Bucks star wary of Warriors

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo thinks Golden State Warriors will be gunning for revenge when the two teams meet on Friday.

The Bucks are 1.85 to come out on top and the Warriors can be backed at 2.00.

The Bucks look like genuine Championship contenders in the Eastern Conference and they backed up their title credentials at the start of last month with a 134-111 win at Golden State at the start of November.

Milwaukee are 8-4 since that success, while GSW have struggled but have rediscovered their form following Steph Curry’s return from injury.

Curry sustained a groin issue in the defeat to the Bucks but has played in the Warriors last three and managed a 42-point haul, with nine assists and seven rebounds, in a demolition of the Cleveland Cavaliers last time out.

Antetokounmpo is in confident mood ahead of the visit of the two-time defending champions but he is well aware Milwaukee will have to be at the top of their game if they are to secure a victory.

“Definitely they’re going to come out and try to get revenge,” said the Bucks forward.

“It’s going to be a tough game; hopefully, we can get it done.”

Milwaukee are 2.00 to score over 121.5 points and 7.50 to win by 5-8 points inclusive.

The Bucks sit in second place in the East with a record of 16-7, with the Warriors fourth in the Western Conference with a record of 17-9.
