Bucks vs Nets Prediction and NBA Odds
The Milwaukee Bucks will aim for the top spot in the Eastern Conference when they lock horns with the Brooklyn Nets in their next road fixture tonight. The Bucks looked slightly out of touch in some of the recent games.
However, the last close win against the 76ers must have given the defending champions a lot of confidence. Antetokounmpo once again dominated the opponent side single-handedly as he added as many as 40 points to his name. He reflected on his performance in the post-match conference:
“Just let my instincts play, I just tried to jump as high as I can and make a play.”
The Brooklyn Nets need to be at their best to secure a home win when they host the mighty Bucks at the Barclays Center Arena. With only 6 regular-season games remaining, the Nets would want to strengthen their position in the top 8 of their conference as they have a small lead over the teams below. A lot of expectations rely on Kevin Durant who looked in great form in the last game, scoring 41 points.
Both sides are not having any major injury concerns before this matchup.
