2021 Eastern Conference Finals: (3)Milwaukee Bucks vs (5)Atlanta Hawks

A matchup that nobody saw coming at all. But y’all will still watch and enjoy no matter who’s playing.

Bucks in 5. Jrue slows down Trae and Giannis unleashes complete takeover mode. They meet Phoenix in a thrilling NBA Finals matchup nobody expected but everyone enjoys.

I like Bucks in 5. They have multiple bodies they can throw on Trae. Who is going to guard Giannis. It's not going to be a situation like in Philly, where Atlanta only has to guard 3-4 players on defense at times. If Middleton can be consistent and they get something from Jrue, they should be able to take care of business.

Also the health of Bodgan will play a factor. Bucks don't have someone on the starting lineup that ATL can take advantage of on defense

Re: 2021 Eastern Conference Finals: (3)Milwaukee Bucks vs (5)Atlanta Hawks

Theoretically this should be a good matchup for Milwaukee to work out their shooting demons. Trae and those shooters make me nervous on the defensive end though. Trae's in between game and passing abilities could destroy our drop defense. We'll see. Hard to imagine we'll ever have a better chance at reaching the Finals than this but this team doesn't instill the most confidence lol.

Edit: The other thing that makes me nervous is that if we continue starting Tucker, Trae is going to be able to just chill in the corner with him on the defensive end and then roast Brook on the offensive end unless his floaters stop dropping.

Also, Jrue is really the only guy that seemingly has any chance of defending Trae. I'm not even sure what we can do once Jrue is in foul trouble, which he'll almost certainly be at some points in this series. I kinda wonder if the next best option is putting Giannis on Trae and have him go under screens and just hope Trae can't hit 3's over Giannis' length.

I have trouble trusting the Bucks in any playoff series and I don't think ATL has played particularly great in either of their series so far. I'm going to go with the team with better shooting and the better playmaker. Hawks in 7.
