NBA Eastern Conference leaders, the Milwaukee Bucks, will be banking on reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to fire when they take on former MVP James Harden’s Houston Rockets on Monday. 

The Bucks are slowly inching closer to sealing the top-seed ahead of the NBA Playoffs. You can watch the Milwaukee Bucks vs Houston Rockets match on live streaming in India.

Antetokounmpo was sensational in his and the Bucks’ first match since the NBA’s restart in Orlando. The 25-year-old notched up 15 rebounds and provided seven assists to go along with a game-high 36 points, leading his side to a 119-112 victory over the Boston Celtics.

The ‘Greek Freak’ is enjoying another tremendous campaign and is the favourite to win his second MVP crown as well as the Defensive Player of the Year award but faces stiff competition from the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James and Anthony Davis for those titles.

Another player with an outside chance of winning the MVP award is Houston Rockets’ James Harden, who scored 49 points in his side’s 153-149 victory after overtime over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

The two-time reigning NBA scoring champion, Harden is on course to win his third straight scoring title, becoming only the third player after Micheal Jordan and Kevin Durant to win the title thrice in a row in the past 40 years.

The two sides last met in October last year where the Bucks won 117-111 on the back of a 30-point triple-double from Antetokounmpo. 

Later on Monday, Miami Heat will look to capitalize on the Celtics’ loss and close in the third spot in the Eastern Conference standings when they meet reigning NBA Champions Toronto Raptors, who are in action on Sunday against the Lakers. 

The Heat will then face Celtics on Wednesday and victories in their next two matches will see them significantly close the gap on third place in the Eastern Conference standings.
