Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips
Brooklyn Nets need big improvements to secure victory
It has to be said that despite the Brooklyn Nets was hit by injuries, they have to be credited for challenging the Bucks neck-to-neck in the semi-finals of the Eastern Conference. Before the start of the series, the Nets were the favorites but injuries to James Harden and Kyrie Irving have minimized their power and have relied on the heroics of Kevin Durant.
James Harden played in the last two matches but with very low profile efficiency. Harden scored 16 points in game six with 3-6 from the arc. Kevin Durant was as usual the best scorer of his team with 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Steve Nash’s team needs to improve in game seven especially from the arc as they made just 30% of their shots.
Nets Key Points
- The Nets are averaging 103.7 points per game in the series
- 36% is the percentage of the Nets efficiency from the arc
- The field goal percentage of the Nets is 45%
Milwaukee Bucks to maintain their form in the deciding game
Having played one of their best games in the playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks won game six after some great defensive performance. The Bucks dominated the paint with 51 rebounds of which 15 of them were offensive that allowed them to score 46 points. Coach Budenholzer had divided his player’s tasks in a very effective manner.
Khris Middleton had an incredible game shooting from the arc by making 11-16 from the arc and scoring game-high 38 points, meanwhile, Giannis Anterokounmpo scored all of his 30 points within the arc as the Greek power center didn’t attempt any shot from downtown. As the Bucks travel to New York for game seven, their confidence will be high and with a similar performance might reach their goal of getting the job done.
Bucks Key Points
- The Bucks have an average of 99.7 points per game in the series
- 44% is the Bucks field goal average
- The Bucks are grabbing 20 offensive rebounds per game
Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
All analysts anticipated this series to be a close one and it can’t get any closer than this. A playoff seventh game is always the best attraction for NBA fans and we have a cracker in our hands. Both teams showed in the six games that they can overcome any difficulty.
If James Harden gets 70% of his scoring ability back to help Kevin Durant offensively, the Nets will be very tough to beat. They will be backed by their fans and that is a big plus in this kind of match.
On the other hand, if Middleton and Giannis continue the way they played offensively and the rest of the Bucks do their homework defensively, the Bucks are in with a big chance. It lies in very small details to decide the winner of this match.
We won’t risk predicting the winner of this game instead the total points in the game is a good bet as we think it will be a low one.
