Bucks a nightmare matchup for Hawks


When Milwaukee and Atlanta met in the regular season, few, if any, observers believed it to be a preview of the Eastern Conference finals, but here we are. After a grueling seven-game series with the Brooklyn Nets, Giannis Antetokounmpo finds himself four wins away from the NBA Finals for the second time in his career. Trae Young and the Hawks have crashed the party after upsetting the top seeded Philadelphia 76ers, and they find themselves in the role of David yet again.


The betting market has pushed this series price to Milwaukee -480, which carries an implied probability of 82.8% that the Bucks win the series. Atlanta deserves all the credit in the world for being here, but a -3.4 net rating in a best-of-seven series that it won tells us what we need to know about what transpired against the 76ers. Now they get a much better opponent with the ability to exploit many of their weaknesses.
