Game 56: Magic vs. Bucks GameThread

The Magic take on the league’s best (minus the Greek Freak)

NBA: Orlando Magic at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Orlando Magic (23-32) at Milwaukee Bucks (41-13)

When: Saturday at 9 p.m. EST

Where: Fiserv Forum - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

TV: Fox Sports Florida, NBA League Pass

Line: Bucks -6.5, Over/Under 221.5

Injuries: Orlando - Mo Bamba (out - foot), Markelle Fultz (out - shoulder); Milwaukee - Giannis Antetokounmpo (out - knee), Nikola Mirotic (out - calf)

Storyline: The Magic, three games behind the Heat for the eighth spot in the East, face the league’s best team. Life will be a little easier than expected for Orlando with Giannis Antetokounmpo not playing because of rest purposes knee soreness. The Bucks, however, do still have All-Star Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe, who the Magic couldn’t contain a few short weeks ago...
