The Milwaukee Bucks are finally starting to play some consistent basketball and just beat the Nets rather easily on Thursday night. However, the Bucks don't have the firepower to blow teams out often and it's tough to beat the same team twice within three days. There's better bets on the board, but I'd side with the Nets and the points if I had to pick.
