Milwaukee Bucks Betting
Just like in the first round, the Milwaukee Bucks lost the first game of the series. They are expecting more from Giannis Antetokounmpo to perform better in Game 2 as he only did a subpar 18 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. It was Khris Middleton that led the team in scoring with 28 points along with six rebounds, five assists, four three-pointers and two steals before fouling out of the game. Brook Lopez came up with a good scoring performance with 24 points and dropped four triples. Kyle Korver was the highest pointer from the bench with 11 points but if the Bucks need more production, it should come from George Hill and Wesley Matthews.
