Reigning NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks will face the Utah Jazz in their third preseason game of the season at the Fiserv Forum on Wednesday.

Milwaukee Bucks Preview
The Milwaukee Bucks welcomed Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday to their fold in their last game. All three stars played key roles, with Middleton scoring 14 points.
However, the Bucks’ star so far in the preseason has been Jordan Nworra, who was not a starter against the OKC Thunder. Instead, Nworra came off the bench to achieve the highest score for his team with 15 points and also had eight rebounds. It looks like Nworra will play a similar role from the bench when the NBA season begins.
Utah Jazz Preview
The Utah Jazz came to life against the New Orleans Pelicans, recording their first victory of the preseason. Rudy Gobert came up with a defensive masterclass, recording 19 points and the same number of rebounds in just 24 minutes.
Donovan Mitchell also looked healthy for the Jazz; he was his second-highest scorer of the night with 18 points. Eric Paschall scored 14 points from the bench, while Jordan Clarkson looks ready to continue his role from the bench in the new season as well.
The Utah Jazz were able to count on their big stars in the last game, and they are ready to continue the same against the reigning NBA champions as well.
Bucks vs Jazz match prediction
The Utah Jazz could start with all their key stars, although Mike Conley was not at his best in the last game. The Milwaukee Bucks, meanwhile, have the quality on paper to beat the Jazz. They gave their big 3 an extended run in their last game. The defending champs are the obvious favorites for this showdown.
