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 that good form continued in Game 1 of Eastern Conference Finals.

Trae Young has undoubtedly been the star of the show for Atlanta en route to this meeting with Milwaukee, averaging 29 points and 10.4 assists per game, while racking up 7 double doubles.

Young topped all of that in Game 1 as he poured in 48 points and racked up 11 assists. That, along with a combined 34 rebounds from Clint Capela & John Collins, resulted in a 116-113 win.

Atlanta will now look to make it back-to-back road wins and they will have Young, Capela & Collins all ready to go.

Bogdan Bogdanovic is back from a knee injury, but De’Andre Hunter (knee), Brandon Goodwin (illness) and Cam Reddish (Achilles) are all out.

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.

Their Eastern Conference Finals clash with Atlanta did not get off to the best of starts though despite a Gianns double double (34 points, 12 rebounds) and 33 points from Jrue Holliday.

The Bucks fell to a 116-113 defeat and the pressure will be on them to bounce back immediately before they head out to Atlanta for Games 3 & 4.

Jordan Nwora (thigh) is no longer listed on the injury report, but Donte DiVincenzo (foot) is out.
