Bucks to Win on Moneyline
The first game in the series didn’t go that well for the Bucks, even though the Nets had to play without James Harden for the entire game after he went down with an injury in the first minute. The Nets will be without Harden in Game 2 as well and we think that the Bucks can take advantage of it this time. Of course, the Nets still have Durant and Irving, plus other useful players like Joe Harris and Blake Griffin, but the Bucks can still win this game if all of their main players play well, which didn’t happen in Game 1. So, our first Nets vs Bucks prediction is for the Bucks to win on moneyline.
Khris Middleton Over 21.5 Total Points
One of the main reasons why the Bucks have lost the first game in the series was a poor shooting performance by Khris Middleton. The second-best scorer of the Bucks went 6-23 from the field to end the game with just 13 points. Even with that game, Middleton averages 19.8 points per game in the playoffs, so we expect him to bounce back in Game 2. With that in mind, our next Nets vs Bucks prediction is for Middleton to score more than 21 points.
Kevin Durant Over 32.5 Total Points
We are all aware of the scoring prowess that Kevin Durant possesses, so our final Nets vs Bucks prediction is for Durant to score at least 33 points in Game 2. Although Durant failed to go over that line in Game 1 since he scored 29 points in that game, he is averaging exactly 32 points per game in these playoffs. And with James Harden out, Durant and Irving will have to take on even more responsibility in the offense to give the Nets a chance of going up 2-0 in the series.
Nets vs Bucks preview – Can the Nets get another win without Harden?
The first game of the Eastern Conference semi-finals in the Nets vs Bucks series was a bit disappointing due to Harden’s injury and the game not being as close as we expected. But let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of Game 2:
The thing that the Nets fans feared most happened in the first game of the Nets vs Bucks series – one of their Big 3 went down with an injury. It’s still unclear how long will James Harden be out after aggravating a hamstring injury, but he is definitely out for Game 2. In addition to Harden, the Nets will be without Jeff Green too, as well as Spencer Dinwiddie who is out for the season.
The Bucks have been enjoying a great playoff run so far, but the Nets proved to be a tough nut to crack in Game 1, even though they were forced to play the game without James Harden. In any case, the Bucks will be gunning for a win in Game 2 and they will do so with an almost clean bill of health. The only player who will miss the game, and the rest of the season unfortunately, is Donte DiVincenzo.
