They will be going for their third win in a row and 10 win in their last 11 games as they try to snap their two-game losing streak to the Bucks.Never settle.

Carrying a 52-43 lead into the half, this contest had all the hallmarks of a playoff game through 24 minutes. That's all he needed. Ivica Zubac added 14 and 12 rebounds.

The 10-point burst almost lifted the roof off Fiserv Forum and the Clippers never recovered. "They made me feel special", said Antotekounmpo who turned 25 years old and celebrated his birthday by making 11 of 20 shots while grabbing 11 rebounds and issuing four assists. Milwaukee is favored by 3.5 points in the latest Bucks vs. Clippers odds, while the over-under is set at 233.

The Clippers' bench leads the National Basketball Association in minutes (112.4), points (53.9), rebounds (22.3) and field goals (19.8) per game.

This is the matchup everyone tuned in to watch, though, the two superstars didn't see as much of each other as you may have suspected.

The Milwaukee Bucks faced the new-look L.A. Clippers on the same day as Giannis Antetokounmpo's birthday in what could be a preview of the 2020 NBA Finals in June.

Mo Harkless was often the man charged with guarding Antetokounmpo, while Patrick Patterson also saw a stretch of possessions on the Greek Freak in the second quarter.

- Milwaukee tops the National Basketball Association with 51.8 rebounds per game, and the Clippers slot in at second with 49.0.

Williams added, "Sometimes teams play better than you, they want a game more than you".

On this night, the role was stunningly reveresed from the outset, as the self coined "Bench Mob" went to work. The Clippers rested Kawhi Leonard in that game and Paul George was still out as he recovered from offseason shoulder surgery.

Like the Bucks with reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Los Angeles is led by star power.

Donte DiVincenzo had 11 points for the Bucks who have not lost since dropping a 103-100 decision at Utah on November 8.

What does this result mean?

So without further ado, let's dive into what stood out in the Bucks' win over the LA Clippers from Friday night, starting with looking at the birthday boy's performance as well as how the Bucks fared without Antetokounmpo for the night.
