Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview and Prediction | NBA Playoffs
NBA Eastern Conference Finals Game 5 (Series tied 2-2)
Atlanta Hawks (41-31, 16-20 Away) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (46-26, 26-10 Home)
Date: Thursday, July 1, 2021
Time: 8:30 pm EST
Venue: Fiserv Forum – Milwaukee, WI
The Atlanta Hawks evened the series at two games a piece. However, the story is completely surrounding the Milwaukee Bucks. More specifically, the health of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis avoided severe ligament damage to his knee, but he is listed as doubtful for Game 5.
The Bucks are facing their most daunting and trying time of the season, and things could get worse. Trae Young is listed as a “game-time decision.” In Young’s absence, Bogdan Bogdanovic stepped up with 20 points and six three-pointers. The Bucks may be missing a former MVP and Defensive Player of the Year. If the Hawks don’t have Young or Capela (questionable with an eye injury) they could face elimination in Game 6.
