MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 47-35, lost in first round.
COACH: Tom Thibodeau (third season, eighth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (14.2 ppg), G Derrick Rose (8.4 ppg) OR Jimmy Butler (22.2 ppg), F Andrew Wiggins (17.7 ppg), F Taj Gibson (12.2 ppg), C Karl-Anthony Towns (21.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Jamal Crawford, F Nemanja Bjelica
KEY ADDITIONS: F Anthony Tolliver, G Josh Okogie, F Keita Bates-Diop, F Luol Deng
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler requested a trade less than a week before the beginning of training camp. Thibodeau has said the Wolves will only grant his wish if they find a deal that makes sense for them, but the likelihood of Butler joining them on the floor after all the bluster is low. Assuming a trade is consummated, the Wolves would almost certainly receive a starter as part of a package. For now, Rose is playing the shooting guard spot after a decent showing down the stretch last season as yet another former Chicago Bulls player to reunite with Thibodeau.
OUTLOOK: Though the Wolves were able to celebrate their return to the playoffs last spring after a 13-year absence, they were already facing a rough road back in a rugged Western Conference that only got deeper over the summer. Then Butler's unhappiness came to a head. The good news for the Wolves is that Towns has continued to improve into one of the game's best big men with a smooth 3-point shot to boot, and at age 22 he already has his super-max contract signed. Even if this season proves to be a step back, Towns will be the franchise cornerstone for years to come.
MILWAUKEE: LAST SEASON: 44-38, lost in Eastern Conference first round.
COACH: Mike Budenholzer (first season, sixth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Eric Bledsoe (17.8 ppg), G Malcolm Brogdon (13.0 ppg), F Giannis Antetokounmpo (26.9 ppg), F Khris Middleton (20.1 ppg), C Brook Lopez (13.0 ppg)
KEY LOSSES: F Jabari Parker, G Jason Terry
KEY ADDITIONS: Lopez, F Ersan Ilyasova, G Pat Connaughton, rookie G Donte DiVincenzo PLAYER TO WATCH: What's next for Antetokounmpo playing under a new system with a new
COACH? Budenholzer is stressing spacing and perimeter shooting, which could open up more 1-on-1 opportunities to the lane for the 6-foot-11 forward with freakish athleticism. With LeBron James leaving Cleveland for the Lakers, Antetokounmpo could emerge as the best player in the East.
OUTLOOK: Expectations are up with the Bucks moving into a new arena and a new
COACH taking over with a track record of winning in the playoffs. The Bucks have made the postseason three out of the last four years. To take the next step, they must secure a top-four seed and/or at least advance out of the first round. Core players Middleton and Bledsoe are also entering the last years of their respective contracts, though Middleton has an option for 2019.
Bucks hope trend continues when they face Timberwolves

The Milwaukee Bucks will get a chance to match up against a Western Conference team on Saturday, and if recent history holds form, they are about to feast.

To be fair, the Bucks have feasted on just about everybody of late. They will enter Saturday's matchup at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves having won 15 of their last 17 games, including a 98-97 victory over the Boston Celtics at home on Thursday in their return from the All-Star break.

Against teams from the West, the Bucks have been even more impressive lately. Milwaukee last lost against a Western Conference team on Jan. 27, when it dropped a 118-112 decision at Oklahoma City. The Bucks' last loss to a Western Conference team before that was on Dec. 7 at home against the Golden State Warriors.

The Bucks do have six defeats against Western Conference teams, though, including one to the lowly Phoenix Suns on Nov. 23, so the Timberwolves can take that to heart when visiting their neighboring state to the east.

Figuring out a way to slow Giannis Antetokounmpo figures to be essential. The All-Star Game captain scored 30 points against the Celtics on Thursday, including 12 in the fourth quarter. His 25th game of at least 30 points this season came after scoring just four points in the first quarter.

"It says a lot about this team, how focused we are to get back on track," Antetokounmpo said about pulling off a hard-fought victory in the return from the break. "Obviously, you turn the ball over a lot (Thursday), and it's OK. We just came back from the All-Star break. We tried to get back on track and we will watch tape. We're going to try to be better offensively."

Antetokounmpo also grabbed 13 rebounds Thursday and has 41 double-doubles in 54 games this season.

The Wolves have their own All-Star in Karl-Anthony Towns, who has scored 23.1 points per game with 12.0 rebounds, but he did not play Friday in New York after he was involved in a car crash Thursday in Minneapolis.

A concussion forced him to miss the first game of his career, breaking his consecutive-game streak at 303, but the Timberwolves won 115-104 against the Knicks. Towns is listed as day-to-day and his status for Saturday is unknown.

Where Antetokounmpo has led his team atop the Eastern Conference standings, Towns and Andrew Wiggins (17.9 points per game) have only been able to fashion a 28-30 record.

But there are signs of life. The Wolves are on a three-game winning streak, but that came off a run where they lost six of seven.

Since head coach Tom Thibodeau was fired following a 108-86 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Jan. 6, Minnesota is 9-9 under interim coach Ryan Saunders. The Wolves are three games out of the conference's final playoff spot with two teams in front of them to become playoff eligible.

But Towns insists that all is not lost, showing that he has taken on the role of vocal leader as well.

"We're in a good position," Towns, before he was ruled out, said, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "It doesn't matter about statistical things, individual things, stuff like that. We still have a great chance to make the playoffs. We just have to capitalize on the opportunity."

The Bucks are getting healthy quickly. Antetokounmpo had a recent bout with knee soreness but appeared to play at full strength Thursday.

Nikola Mirotic made his Bucks debut Thursday after coming over in a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans and recovering from a calf injury. He played 11 minutes and scored eight points against the Celtics.
