Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips
Atlanta Hawks to stay in the series with a home win
The Hawks couldn’t put on the same performance they did in game four and lost the match after playing without Trae Young for the second match. Young warmed up with his team put the pain in his ankle was too much to bear and had to watch the game from the bench. Only Bogdan Bogdanovich scored over 20 points from the Hawks with 28.
Without Trae Young, the Hawks have Bogdanovich as the next best ball handler but the Serb was injured earlier in the playoffs and is restricted in his mobility on the court. He scored seven three-pointers in game five and if he can keep the same scoring form in game six, coach McMillan will be content, and with some help from others like in game four, the Hawks can push for a decider.
Hawks Key Stats
- The Hawks are averaging 106.2 points per game in the series
- The three-point average of the Hawks is 33%
- The turnover average of the Hawks is 12.4 per game
Milwaukee Bucks one game away from the finals
The Bucks bounced back from their defeat in game four and they also played without their star player Giannis Antetokoumnpo. All of the first five players of the Bucks stepped up their game with four of them scoring over 22 points. But the MVP of the game was Brook Lopez who scored career-high in the playoffs 33 points.
The game was reversed from game four as the Bucks this time moved the ball crisply around the court to create space for Lopez to score easy dunks and lay-ups under the paint. Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton added 25 and 26 points which also helped the Bucks to win game five and stand just one game away from the NBA finals.
Bucks Key Stats
- The Bucks are averaging 112.4 points per game in the series
- The three-point average of the Bucks is 29% in the series
- 48% is the field goal percentage of the Bucks
Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
Both the Hawks and the Bucks proved they can win without their star players and sent a clear message to their opponents that with teamwork they can overcome any difficulty or injury.
The series is becoming very unpredictable but with the Bucks now just one game away from the series victory, the Hawks need to bounce back in game six in Atlanta as they did in game four.
We predict the Hawks to win game six and force game seven in Milwaukee on Monday. Of course, a lot depends on whether Giannis and Young will play but in any case, we will risk the bet.
