The Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks do battle, for their first head to head matchup of this young season. The Bucks are riding a one game loss in their most recent game of the year. A 96-89 loss against the Boston Celtics. Atlanta has lost five straight. Most recently taking a loss at home against the Nuggets, 105-100.
Last season, both teams played each other four times. The Hawks won the series, 3-1. The Bucks won their most recent meeting against each other on March 24th. Milwaukee edged the Hawks, 100-97 in Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Bucks are looking to be taken serious this season. The Bucks finished in the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference, only to get eliminated in the first round last season. This year the Bucks are back to prove they are a number five seed or better this year.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is looking like a top five player in the NBA right now. Antetokounmpo is averaging 35 points, five assists and 10 rebounds per game this year through five games. Antetokounmpo is the MVP through the first two weeks of the season.
Besides Antetokounmpo’s play this year, the Bucks second year point guard and reigning rookie of the year, Malcom Brogden is averaging 15.8 points per game this year. Forward Khris Middelton has also played well. He is averaging 15.2 points per game on the season.
The Bucks have been playing better defense under head coach Jason Kidd. Milwaukee is allowing 103 points per game this season. Good enough for 15th in the league this year.
As Antetokounmpo goes, so do the Bucks. Look for Milwaukee to give the Hawks fits defensively in this game.
The Atlanta Hawks are struggling to find an identity through the first two weeks of the season. Atlanta won their first game of the year against the winless Dallas Mavericks, 117-111. Since then, the team has dropped five in a row. Atlanta has no locker room leadership on the roster. Right now the Hawks rank 25th in points scored this season.
If Marco Belinelli is your teams second leading scorer, then you should be very alarmed about what direction the team is going this year. Belinelli is averaging 15 points per game this season and Dennis Schroder leads the Hawks in scoring with 22.5 points per game this year.
If the Hawks are going to make a run at a playoff spot this season. It will have to start with free agency or a trade. The Hawks current roster is not good enough to finish better than 10th in the Eastern Conference. Meaning they are one of the worst teams in the NBA.
