ATL: Three-and-D, Keep Up the Pressure!

The Atlanta Hawks surprised many when the full-time buzzer went off for Game 4. Not only did they win, but they did so convincingly. Behind an excellent three-and-d performance, and an inopportune injury for the Bucks, the Hawks are back in this series.

In Game 4 the Hawks converted on 13 of 38 three-point field goal attempts and forced 15 turnovers out of the usually responsible Milwaukee Bucks side.

By sharing the ball and staying disciplined on defence, the Hawks were able to overcome the lack of Trae Young in the lineup. Should they maintain their form, the Hawks can come out with another victory regardless of Young’s participation.

Hawks Key Player: (G) Lou Williams

There is no substitute for veteran experience and Lou Williams showed that in his most recent outing against the Bucks. He put on a classic performance, fitting for one of NBA history’s most talented Sixth Men.

Williams took over Young’s role in the starting lineup and flourished. He posted 21 points, eight assists, and five rebounds while turning the ball over just once. He was ultra-efficient from the field as well, converting on 7 of 9 field goal attempts.

The 15-year NBA veteran was a calming presence for the Hawks in what was a stressful situation without Trae Young. His willingness to take on playmaking responsibilities opened up the entire court for Atlanta and secured them a win.

MIL: Next Man Up

The Milwaukee Bucks lost Giannis Antetokounmpo for the season, but there isn’t any time to mourn his loss. The Bucks have an even series and have two games on their home court. The Bucks’ roster needs to step up their game.

All eyes point to two-time All-Star Khris Middleton. Outside of Antetokounmpo he is Milwaukee’s most capable player on the offensive end. Middleton has carried the Bucks to victories in the past, but never with this much weight on his shoulders.

Of course for the Bucks to win all the pressure can’t just be on Middleton. From the first player on the court to the twelfth man on the bench, the Bucks need to be productive to bring this series home.

Bucks Key Player: (G) Jrue Holiday

The Milwaukee Bucks have a monumental task ahead of them, when they face the Atlanta Hawks without their star man Giannis Antetokounmpo. In his stead, Jrue Holiday will be asked to score and run the offence.

Jrue Holiday did very well in his 38 minutes against the Hawks in Game 4. He contributed 19 points, nine assists, and five rebounds while also connecting on 5 of 6 free throws.

Holiday was a minus-18 on the evening, mostly due to his inefficiency shooting the ball. If he can clean up his shot selection and continue to make plays, the Bucks can overcome the Giannis-sized hole in their squad.
