How Can the Bucks Beat the Nets?

The Milwaukee Bucks are in for a difficult night when they face off against the Brooklyn Nets. The best thing they can do is enforce their game, a fast-paced offence predicated on the dominance of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Brooklyn Nets don’t own one of the stronger defences in the NBA, but they’ve beefed up their roster since the NBA trade deadline. Brooklyn now ranks 10th in the NBA in two-point field goal percentage, opting to pack the paint and force threes.

Milwaukee is now ranked 10th in the league in fast-break points per game at 13.3. Despite dropping out of the top 5 in fast-break points from last season, Milwaukee’s pace (8th in the league) is what will set them up for success.

Bucks Key Player: (F) Giannis Antetokounmpo

The reigning NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo will be a crucial player to the Bucks’ chances in this game. When he’s on his game, Antetokounmpo is the kind of player who can overcome even the toughest of defences.

In his last game, a win over the Philadelphia 76ers, Giannis Antetokounmpo was dominant. He posted 40 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 blocks in 37 minutes of play. When Antetokounmpo is able to get into the paint, he is almost unstoppable – evidenced by his 16 of 24 shooting night.

The Brooklyn Nets are one of the better teams in the league at protecting the rim, so Antetokounmpo will need to show off his playmaking if he can’t find a finish. Antetokounmpo’s shooting has never been his strong suit, but being able to keep the Nets honest from deep can open up Milwaukee’s entire game.

How Can the Nets Beat the Bucks?

The Brooklyn Nets will finally be able to field a team with both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant against the Bucks. While scoring will be on their mind, the toughness of the Milwaukee Bucks will need to be matched by Brooklyn.

The Milwaukee Bucks may not be the biggest team in the NBA, but they are the most tenacious. They rank second overall in rebounding and get to the line at the 6th highest rate in the NBA. While most of their offence goes through Antetokounmpo, the players that surround him are efficient with their opportunities.

With the 4th best shooting efficiency in the NBA, Brooklyn looks to be a decent match on paper. Due to their excellent mid-range play the Nets look like a good match against Milwaukee’s tough defence. Having scoring aces like Irving and Durant only improves their chances.

Nets Key Player: (G) Kyrie Irving

The Brooklyn Nets have finally been given the clear to allow Kyrie Irving to compete in the state of New York. Based on his performance last time he played the Bucks, his scoring ability will be welcome against Milwaukee’s tough defence.

Last time Irving faced the Bucks, the Nets were able to earn a 126-123 victory. Irving posted 38 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals in 39 minutes of play. He was masterful on offence, shooting 14 of 26 from the field while converting on 8 of 9 free-throw attempts.

How Irving performs at the point of attack will determine the Nets’ offence when they’re not playing through Duran. If he can get his offence going early, the Bucks will have a hard time containing Irving and the Nets’ offence.
