Orlando, Aaron Gordon seems to have found some form in the recent games. He has averaged 21 points per game in the Magic’s four-game winning streak. However, it seems highly unlikely that they will be able to stop the Bucks from winning their 15th game in a row.`
