The Milwaukee Bucks play host to the struggling Washington Wizards tonight at the Harris Bradley Center.
The Washington Wizards have bounce back from a six-game losing streak with two win in their last three outings after beating the Heat by 99-97 last night. John Wall scored just six points, but still impacted the game with 12 assists, three steals and two blocks, Bradley Beal scored 17 points and Nene Hilario scored 20 points as the Wizards snuck past the Heat. The first half was all Washington as they led by 67-39 going into halftime, but the Wizards were almost left with cake on their face as the Heat dominated the second half by 58-32 but just fell short of the comeback. With the win, Washington improved to 35-27 overall and 22-10 at home.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have lost six of their last seven and will be eager to avoid a fifth straight loss after losing to the Warriors by 102-93 on Wednesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Michael Carter-Williams led the scoring with 16 points each while Khris Middleton added 14 points, but while the Bucks fought hard for three quarters, they just couldn't contain Stephen Curry and the Warriors in a 30-22 fourth quarter and it cost them the game. With the loss, Milwaukee drops to 32-29 overall which drops them 2.5 behind fifth-placed Washington.
In ATS trends, the Wizards are 5-17 ATS in their last 22 games overall and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games, while the Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall.
Head to head, the Wizards are 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Milwaukee.
The Wizards were really struggling for a while there but they seemed to have turned things around and I'm liking their chances to beating the Bucks on the road here.
