Jarrett Allen Will Look To Have Another Big Game Against the Milwaukee Bucks

In order for the Cleveland Cavaliers to win its sixth game in the last seven contests, Jarrett Allen will need to have his fingerprints all over the floor against the Milwaukee Bucks. Brook Lopez is a very good defender and he will look to make life difficult for him. As a team, Milwaukee isn’t very good defensively but Lopez can limit the damage Allen can do in the paint and on the glass.

However, when star players are out, Jarrett Allen usually steps up so he may get his numbers anyway. It would not be a surprise to see him have another double-double. Allen this season in 26 games is averaging 13.7 PPG, 9.2 RPG, 2.7 APG, 0.9 BPG, and 0.8 SPG.
