Milwaukee Bucks @ Atlanta Hawks Live Stream & Tips


The Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks will face-off for game no.4 in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday, June 30. On Monday, Milwaukee took a 2-1 lead in this series with a 113-102 victory over Atlanta, as had previously been correctly predicted by bets.com.au.

This writer had speculated that Atlanta might struggle to contain Milwaukee’s massive 6’11” 250 lb power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. 26-year-old Greek sensation Antetokounmpo has been on fire this season and had continued that form into the playoffs. However on Monday it was the turn of Khris Middleton to shine for the Bucks with 38 points. 

Atlanta’s Trae Young scored 35 points for the Hawks and it might’ve been more had he not injured his ankle in the third quarter. Ironically both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Trae Young are being monitored by their teams because of injuries incurred in Monday’s game, and neither is 100% guaranteed to play on Wednesday.

A deeply concerning factor for Atlanta is that they have now lost two straight games Milwaukee by margins of greater than 10 points. They were thrashed by 34 clear points on the previous Friday as the Bucks won by 125-91, and lost by an 11-point margin on Monday. However going into the fourth quarter the Hawks led 85-83, but by then Trae Young’s ankle injury had rendered him ineffective, allowing Milwaukee to cruise to victory.

In the likelihood of Trae Young making a full recovery, I’m backing the Atlanta Hawks to level the series at 2-2 with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, Atlanta winning the 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


After losing the opening game of this series to the Atlanta Hawks last Wednesday by the narrow margin of 116-113, the Milwaukee Bucks have now fired back with two convincing victories, winning by margins of 34 and 11 points respectively. What’s more, unlike Atlanta who rely heavily on the points scoring talents of their brilliant power forward Trae Young, Milwaukee have two players that can hit more than 30 points in a game in Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

Another stat in Milwaukee’s favor is that they are 4-1 in their last five matches, while Atlanta are 2-3. Going into what could turn out to be a crucial game in this series, momentum would seem to be very much in Milwaukee’s favor.

Atlanta Hawks Form


The Atlanta Hawks desperately need to win on Wednesday as a 1-3 deficit against a team as confident and dangerous as the Milwaukee Bucks are right now might be a mountain even they can’t climb. The Hawks of course showed incredible fighting spirit in their Eastern Conference semifinal victory over the top seeded Philadelphia 76ers.

Twice in that series the Hawks had to battle back from the brink of elimination, first when trailing 1-2 in matches and trailing 62-49 in game no.4, and then after Philadelphia leveled the series at 3-3, taking it into “sudden death”. In that final game Atlanta were relentless, edging three of the four quarters for a 103-96 victory. The Hawks will need to display all of that fighting spirit on Wednesday to prevent this series running away from them.

Verdict

After scoring back-to-back victories by margins of 10 points or more, the Milwaukee Bucks would appear likely to continue their domination of the Atlanta Hawks during these Eastern Conference Finals. The score is 2-1 in Milwaukee’s favor, and while Atlanta won the opening game last Wednesday, it was by a narrow margin of just three points.

However, had it not been for an unfortunate injury incurred by Atlanta’s Trae Young in the third quarter of Monday’s game, chances are that the Hawks – who led 85-83 at the time - would have increased their lead and not lost the match.
 
As Young’s twisted ankle will hopefully be healed by Wednesday, I’m backing Atlanta to win this game by a margin of 10 points or less in a matchup that will feature around 210 points.
