The Milwaukee Bucks came away on the losing end in what was a blowout loss to the Charlotte Hornets in their season opener at home. While the Brooklyn Nets also came away losers in what was a close game to the Boston Celtics.
But now with both teams suffering early, they’ll look to take away some positives from their previous outings hoping to use that to their advantage in this up in coming match up.
The Brooklyn Nets put up a staggering 117 points against a tough Boston Celtics squad that ranked 4th in defensive efficiency last season.
Boston had trouble containing the Brooklyn Nets attack because they consistently kept the ball moving, and found open shots for teammates.
That was well evident by their overall scoring output from almost every player. The Brooklyn Nets had 5 different guys score in double digits, making it hard for the opposing defense to recognize who to stop.
Coach Kenny Atkinson was brought in to instill this type of team-oriented basketball and it proved to be a success in their first game, despite coming away with the loss.
The Nets were supposed to be the laughing stock of the NBA this season. But it seems they didn’t get the memo, and their play is showing that as they’re looking to be taken seriously this year.
Last game Brook Lopez didn’t even get going, as the team looked to spread the floor and move the ball, going 1-7 from the field and scoring 7 points on the night.
So look for him to play better in the next outing. But the good thing that came of it, was that the team got to see that other players will be able to help ease some of the scoring burden off of him.
The Milwaukee Bucks should really look to redeem themselves after a poor showing in their loss to the Charlotte Hornets. Through three quarters of play they had trouble keeping up with their adversary, giving up a 83-66 lead going into the final frame of action.
However, despite that the Milwaukee Bucks charged back with a strong fourth quarter of play. But by then it was already too late, as they fell into too deep of a deficit in the early goings making it hard to come back from (final score 107-96.)
Giannis Antetokounmpo had himself quite the game, scoring 31 points, hauling in 9 rebounds and dishing out 5 assists. As usual he was everywhere on the floor doing it all for the team.
But rough bench play and little to no help on the offensive end, aside from Matthew Dellavedova (scored 11 points) and Jabari Parker (13 points) put the team in a hole.
That cannot happen next game, especially with their second unit. Greg Monroe went 5-14 from the field last game. With Justin Hamilton guarding him next match he needs to take advantage of that and dominate down low.
Hamilton is not going to be able to stop him, and the next option besides him is Brook Lopez. An I doubt he has any chance in slowing down the big man from Georgetown.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Although the Brooklyn Nets have virtually a new roster this season, they showed last game that they know how to play together.
An despite the fact that the Milwaukee Bucks are younger and arguably more talented, they just don’t know how to consistently win yet as a team.
This is a defensive unit that was ranked in the top ten in the league during the 2014-15 season. But ever since then, they just haven’t gotten back to that style of play.
So look for the Brooklyn Nets to take advantage of their defensive shortcomings this game.

Brooklyn scored 117 points against one of the elite defensive units in the league. That’s why they should easily score more than 100 points against a less intimidating defense in the Milwaukee Bucks.
