Milwaukee had won four straight games before losing back-to-back games to Phoenix and Portland. The Bucks were down 17 points to Portland at halftime, which was too much to overcome in the end. Star striker Giannis Antetokounmpo has been ruled out with an ankle injury and is listed as doubtful for Tuesday night’s game.
Pat Connaughton (finger) and Brook Lopez (back) will both sit out. Milwaukee already has three wins over Indiana this season, so it can complete the season sweep on Tuesday. The Bucks have covered the spread in seven consecutive home games against the Pacers.
