The Bucks have a 16-game winning streak under their belt that has propelled them to the top of the NBA standings, and they show no signs of slowing down. Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks star, has been a major factor in the team’s blazing performance. He missed five straight games due to left knee pain prior to this winning streak (the Bucks were 2-3); however, things have turned around since then for Giannis and the Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been a key component of the Bucks’ winning streak, excluding an overtime victory over the Suns on February 26 (which he missed due to a right quad contusion), averaging 31.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, and 5.4 assists – including a 54-point outburst against the Clippers at home on February 2.
The Bucks will be hoping to add another title contender to their list of defeated opponents when they take on Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers. Throughout their winning streak, the Bucks have defeated some of the NBA’s top teams, including the Nuggets and Celtics.

Is Giannis Antetokounmpo Playing against Philadelphia 76ers?
Regarding Giannis Antetokounmpo’s health, there has been no update prior to this highly anticipated clash. Thus, the Greek Freak will, thankfully for the Milwaukee Bucks, be present for this great game.
But as difficult a matchup as they come in the East is Joel Embiid against other big men. Will the current form of Giannis Antetokounmpo and co. win them this game as well? Or perhaps the Philadelphia 76ers, the third-seeded team, will speak up?

Is Wesley Mathew Playing against the Philadelphia 76ers?
During Saturday’s game against the 76ers, Wesley Matthews (calf) will be unavailable. On account of a strained right calf, Matthews will miss a fifth game on Saturday. Joe Ingles, AJ Green, and Jevon Carter should still receive extended minutes in his absence. On Sunday, against the Wizards, Matthews will get another opportunity to play.
