Both top seeds lost in their opening games on Tuesday. I am less worried about Milwaukee than L.A. though.
That is because I am not sure the Magic can repeat what we saw in game one of the series. Are you? The oddsmakers do not look convinced.
The Magic got the win and looked good. Kudos, but can they do it again. If you will recall they beat the Raptors in game one last season before getting stomped on the rest of the way.
It was a little more impressive because Aaron Gordon did not play. Though I am not sure they would have gotten more from him than they did Gary Clark filling in. Can they really exect Clark to continue to play that way though?
I am a big fan of Nikola Vucevic and game one showed why. I never understand why they get away from him and maybe the win helps them be more focused.
This one looks like it will be all about the first quarter. Will Orlando be ready to withstand what has to be a strong effort from Milwaukee in game two..
People like to say that the NBA is a make or miss league and that is what we saw in game one of the Bucks Magic series. Milwaukee missed a lot.
What we also might have saw is an effect of their being no homecourt for these playoffs. Milwaukee looked lifeless the whole game.
Giannis got his points but he has to take those perimeter shots that they are giving him. At least one per quarter, even if he misses them all.
The rest of the team has to be better. They really looked uninterested and not like a top seed at all. Eric Bledsoe has to remember where his bread is buttered.
The Bucks can win this series without much from Khris Middleton but I have always questioned his game. Sure he puts up numbers but he is not reliable.
Getting down 2-0 it not an option for this team. As it is I think the future of the program hinges on these playoffs (and whether Giannis stays long term). They might be a little too tight.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Per the intro the results from the first game are not moving the needle much for this one. Milwaukee is still a very heavy favourite.
If you like Orlando you might want to wait because similar to last game you might get some Bucks money that pushes this to +14.
The total is pushed up too a little which is interesting. I am expecting the Bucks to score more for this one but at the same time I am not sure the Magic can keep it up.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Under 227.5
I like the Bucks to win and cover most likely, but more than that I like the Magic’s offence to crash and for them not to crack 100 points.
That puts a lot of pressure on Milwaukee to score a ton to cash the over here. If they are a little tight at any point that is not going to happen.
Zig zagging and other handicapping norms are going to be interesting to watch in the bubble.
