Bucks and Rockets are two polar opposites physically. Milwaukee dominated with size, recovery and rim protection. Houston is probably the smallest team in NBA history, with 6-7 Robert Covington serving as their highest starters and defensive play center 6-5 PJ Tucker.
On Sunday, the two will face in a measurement game for both sides. Although they are in different conferences and the location of Milwaukee on the summit of the Eastern Conference is guaranteed, both may need to show some flexibility if they plan to make it to the NBA Finals. A match like this, against an overly stylish opponent, will serve as an important test of how both will deal with strategic curves when the playoffs come.
