The Jazz are about to face what could possibly be their toughest test of this road trip. The Milwaukee Bucks are playing great right now and are coming off a huge win over the mighty Boston Celtics. This should be a fun game to watch as well as a good test to see really how well the Jazz are playing as a team. They are going to need great outside shooting again to get by this Bucks team unscathed. If the guards are shooting well, it will open up the middle for Millsap, Boozer and Okur to do some damage inside.
Andrew Bogut is looking stellar. He had a monster dunk over Big Baby the other night that looked pretty insane for the former Ute. He is having a pretty good year and has been fairly healthy for the first time in who knows how long. Look for him to have a big game. If the rookie Brandon Jennings gets hot and takes control of his team, the Jazz could have a lot to handle.
Despite the Buck's good play as of late, I am still picking the Jazz to take this game. Boozer is due for another monster game and the whole team is shooting too well to bet against them (not that I'm betting). A win in Milwaukee is just what the Jazz need to take some big time momentum into OKC. Look for the Jazz to start strong and hold strong. Utah Jazz 104/ Bucks 93. JB
