Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets Predictions & Tips


Milwaukee can leave Brooklyn with a place in the next round.

The Bucks are 0-3 in Brooklyn in this series, but the Nets are not at full strength with James Harden hurting and Kyrie Irving out.

Kevin Durant has been a one-man band to keep Brooklyn in it but he is getting very little help.

Durant will do his best here, but it could be in vain as Milwaukee finally get their road win at the best possible time.

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee ensured their season would last at least one more game with their victory in Game 6.

Having swept Miami 4-0 in the previous round, the Bucks have had, as expected, a much tougher time of it against Brooklyn.

They dropped the first two games as their big two, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, and faced plenty of questions after 115-107 and 125-86 defeats.

They but they silenced their critics with double doubles in Game 3. Giannis posted 35 points and 15 rebounds, Middleton put up 33 points and 14 rebounds, and Brook Lopez chipped in 11 rebounds 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.

They could not contain Kevin Durant in Game 5, resulting in a 114-108 defeat, but they slowed him down enough in Game 6 to secure a 104-89 win that saw Giannis rack up 30 points and 17 rebounds, and Middleton register 38 points and 10 boards.

It is now winner-takes-all in Game 7 and Milwaukee have no fresh injuries, with only Jordan Nwora (thigh) and Donte DiVincenzo (foot) out.

Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Brooklyn’s over-reliance on Kevin Durant came back to haunt them in Game 6 and now they face a must-win Game 7 meeting with Milwaukee.

The Nets made a winning start to the series as 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.

Already without James Harden, the Nets then saw Kyrie Irving go down injured in Game 4 and no other player managed to hit double digits aside from Durant (29). The Nets lost 107-96 to surrender the lead.

A hobbled Harden returned for Game 5 and made little impact, but he did not need to as Durant almost singled-handedly dragged Brooklyn to a 114-108 win, putting up 49 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists in a sensational triple double.

Durant could not repeat that feat as Brooklyn lost Game 6, 104-89, and the Nets will be looking for a big performance from him again with Harden still struggling and Irving (ankle) out.
