Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets Predictions & Tips


Milwaukee can leave Brooklyn with their first lead of the series.

The Bucks have turned it around with back-to-back wins and Brooklyn are now reeling from big injuries.

Kyrie Irving has joined James Harden on the sidelines and that is a huge blow for the Nets.

It is a huge boost for Milwaukee who can cover and maybe keep Brooklyn below 100 again.

  • Milwaukee Bucks have covered -4.5 in Games 3 & 4
  • Milwaukee Bucks have kept Brooklyn Nets below 100 in back-to-back games
  • Milwaukee Bucks have won 4 of the last 6 meetings with Brooklyn
  • Brooklyn Nets will be without James Harden & Kyrie Irving
  • Brooklyn Nets had only 3 players hit double digits for points in Games 3 & 4
  • Games 2, 3 & 4 all produced -217.5 total points

Head To Head


  • Milwaukee Bucks lead the all-time series 115-84
  • Milwaukee Bucks lead the all-time playoff series 11-8

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee have issued the perfect response to losing their first two games in this playoff series.

Having swept Miami 4-0 in the previous round, the Bucks found themselves behind the 8-Ball after their first two games in Brooklyn.

Milwaukee’s big two – Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton – were facing plenty of questions after they lost 115-107 in Game 1 and were then blown out 125-86 in Game 2.

Giannis and Middleton answered those questions with double doubles in Game 3.

‘The Greek Freak’ posted 35 points and 15 rebounds while Middleton put up 33 points and 14 rebounds. Brook Lopez chipped in 11 rebounds as the Bucks dominated the paint, resulting in an 86-83 victory.

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.

The Bucks will now seek a first win in Brooklyn in this series but they will have to do it without Jordan Nwora (thigh) and Donte DiVincenzo (foot).

Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Brooklyn’s quest to become NBA champions is threatening to fall apart in this series with Milwaukee.

The Nets made a winning start to the series as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combined for 54 points and Blake Griffin racked up a double double in a 115-107 victory.

Durant was proving to be a massive headache for the Bucks and in Game 2 he racked up 32 point in what ended up being a blowout win for Brooklyn, 125-86.

KD shone again in Game 3 with 30 points and 10 rebounds, but he got very little help from elsewhere in that one, resulting a narrow 86-83 defeat that saw the Nets produce their worst scoring performance of the season so far.

A response was needed in Game 4, but Kyrie Irving was lost to injury during the game and no other player managed to hit double digits aside from Durant (29). The Nets lost 107-96.

Irving (ankle) is expected to missed Game 5 too and although James Harden is nearing a return, this latest matchup with Milwaukee could come too soon for him.

Verdict

Milwaukee have swung the series firmly in their favour and Brooklyn now have major injury concerns.

Losing Harden was bad enough. Now Irving is out. Durant will not be able to do it all himself, so the Bucks could seal a huge road win here.
