Atlanta Hawks Preview

Nate McMillan and his Hawks team like the tag of underdogs and that will set them in good stead against the Bucks this series. We know that the Bucks have failed to reach their peak in the Giannis era and the Hawks will be well aware of that. It’s something to hold onto especially with the pressure on the Bucks in game 1. The Milwaukee crowd will be expecting. The Hawks won three of their four road games against the 76ers and will believe they can do the same again. But they’ll have to be at 100% throughout the series and specifically tomorrow night to stop Giannis.

Is it finally their time? The series win versus the Nets suggests it could well be. The Bucks have promised to deliver for a few seasons now and with star man Giannis continuing to dominate, they’re the team to beat. In fact, the sportsbook make them +110 favorites to win the NBA Championship. To do so they’ll have to get past a very plucky Atlanta team. If they perform to their best they will, but we know that pressure can get to the very best teams in the playoffs. Expect the series to be closer than you might expect, but the Bucks to get there in the end.  It’s time.
