Disaster struck in Game 4 when Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo went down with a serious knee injury. The Hawks took advantage, leveled the series, and now have the chance to reach the NBA Finals with just two more wins. Trae Young’s health is still in question, but the series is as difficult to predict as ever.
Atlanta Hawks at Milwaukee Bucks (Game 5)

Capable but inconsistent, Khris Middleton has struggled with his scoring all series long. Averaging just 21 points per game on 41.8 shooting from the field, a step up in shot attempts doesn’t seem as if it’ll buoy the two-time All-Stars numbers.
Clearing 27.5 seems unrealistic for Middleton, considering he’s only scored more than 20 points once this series.
One of Jrue Holiday’s most frequent targets on offence is Giannis Antetokounmpo or Brook Lopez for the drop-off. A capable playmaker who can get to the rim, Holiday will collect his fair share of assists.
Unfortunately, Holiday has cleared 10.5 just once in four games. We wouldn’t expect Holiday to break the trend now.
Despite the changes to the lineup, Huerter has stayed rather consistent in his production and his efficiency. He is averaging 6.3 three-pointers per game but making just 1.8 of them.
A disciplined player, Huerter’s attempt rate doesn’t seem as if it’ll increase and his conversion rate doesn’t encourage him to clear 2.5.
Jrue Holiday is going to take on even more of a playmaking burden when he faces the Hawks in Game 5. He was second in usage in Game 4 for the Bucks but was an inefficient 6 of 17 from the field.
While his usage is certainly going to increase, Holiday hasn’t cleared 38.5 once this series and doesn’t seem as if he will.
