Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks Date and Time: Wednesday, June 30,2021 6:00 AM IST Venue: State Farm Arena, Atlanta, GA. Prediction: Atlanta Hawks Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Milwaukee Bucks face the Atlanta Hawks in Game 4 of the 2021 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at the State Farm Arena in their match.
The Hawks failed to capitalise on their home-court advantage against the Bucks in Game 3, losing 102-113 at the State Farm Arena to concede a 2-1 lead in the series.
The Milwaukee Bucks did a decent job in maintaining their composure in Game 3, despite the Atlanta Hawks stretching away with leads on multiple occasions during the match,
The Bucks did not lead the game until the third quarter of the match when they gained a two-point advantage over their opponents. They continued to attack the paint, outscoring the Hawks 56-34 in that area. Meanwhile, their three-point shooting wasn’t up to the mark for most of the match until Khris Middleton hit four of their 11 threes on the night in the last quarter.
The Atlanta Hawks were very close to winning their last match and should be proud of the way they bounced back from their 34-point loss in Game 2.
They will hope that Trae Young’s ankle injury doesn’t hinder him in their next match, and he is fit enough to help them level the series before they head back to Wisconsin for Game 5. He sprained and tweaked his ankle after stepping on the referee’s foot late in the third quarter.
That affected his performance down the stretch, which played a key role in depriving the Atlanta Hawks of a well-deserved win.
Trae Young said after Game 3 that he was in pain because of the ankle injury he sustained during the match. Nevertheless, his absence gives the Milwaukee Bucks a much better chance of winning the game on Tuesday, as Young has been the focal point of the Hawks’ offense throughout the season.
With Young not at 100%, the Hawks could find it difficult to compete, making the Bucks the overwhelming favorites for this game.
