The Bucks and Raptors will become the first 6-0 NBA teams to meet
The NBA will make history tonight as two of the top Eastern Conference teams will go head-to-head tonight.
Per @EliasSports: Tonight’s match up between the Bucks (6-0) and Raptors (6-0) will mark the first time in NBA history that two teams enter with a record of 6-0 or better. I’ll be covering the game for @ESPNNBA.

The Bucks tweeted the announcement this morning.
Antetokounmpo was evaluated again yesterday and reported new symptoms along with a lingering headache. Got that reason, he was placed into the concussion protocol and will miss tonight’s game vs. Toronto.

Despite the fact these two superstars out of action tonight, this game still has an intriguing matchup to it. Toronto has already won a game without Leonard.
This will be the first time this season the Bucks will be without Antetokounmpo.
It will be interesting to see how the Bucks do without their number one option. The Raptors, despite not having Leonard, are still a very tough team to beat.
The Raptors are one of the most complete teams from top to bottom in the NBA.
This matchup tonight could possibly be a preview of an Eastern Conference Finals matchup down the line in May.
This is still an intriguing matchup regardless tonight because of how good these teams are and how stacked each team is.
Despite a lot offense early on this season, tonight will possibly be the night where both teams are held under 100 points. These teams, especially the Raptors are very good defensively.
However, the Bucks are ranked fifth in the NBA in points per game, as they are averaging 119.3 per game this season. The Raptors are ranked seventh in the league in points per game at 116.8.
