Atlanta Hawks Vs Milwaukee Bucks Game 3 Prediction

NBA Matchup: Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks

Date: 27th June 2021

Time: 8:30 PM ET

The Milwaukee Bucks are back to being the favorites after they absolutely demolished the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2. The Hawks started off the Eastern Conference Finals hot and stole a win but in Game 2 they were humbled. Even though everyone thought Milwaukee would fumble the game they lead the Game by  41 points.

The Series is now tied 1-1 going into Atlanta for Game 3.

The Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Game 3 Prediction

Trae Young vs the Milwaukee Bucks

No one knows how the Atlanta Hawks won Game 1. They caught the Milwaukee Bucks sleeping and at least grabbed one game. Trae Young was the highest scorer for the Hawks unsurprisingly. However, he scored just 15 points on awful efficiency with 9 turnovers. There was so much garbage time that everyone on the roster got minutes. They could not guard the paint and were outscored by 32 points in there. The Hawks also had fewer rebounds and assists. In a nutshell, they just got massively outplayed. This what was expected from the Hawks and it looks like the Bucks will continue dominating.

The Milwaukee Bucks showcased their true defensive prowess against the Hawks. In that 2nd quarter, Milwaukee scored 43 points to Atlanta’s 17. Once they got the lead, they went for the kill and did not give the Hawks any chance. Brook Lopez was really effective regardless of everyone saying he should be benched the whole series. Pat Connaughton made important 3’s and Khris contributed in the other things. Giannis and Jrue dominated as they were expected to. Trae can’t guard Jrue and Giannis is unguardable in general. That’s why I don’t see them dropping another game.

I predict Milwaukee to continue dominating and win Game 3 convincingly even though the game will be in Atlanta.  They will make everyone forget the memory of that Game 1 loss.
