Live updates: Warriors vs. Bucks, Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Join us for live news and analysis Thursday at 7:30 p.m. when the Warriors face one of the Eastern Conference’s top teams in the Milwaukee Bucks at Oracle.

If the Warriors (10-1) are to win their ninth straight game, they’ll have to do it without All-Star power forward Draymond Green (sprained toe, foot), who will sit out. In addition, Golden State will also be without Shaun Livingston again, who is nursing a sore foot.

Only the Warriors have scored more points per game this season than the Bucks, who at 120 points per game have scored 3.5 less than Golden State. As usual, All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo is the stiffest challenge awaiting a Milwaukee opponent. He’s averaging 25.8 points, 13.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game, but his outside shot has been lacking as he’s last in the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage at 9.5 percent (2-of-21).

The Bucks (8-2) kicked off their road trip with a 118-103 loss at Portland on Tuesday, but beat the Warriors the last time they visited Oracle in March. Antetokounmpo scored 32 in the Bucks’ 116-107 win over the Warriors last year.

The Warriors, meanwhile, have had two days off since beating Memphis 117-101 on Monday night.
