NBA FREE PICK: Milwaukee Bucks +2.5
Orlando vs. Milwaukee,
02/20/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 93 - 90
Point Spread: +2½/-108 Milwaukee
This will be the third meeting between these two teams over the last 10 days. The Magic won the first meeting at Milwaukee 99-94 thanks to a 21-6 over the last five and half minutes of the game. Orlando would then beat the Bucks 94-85 after closing the game out on a 17-0 run.
Outside of the final minutes the Bucks pretty much dominated the game, and those losses are ones that are hard to let go. I look for Milwaukee to come out extremely motivated in this game and to play much better in the fourth quarter this time around.
While both teams played Sunday, the Magic went on the road to face the Heat in an intense showdown on ABC and the Bucks went on the road to face a bad Nets team. I think Orlando will struggle to come out with a lot of energy in this game, especially considering they have already beat this team twice in a short period of time. BET THE BUCKS!
