The Milwaukee Bucks and the Houston Rockets will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Toyota Center.

ABOUT THE BUCKS (20-20): Milwaukee is built around standout forwards Giannis Antetokounmpo (23.4 points, 8.6 rebounds) and Jabari Parker (20.5 points), and Brogdon is displaying signs that he may develop into part of the foundation. The second-round pick from Virginia has started the team’s last 10 games and has scored in double digits in each, averaging 13.5 points and 5.6 assists during that span. A preseason injury to starting shooting guard Khrys Middleton (hamstring) left the backcourt without a key figure, and continued strong play by Brogdon would aid the Bucks in their playoff quest.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (32-12): The loss to lowly Miami was disappointing and partly attributable to an injury to backup shooting guard Eric Gordon and the absence of forward Ryan Anderson (flu). Gordon ranks second in the NBA with 152 3-point baskets, but he injured his left ankle early in the contest against the Heat and scored just seven points on 3-of-17 shooting – including 1-of-10 from 3-point range. Anderson, who ranks seventh with 119 3-pointers, is expected to return against the Bucks.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Rockets listed as 6½-point favorites versus the Bucks, while the game’s total is sitting at 224 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

James Harden attempts to add to his triple-double count, as well as help Houston break out of a minor funk, when the Rockets host the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. Houston has dropped three of its last four games, including Tuesday’s 109-103 loss to Miami despite Harden’s 40 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

Harden has recorded 13 triple-doubles this season, and Tuesday’s was the fourth in which he scored 40 or more points – one shy of the NBA record set by Hall-of-Famer Oscar Robertson in 1963-64. Houston’s star has registered seven triple-doubles in his last 11 games and is averaging 31.6 points, 11.1 assists and 10 rebounds during that stretch. Milwaukee has lost four of its last six games – including Monday’s 113-104 setback against Philadelphia – and players are becoming frustrated with the up-and-down nature of the team. “Everyone says we have a young team, but that’s an excuse,” Bucks rookie guard Malcolm Brogdon told reporters. “I think there’s a lack of focus. We’ve got to come out collectively, it’s not anybody individually. It’s a unit.”

Last time out for Houston, they were a 109-103 loser as they battled the Heat on the road. The Rockets failed to cover in the match as a -7-point favorite, while 212 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Bucks were a 113-104 loser in their most recent outing at home against the 76ers. They failed to cover the -8.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (217) made winners of OVER bettors.
