1 Milwaukee Bucks vs. No. 8 Orlando Magic
Last season Giannis Antetokounmpo led the top-seeded Bucks all the way to the Eastern Conference finals and a 2-0 lead over the Raptors. Antetokounmpo is a candidate to win the award for a second straight season, increasing his scoring, rebounding and 3-point percentage in the process.
Butler has found resurgence in his first season in Miami, leading the team in scoring averaging 20.2 points per game, to along with 6.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists.
The Nuggets are giving up just 107.4 points per game, tied for eighth-fewest in NBA. But James Harden hasn’t scored fewer than 27 points in any of the three games he’s played against Denver this season.
