Milwaukee Bucks need to beat the Memphis Grizzlies

As for the chances the Bucks beat the Grizzlies, you’d think they would be pretty high, but yet again, the anti-Phoenix-Suns basketball deities have intervened. There was a chance the Bucks’ stars were going to sit out anyway, but now Giannis Antetokounmpo may not have a choice.

On Tuesday night against the Wizards, the Greek Freak headbutted Mo Wagner, got ejected, and is now most certainly facing a suspension.


The MVP of the league just pulled a dirty soccer move on that goofy kid you might remember from his days at Michigan while playing for a team that was a courtesy invite to the bubble.

What the heck, Giannis?

Even without Antetokounmpo, the Bucks could still beat the Grizzlies. Memphis has been in a tailspin since arriving in the bubble and losing Jaren Jackson. Thus far, likely Rookie-of-the-Year, Ja Morant, hasn’t been able to do the same thing Damian Lillard has and single-handedly drag his team to victories.

The Bucks will have absolutely nothing to play for on Thursday, as they have long wrapped up the top seed in the East, but they might be looking to find some rhythm before the playoffs hit, and what better way to do that than against the Memphis Grizzlies?
