The Nets SIC Health Score 89.8 - will play their third straight home game with Kyrie Irving versus the Bucks Thursday, having split their first two contests against the Charlotte Hornets and Detroit Pistons.
After an insane five-game stretch that saw Kyrie Irving average 37.8 points, scoring 50-plus twice, he is averaging 17 points and 7 assists on 33.3% shooting in his last three games.
Ben Simmons remains out as he nurses a herniated disc in his lumbar spine and waits for his epidural to take effect, but both Seth Curry and LaMarcus Aldridge have returned from lingering injuries.
Curry is scoring 15.1 points on 49.2% shooting and 47.6% from 3-point range, while Aldridge has not played despite being available the last two contests, having lost his minutes to Andre Drummond and Nic Claxton.
The Bucks SIC Health Score 91.3 - are coming off of a dramatic win over the Philadelphia 76ers that saw Giannis Antetokounmpo post 40 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists, and a game-sealing block.
The two-time MVP has nursed a sore right knee in recent weeks, and is listed as day-to-day but is probable to play.
Milwaukee, who is now 11-3 since Feb. 28, will look to move to 34-9 when all three of Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday play this season.
Brook Lopez has scored double digits in five straight games since re-entering the starting lineup, averaging 13 points and 4.2 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per game while the Bucks ease him back in and move Bobby Portis back to a bench role.
Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 7.3 assists against the Nets this season.
