Bucks: Improve on Outside Shooting

The Milwaukee Bucks are at their strongest when their offense is dictating an efficient inside-outside attack.

Out of Milwaukee’s 39 two-point field goals, only three of them were made from outside the paint. The Bucks’ three-point shooters were unable to support them, as they converted on just six of 30 three-point attempts.

To take down the Nets, Milwaukee needs to keep up on the offensive side of the ball. Improving their three-point shot conversion is their best bet.

Bucks Key Player: (G-F) Khris Middleton


The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off of a Game 1 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. The performance of Khris Middleton left the Bucks disappointed.

In Game 1, Middleton posted just 13 points on six of 23 shooting. He contributed in other ways though, collecting 13 rebounds and dishing four assists.

Middleton needs to be more efficient if the Bucks want to take down the Nets. Antetokounmpo and Holiday are performing, but Middleton needs to contribute more to overcome Brooklyn’s scoring pace.

Nets: Keep Moving the Ball

The Brooklyn Nets were dealt a blow in the early phases of Game 1, as James Harden left with injury. They made up for the loss by moving the ball intelligently and converting on available opportunities.

On 46 made field goals, the Brooklyn Nets assisted on 25. Their pace and ball movement overcame the fact that they weren’t incredibly aggressive attacking the rim.

The Bucks are excellent at defending the rim, so Brooklyn will need to maintain the potency of their ball movement. So long as Irving and Durant stay aggressive offensively, they’ll draw enough attention to create opportunities for others.

Nets Key Player: (G) Kyrie Irving


The Brooklyn Nets were able to overcome the Milwaukee Bucks due to the strength of their stars. Despite Harden leaving the game early, Kyrie Irving stepped up his play.

While Harden has taken the role of primary playmaker, Irving stepped into the role without issue in Game 1. Irving posted 25 points, eight assists, and five rebounds on 11 of 26 shooting from the field.

The Nets point guard is more than capable of filling Harden’s shoes at the point of attack. But maintaining a balance between scoring and distributing will be the true key to their success.
