Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee exorcised the demons of last year’s playoff loss to Miami in convincing fashion.

The Bucks edged Miami 109-107 in Game 1 as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holliday both had double doubles and Khris Middleton put up 27 points.

Their Game 2 win was more emphatic as Giannis put up 31 points and 13 rebounds in a 132-98 rout of the Heat.

Another ‘Greek Freak’ double double and 22 points from Middleton then led the Bucks to a 113-84 win.

Milwaukee then wrapped up the series with another blowout win that saw Giannis record a triple double and Middleton a double double.

That Game 4 win was their 15th in 19 games.

Milwaukee have lost Donte DiVincenzo (foot) for the rest of the season and he joins Thanasis Antetokounmpo (knee) on the sidelines.

Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Brooklyn did not sweep the series with Boston, but it was a show of dominance from the favourites.

With Kyrie Irving, James Harden and Kevin Durant all available they racked up a bunch of points.

Durant put up 32 and Irving 29 as they edged the Celtics 104-93 in Game 1.

Durant, Irving and Harden then combined for 61 points and Joe Harris chipped in with 25 as the Nets rolled to a 130-108 win in Game 2.

Harden ran riot with 41 points and Durant was hot on his heels with 39 in Game 3 but that was not enough to prevent Brooklyn from losing 125-119 in Game 3.

They issued an immediate response though as Durant (42), Irving (39) and Harden (23) shot down Boston in a 141-126 win.

Harden, Irving and Durant then combined for 83 points as the Nets sealed the series 123-109.

That was Brooklyn’s ninth win in their last 10 games.

Harden, Irving and Durant are all good to go here, but Alize Johnson (foot) is day-to-day along with Jeff Green (foot).

Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) remains the only long-term absentee.
