Atlanta Hawks @ Milwaukee Bucks Live Stream and Tips


The Atlanta Hawks will take on Milwaukee Bucks in the first game of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoff Finals on Thursday, June 24. This will be the first of a best-of-seven series, with the first team to win four games progressing to the NBA Championship Finals, where they will face the winners of the Western Conference Finals between Phoenix Suns and the LA Clippers. Phoenix currently lead this series 2-0.

Both Atlanta and Milwaukee had to go the distance in their Eastern Conference semifinals, with the Hawks edging the Philadelphia 76ers by four games to three, and the Bucks defeating the Brooklyn Nets, also by 4-3. By comparison, in the Western Conference semis the Clippers defeated the Utah Jazz 4-2 while Phoenix thrashed the Denver Nuggets 4-0.

During the regular season Atlanta and Milwaukee played each other three times, with the Bucks ahead 2-1. The truth is over the past three seasons, Milwaukee have dominated Atlanta by eight wins to two. However in their most recent meeting in April of this year, was the Hawks who triumphed 111-104.
Because of that result plus the fact that Atlanta eliminated the top seeds in the Philadelphia 76ers, I’m backing the Hawks to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday by a margin of 10 points or less.

  • Hawks finished fifth in EC Conference
  • Hawks finished 41-31
  • Bucks finished third in EC Conference
  • Bucks finished 46-26
