Milwaukee Bucks @ Atlanta Hawks Live Stream & Tips 


The Milwaukee Bucks take on the Atlanta Hawks in game no.3 of their Eastern Conference Finals best-of-seven game series on Monday, June 28. Right now this series is perfectly poised at one win each following Milwaukee’s 125-91 victory over Atlanta on Friday. Three days earlier, Atlanta had opened the series by edging Milwaukee 116-113.

The winner of this series will take on the winner of the Western Conference Playoff Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the LA Clippers, which at the time of this article was being led by Phoenix 2-1. Interestingly, whichever team out of the four that are left standing in this competition triumphs, it will be – in the case of Phoenix and the Clippers – either their first ever NBA Championship, or their first for a very long time; Milwaukee’s only title was won in 1971, while Atlanta’s solitary NBA championship happened in 1958.

While Atlanta barely edged Milwaukee in the opening game of this series 116-113, the Bucks comprehensively thrashed the Hawks 125-91, a 34 point margin of victory. Key to Milwaukee’s win was their 6’11” 250 lb Greek sensation, 26-year-old Giannis Antetokounmpo, who leads their stats this season for points-per-game (28.9) and rebounds with 13.2.  

I’m backing the Milwaukee Bucks to win Game no.3 of this series with a victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. This will be a much closer affair than Milwaukee’s victory on Friday, and the Bucks will take this game by a margin of 10 points or less.

Head to Head


The Atlanta Hawks in the Milwaukee Bucks have played each other 226 times in NBA regular-season games. Currently Milwaukee leads their head-to-head 114-112. In their last 10 matches covering the previous three seasons, the Bucks lead 8-2. Atlanta and Milwaukee played each other three times in 2021, with the Bucks having the edge 2-1. However, in their final meeting of the regular-season in April, Atlanta defeated Milwaukee 111-104.

Milwaukee Bucks Form


The Milwaukee Bucks finished their 2021 regular-season third in the Eastern Conference with a record of 46 wins against 26 defeats. Milwaukee headed into the playoffs by going 8-2 in their final 10 games of the regular-season. Milwaukee carried that excellent form into their Eastern Conference Playoffs first Round series against the Miami Heat, comprehensively thrashing their opponents 4-0. 

Milwaukee had far greater struggle in their Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Brooklyn Nets, finally coming through 4-3 with a 115-111 overtime victory in which Milwaukee’s MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 40 points. The Greek giant was also crucial to Milwaukee’s victory over Atlanta on Friday, and if the Hawks wish to make this series competitive, they need to figure out how to cope with Antetokounmpo.

Atlanta Hawks Form


The Atlanta Hawks finished fifth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 41 wins against 31 defeats. Atlanta won seven of their final eight games of the regular-season including the last four, which put them in a winning frame of mind as they entered the playoffs. That was reflected in their comprehensive 4-1 victory over the New York Knicks in the first round.

Atlanta win given much chance of victory over the Eastern Conference top seeds the Philadelphia 76ers in the semifinals, but that’s exactly what they did, overcoming Philadelphia in a titanic series 4-3. 

Throughout these playoffs and for much of the regular-season, 22-year-old Trae Young has been crucial to Atlanta success. Despite Young’s relative lack of size (Young is 6’1” and 180 lbs), he leads Atlanta’s stats for PPG with 29.8 and for assists with 9.9. Young scored a staggering 48 points during Atlanta’s 116-130 series opening victory over Milwaukee last Wednesday.

Verdict

Both the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks are blessed with highly talented young Power Forwards as their MVPs. Atlanta have the supremely skilful if slightly undersized Trae Young, while Milwaukee have the hulking Greek powerhouse that is Giannis Antetokounmpo.
 
Two crucial things happened during Milwaukee’s victory over Atlanta on Friday; Antetokounmpo was the game’s top scorer with 25 points, while the normally irrepressible Young was restricted to just 15 points. If Atlanta don’t figure out a way of controlling Antetokounmpo and giving Young the freedom of movement to do his thing, this series might not last much longer.

I’m backing the Milwaukee Bucks to score a hard-fought victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday by a margin of 10 points or less, in a matchup that will feature around 220 points.
