The Triple Team: Jazz with jaw-dropping, highlight-reel offense again in  win vs. Bucks

The defending champion Milwaukee Bucks continue their tune up for the regular season as they head to Utah tonight to face the Jazz in a preseason matchup. Game time is 9:00 pm ET at Vivint Arena.

The Bucks (1-2) are winless on the road so far this preseason, dropping a pair of contests at Memphis and Brooklyn. They did pick up their first victory of the preseason on Sunday at home as the Bucks easily handled Oklahoma City, 130-110. Starters Giannis Antetokounmpo (8 points) and Khris Middleton (14 points) saw limited floor time. As a team, Milwaukee outshot OKC (54.3 percent to 41.8 percent) and outrebounded the Thunder (55 to 35).

Utah (1-2) also broke through with its first win of the preseason on Monday with an easy 127-96 victory over New Orleans. Donovan Mitchell saw extensive floor time as he finished with 18 points in 30 minutes. Rudy Gobert also looked in regular-season form with 19 points and 19 rebounds in 24 minutes.

Dunkel has the underdog Bucks edging out a win on the road tonight with the final score going over the Vegas total of 222 ½.
