The Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at American Airlines Arena.

ABOUT THE BUCKS (5-5): Antetokounmpo is averaging 26.5 points on 57.1 percent shooting, 10.5 rebounds, six assists, three blocks and 2.5 steals over the last two games. He received support versus the Hawks from Jabari Parker, who chipped in 23 points and eight boards, but just two others hit double figures and the bench was 9-of-32 from the floor. Parker has topped the 20-point mark in four of his seven games this month.

ABOUT THE HEAT (2-8): Hassan Whiteside, who finished Tuesday’s loss with 19 points and a career high-tying 25 rebounds, has taken comfort in the fact that Miami has held eight of its 10 opponents under 100 points. “We’re right there. It makes no sense to get down on ourselves,” he told reporters after the setback. “It’s not like we’re getting blown out. We’re still a top-five defensive team. We’re just trying to get the offense there.” Getting some consistent play from streaky shooting guard Dion Waiters would help in that regard, as he followed up a 27-point effort in a loss at San Antonio with 11 points on 5-of-18 shooting versus Atlanta.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Heat listed as TBA-point favorites versus the Bucks, while the game’s total is sitting at TBA.

The Miami Heat will try to snap their longest losing streak in nine seasons when they host the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. Four of the Heat’s six straight losses – their longest slide since a seven-gamer near the end of the 2007-08 season – have been by single digits, including a 93-90 setback against Atlanta on Tuesday.

“Old story. You’ve got to keep on pounding that rock,” coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters. “We’ve gone toe-to-toe two nights in a row to basically the end. This is where you have to have great mental resolve to stay the course.” Point guard Goran Dragic is questionable to return from an ankle injury that has sidelined him for the last three games and forward Justise Winslow may miss his second contest in a row due to a wrist issue. That would leave Miami short-handed once again as it takes on a Bucks team that has claimed six of the last seven meetings, including three straight in South Florida. Milwaukee fell 107-100 in Atlanta on Wednesday despite 26 points and 15 rebounds from Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Heat were a 93-90 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Hawks. They covered the +6.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (183) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Milwaukee lost its last outing, a 107-100 result against the Hawks on November 16. The Bucks failed to cover in that game as a +5-point underdog, while the 207 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
