MIL: Launch from Range
The Milwaukee Bucks aren’t shy in regards to shooting the ball. In Game 4 against the Nets, they were dangerous from three and punished the Nets defenders.
Milwaukee converted on 16 of their 47 three-point attempts in Game 4 against the Nets. In fact, six of their eight players that made a three hit at least two.
The Nets look as if they’ll struggle on the offensive side of the ball outside of Kevin Durant. If the Bucks want to control the game early, they need to punish the Nets with their three-point threat.
Bucks Key Player: (F) Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Milwaukee Bucks are back level and Giannis Antetokounmpo is back on track to help them bring the series back in their control.
In Game 4 against the Nets Antetokounmpo posted 34 points, 12 rebounds, and three assists, on 14 of 26 shooting from the field.
Antetokounmpo’s three-point and free throw shooting is still dreadful, but he’s been more than effective in the paint. To take control of the series, Antetokounmpo needs to establish his dominance.
BKN: Time for the Supporting Cast to Step Up
The Brooklyn Nets are having a nightmare of a second round. Formerly up 2-0, the series is now drawn and both James Harden and Kyrie Irving are out with injury. It’s time for the Brooklyn role players to step up their game.
In Game 4 against the Bucks, the only double-digit scorers were Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving – who played just 17 minutes. The rest of the team combined for just 57 of the team’s 96 points, without another double-digit scorer.
The Brooklyn Nets have weapons available to them, but they need to convert when Kevin Durant needs them. If not, the Bucks will run away with this game.

The Nets are in a bit of trouble and the weight of Brooklyn’s success rests on Kevin Durant’s shoulders.
In Game 4 against the Bucks, Durant posted 28 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists on 9 of 25 shooting from the field.
With Irving and Harden likely out for this game, Durant will be the focus of the Nets’ offence. While his teammates need to support him, Durant needs to have a big game to make up the difference.
