Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets Odds For Game 2
Game 1 went about as well as possible for the Nets, in terms of what happened on the court. But, an injury left them with a massive question mark. The Nets won and got a massive game from Blake Griffin, which they’ll need if they’re going to win a title. But, in the process James Harden went down with a hamstring injury. The nets are calling it “hamstring tightness” and have already said he’ll miss Game 2. So, can the Bucks rebound and get a win in Brooklyn? Here are some Bucks vs. Nets predictions for Game 2.

Milwaukee Bucks Preview
The Milwaukee Bucks have looked like one of the strongest teams in the playoffs to this point. They dominated a Heat team that supposedly matched up well against them and Giannis Antetokounmpo is back to playing MVP-caliber basketball.
Unfortunately, they ran into a buzz saw in Game 1, but I wouldn’t let that discourage them. This is still anyone’s series. Especially with Harden looking like he’s going to miss some significant time. If it wasn’t for a third quarter that saw them come out of the half flat, Milwaukee would have won Game 1.
The key is going to be getting a good performance from Khris Middleton. Middleton, who is one of the most underrated players in the NBA, was ice cold in Game 1 and went 6-23 from the floor and scored 13 points. If he plays up to par in Game 2, I think they come out of Brooklyn with the series tied.
Brooklyn Nets Preview
Brooklyn is just about the only team in the NBA that can afford to lose a player of James Harden’s level. Sure, not having Harden in Game 2 will hurt. But they still have the best scorer in the world in Kevin Durant, an elite point guard in Kyrie Irving and a player in Blake Griffin that has become severely underrated.
The defensive effort they put forth in Game 1 is what won them the game. The Bucks shot 20% from 3-point range, but is that sustainable? Chances are they shoot the ball much better this time around, which means Kevin Durant is going to have to go off in order to match Giannis point for point.
