The Oklahoma City Thunder and Milwaukee Bucks meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum.
The Oklahoma City Thunder look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak.

Paul George is averaging 28.1 points and 8.1 rebounds while Russell Westbrook is averaging 23 points and 10.7 assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Steven Adams is grabbing 9.6 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 71.3 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.9 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma City Thunder have split their last six road games.
The Milwaukee Bucks look for another victory after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 118.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 109 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.7 points and 12.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 18.2 points and 4.3 assists.

The Thunder are 23-9 ATS in their last 32 Wednesday games, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest. The Bucks are 6-1-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest, 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Northwest. The Thunder are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Milwaukee and the favorite is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Bucks last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Thunder last 4 games playing on 0 days rest.
With this line, I'm assuming the Milwaukee Bucks are resting all of their key players with the top seed locked up and the playoffs starting on Saturday. The Oklahoma City Thunder have a quick turnaround her after a late game last night that included an emotional last second victory, so it could be tough to get focused her. However, OKC is still playing for seeding, so there's no questions about who is sitting or playing. A full OKC roster against the Bucks backups, this is a game the Thunder should win comfortably.
