Atlanta Hawks Form & Team News


Atlanta set the tone for their playoff run with a Game 1 win in New York a month ago and they continue to grab the headlines.

The Hawks made straightforward work of the Knicks with a 4-1 series win and then showed resolve to upset Philadelphia, 4-3, in the last round.

Across those two series they won five times on the road, clinching in New York and Philadelphia, and they will be determined to continue this superb road form in Game 1 with Milwaukee.

Trae Young has undoubtedly been the star of the show for Atlanta, averaging 29 points and 10.4 assists per game while racking up 7 double doubles.

Clint Capela has played his part too, averaging 11.6 rebounds per game so far, while John Collins has become a force in the paint by averaging 11 boards per game over the last six outings.

Young, Capela and Collins should all be good to go in Game 1, and so should Bogan Bogdanovic after he overcame a knee problem to play in Game 7 against Philadelphia.

De’Andre Hunter (knee), Brandon Goodwin (illness) and Cam Reddish (Achilles) are all out though.

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee swept Miami in round one to exorcise the demons of last season, but their meeting with Brooklyn turned into a marathon affair.

The Bucks dropped the first two games, and after a 125-86 blowout defeat in Game 2 their star players, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, faced plenty of criticism.

They silenced their critics in Game 3 as Giannis posted 35 points and 15 rebounds, and Middleton put up 33 points and 14 rebounds. Brook Lopez chipped in 11 rebounds as the Bucks won 86-83.

Giannis followed that up with another strong performance in Game 4 (34 points and 12 rebounds), and that played a decisive part in Milwaukee levelling the series with a 107-96 win.

A 114-108 defeat in Game 5 meant Milwaukee could not afford one more slip-up, and they shut down Brooklyn in a 104-89 win before sealing the series with a 115-111 OT win on the road.

The Bucks emerged from that series unscathed with no new names joining Jordan Nwora (thigh) and Donte DiVincenzo (foot) on the injury report.
