The Golden State Warriors are looking to bounce back from a dreadful showing on Sunday afternoon against the Boston Celtics when they take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday at Chase Center.

The Bucks stormed back from a double-digit deficit to beat the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, and the team has covered the spread in every game on its six-game winning streak. 

After Steph Curry and Klay Thompson left Sunday’s game early with injuries, can the Warriors hang around against this Bucks team?

Bucks vs. Warriors key players to watch

Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo: The MVP candidate missed the team’s win over the Clippers, but prior to that he was on a heater, scoring 46 points in a win over and 30 or more points in five of his last eight games. The Warriors are going to play small, so Antetokounmpo – if he plays – should have his way at the rim. 

Golden State Warriors

Jonathan Kuminga: Jonathan Kuminga has blossomed into a star in Golden State, averaging 18.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game since moving into the starting lineup permanently (18 games). The Warriors will need him to step up if any of their top scorers sit in this one. 

Bucks vs. Warriors prediction and pick

Golden State has not performed well as a home favorite, going 9-15 against the spread, but I think this spread is telling us something about Antetokounmpo’s injury. 

Giannis missed the team’s last game, and now he is listed as questionable with an Achilles injury again tonight. 

Golden State – despite the shellacking it took in Boston – has played a lot better over the last month, and the team is fully healthy for this game, welcoming Andrew Wiggins back into the lineup. 

I think the Warriors could pick up a win at home against a Milwaukee team that is a league worst 2-4 against the spread as a road underdog. 

Pick: Warriors -4.5 (-110)
