Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks: Prediction and Betting Tips

01:30, Jul 02 2021
Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks prediction for the NBA playoffs clash at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. After both teams won two games each, the Bucks host the Hawks in game five of the NBA Eastern Conference finals in a crucial game for both teams. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Big concerns for the Bucks as they loss was double

Game four made headlines for all the wrong reasons as another injury was the main news and it concerned the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo got injured badly as he was landing after a rebound and he hurt his knee. That was in the third quarter and Giannis stayed out for the remaining of the game as things changed drastically in the Hawks’ favor.

It is still unknown whether the Bucks star will play in game 5 as more tests will be done on his knee. But the Bucks need to come up with answers in case their scoring and defensive leader will be absent. During game four they were completely outplayed by the Hawks who took the liberty of attacking the paint more freely as the Bucks defense collapsed.

Bucks Key Stats

  • The Bucks are averaging 109.8 points per game in the series
  • The field goal percentage of the Bucks is 47% 
  • 29% is the Bucks average from the arc in the series

The Hawks showed they are more than a one-man team

This was easily the Hawks best game of the series and probably of the playoffs as coach Nate McMillan’s team overcame Trae Young’s absence from the game and delivered a lesson in group basketball as they passed the ball around and looked for easy shots and took advantage of Giannis’s injury exit in the perfect way.

63% was the Hawks percentage from mid-range. Trae Young’s substitute Lou Williams was inserted and he didn’t disappoint his coach with a great performance scoring 21 points accompanied by eight assists and five rebounds. The same kind of performance is needed in game five though especially from the bench players who had a 35 point contribution.

Hawks Key Stats

  • The Hawks are averaging 104.8 points per game in the series
  • The free throw percentage of the Hawks is 77%
  • The average field goal of the Hawks is 47% in the Series

Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks Prediction

This series couldn’t have a more dramatic turnaround than it did in game four. It is not known yet until the time od writing this article whether Giannis and Young will play in game five. One thing is for sure though, the Hawks looked a much better side without those two playing.

With so much at stake, we think both teams will focus on strengthening their defense. The Bucks need adjustments if Giannis is not going to play. The Hawks seemed very comfortable without Trae young and that can’t happen in Milwaukee from the Bucks’ point of view.

We will bet on total points in the game and we think we may see a lower scoring than their averages.
