Preview of the Atlanta Hawks
In fact, no one thought the Atlanta Hawks could put the mighty Philadelphia 76ers in the semifinals, the No. 1 spot in the East this season. But the crunchy Hawks found a way to beat the Sixers in seven games, winning four of the three ways.
The Milwaukee Bucks won the season series against the Atlanta Hawks in the 2021 NBA regular season, but the latter won its last game on April 25, 111-104. Three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner Lou Williams had 15 points, all in the fourth quarter, while Kevin Huerter had 20 points for Atlanta, who played uninjured Trey Young (left ankle).
This Atlanta Hawks team continues to be in a poor position in this series, as in the previous two. But they have a good mix of youngsters, including Col on Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovich (besides Young և Huerter), cunning veterans like Williams, Danilo Galinar, Clint Capella.
Main player – Trae Young
It will be interesting to see how Trey Young’s injured right shoulder responds to treatment առաջ before resting before the first game against the Milwaukee Bucks. His shoulder bothered him throughout the Sixers series, where he hit less than 40 percent, but at the same time scored 29.0 points և 10.9 assists.
Young dictates the flow of crime to the Atlanta Hawks. Even as he struggles with his shot, the 22-year-old has a huge impact through his playmaker, allowing for fouls. If the Hawks hope to win Game 1, Young will have to dominate the Milwaukee Bucks defense against Jrue Holiday.

Preview of Milwaukee Bucks
After the shocking series against Brooklyn Nets, the Milwaukee Bucks rested for a few days before the first game of the conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks. The 7th victory in Saturday’s 115-111 game should have faked this team into a more formidable combat unit, especially since it faced a team that overcame difficulties to get here.
Twice MVP ian Anis Antetokunpon և Twice all-star Chris Middleton will try to finish what he started two years ago, trying to get this team to the final.
The Milwaukee Bucks averaged just 101.9 points per game against the Nets with 44.1% shooting, and they will have to increase those numbers if they are to emerge victorious.
Main player – Chris Middleton
Chris Middleton made the Rollercoaster semi-final against the Nets with just 40.8% of his shots from the field. He had 13 և 17 points in 1 և 2 games, respectively, but the Milwaukee Bucks could not afford such a slow start from Middleton.
He completed it in the last five games of the series, averaging 28.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.6 steals and three to 41.0 percent of shots. Middleton’s production is absolutely essential for the success of this team, as it poses a reliable perimeter threat to the team.
In order for the Milwaukee Bucks to avoid such a shock from the Sixers’ overwhelming efforts against the Atlanta Hawks, Middleton will have to be more consistent.

Hawks vs Bucks game prediction
No one could have predicted that the Atlanta Hawks would run away in the second round after Philly, but Trey Young և’s company has shown that their collective age of 25.6, which is the 11th youngest in the NBA, is resilient.
Expect the Atlanta Hawks to take advantage of their deep-seated long-range shooter threat as the Milwaukee Bucks try to pressure them to their size.
The first games are usually sensitive games, so expect both teams to make a lot of mistakes and misses at the start before they can find out in the second half. The game should be narrow, but it would not be surprising if the Atlanta Hawks shook the basketball world again by winning the game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
