Here’s a short breakdown of five noteworthy games:
Wednesday, October 31 at Orlando Magic
The season starts on Halloween in Florida for the Bucks. The Magic are improved thanks to the acquisition of Rashard Lewis and the inevitable development of young star Dwight Howard. These two teams are possible challengers for the final couple playoff spots in the East.
Saturday, November 3 vs Chicago Bulls
This is the first game at the Bradley Center for the Bucks. They have won their past four home openers but extending the streak won’t be easy against this Eastern Conference favorite.
Friday, January 11 at Los Angeles Lakers
The Bucks head west for their only appearance of the season on ESPN.
