Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips
Atlanta Hawks looking for a much-needed victory
Despite Trae Young’s 35 points in game three, the Atlanta Hawks couldn’t keep their lead when it mattered in a match they could have won if they hadn’t played so poorly in the fourth quarter. The Hawks made just seven of their shots from 18 attempts in the final quarter and that paved the way for the Bucks to outscore the home side by 30-17.
Young suffered an ankle injury but continued to play the game. Coach Nate McMillan will hope his star player will be fit for game four as they need a victory before the series goes back to Milwaukee. Other than worrying about young’s health, McMillan must make sure his team commits fewer turnovers as the Bucks scored 16 points off them.
Hawks Key Stats
- The average points scored by the Hawks in the series is 103
- The field goal percentage of the Hawks is 46%
- 12.9 is the number of turnovers by the Hawks per game
Milwaukee Bucks taking back control of the series
Khris Middleton played a big part in the Bucks game three win. After two quiet games, the 29-year-old forward scored his playoff record-tying 38 points accompanied by 11 rebounds. In the fourth quarter, Middleton scored 20 points alone, more than the whole Hawks team combined.
It was a close game in which the Bucks were trailing until the third quarter when they made a run towards the end and completely dominated the fourth especially by Middleton who made four three points and led the Bucks helped by Giannis Antetokounmpo to a very crucial win.
Bucks Key Points
- The Bucks are averaging117 points per game in the series
- The average field goal percentage of the Bucks is 49%
- The free throw percentage of the Bucks is 64%
Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
Game three of the Hawks vs Bucks series was an example of how a game can shift drastically due to certain incidents or a player’s sudden change of form.
Trae Young’s ankle injury could have been the reason for the Hawks’ sudden decline in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Middleton’s incredible display at end of the game and how he carried his team to victory was a turning point.
Much depends on Trae Young’s injury and how fit he is to be as effective as possible and help his team to tie the series. We will bet on the total scored points in this game and predict that we will see another low-scoring game.
