Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets: Prediction and Bettig Tips
Milwaukee Bucks need to recover fast
The Bucks need to step up as they host the Nets at Fiserv Forum for the first time in this series. Coach Mike Budenholzer has a lot of work to do before Friday to avoid a third loss which would mean the end of the series. The Bucks are a shadow of the team that played in the regular season and finished third in the Eastern Conference.
Shooting has been the main weakness in the last game in which the Bucks lost 125-86. 44% from the field and 29.6% from the three-point arc is not enough to beat a team like the Nets. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored just 18 points one of his lowest tallies of the season and turned the ball over on three occasions.
The other players on the Bucks team couldn’t fill in as they couldn’t score more than 24 points in any of the four quarters. A lot is expected from the Milwaukee fans and they will surely be the number six player in game three.
The Brooklyn Nets showing they are more than just an offensive team
It was an incredible display of Basketball both offensively and defensively by the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday as they thrashed the Bucks by 39 points. The Nets are shooting the ball in an insane fashion. 50% of the shots from the arc made are too hard to handle for any opposition.
Coach Steve Nash has shut down his team’s critics by showing that they are not just an offensive force which they certainly are. The fact that the Nets have limited a team like the Bucks to just 86 is proof of how efficient their defense is.
James Harden missed the game again but Kevin Durant is playing on a different level and helping his team in any way he can. He is averaging 30.5 points in the two games with Kyrie Irving having his share with 23.5 points per game.
- The Nets are averaging 120 points per game in the series
- The Bucks are averaging 96 points per game in the series
- The Nets made 53.8% of their shots from two-point range
- The Bucks had 16 turnovers in the second game
Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets Prediction
The Bucks will make sure to make most of their home fans and get them into the game to pressure the Nets and get their first win of the series. Nothing worked for the Bucks so far in the two games and coach Budenholzer has to push his team for a huge upgrade in game three
Losing twice in the regular season to the Bucks didn’t mean anything for the Nets as they weren’t at their full strength. With the way they are playing now, the Nets don’t even miss James Harden who is out injured.
We think the Bucks are capable of bouncing back and will go all out to secure an important first win. We will back a Bucks win.
