UPCOMING MILESTONES:  With five assists, LeBron James passes Bob Cousy and moves into 16th for NBA career assists.

As the Cavaliers look to continue their best start in franchise history, they are set to face the 7-8 Milwaukee Bucks – who snagged ex-Cavalier and NBA-champion Matthew Dellavedova on a four-year, $38 million contract this summer. Coming off of a 104-96 win in Orlando, the Bucks are currently sitting as the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference and have lost six of their last nine games

The Bucks have been doing a solid job at moving the ball – they are 4th in the league in assists per game with 24.3, assisting on 18.2% of possessions, and are 9th in assist-to-turnover ratio. In terms of scoring, they lead the league in percentage of points coming from inside the paint with 47.9%. In addition, they have the 3rd highest percent – 18.2% – of points off of turnovers – partially due to their 7th highest 8.6 steals per game.

On defense, they give up 103.3 points per 100 possessions – the exact same amount as the Cavaliers. While defending shots beyond the arc, they have held their opponents to a league best 31.3%, which may present an issue for the Cavaliers who rely so heavily on the three-pointer.

Key players to watch for on the Bucks will be Matthew Dellavedova – averaging 6.3 assists per game – Giannis Antetokounmpo – averaging 22.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 2.1 blocks per game – and Jabari Parker – averaging 18.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

Tipoff is set for 8:00 PM EST and will be broadcast on FOX Sports Ohio.
