Previous matchup

Jan. 21: Bucks 126, Grizzlies 114

What's up with the Bucks?

The Bucks, who are second in the Eastern Conference, have won back-to-back games heading into the Memphis matchup. And they've done that without Khris Middleton.

Fortunately, Middleton is probable to play tomorrow against the Grizzlies. This season, he's been averaging 25.3 points and 5.1 rebounds in his last 10 games.

For the Bucks to win, though, Middleton will have to play his A-game since he won't have his two fellow stars along with him tomorrow. Giannis Antetokounmpo is questionable to play while Justin Holiday is out due to left ankle soreness.

What's up with the Grizzlies?

All-Star guard Ja Morant has been out due to a knee injury, but the Grizzlies have managed to rack up wins without him.

Stepping up for Memphis, which is on a 3-game winning streak, in Morant's absence has been Desmond Bane and Jaren Jackson Jr.

Both have been shouldering the Grizzlies' offense recently. Bane has been shooting 43 percent from beyond the arc, making 3 triples per game, while Jackson is averaging 15.6 points in his last 10 games on 44 percent shooting.

Also interesting to note that the Grizzlies are looking for their 7th straight win at home.
