But the Milwaukee Bucks came roaring back against the Hawks in game 2 and game 3. With a fully fit roster and superstars Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton firing on all cylinders, the Bucks looked set to take control of the series.

Game 4 set wrapped even before it began. With an injury to Trae Young, the Hawks looked in massive trouble. But players like Lou Williams and Bogdan Bogdanovic stepped up adding 41 points. Even Cam Reddish who had missed significant time because of an injury, chipped in with 12 points in just 23 minutes.

The Bucks meanwhile had pretty bad news as the talismanic forward Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered from a terrible knee injury. Going up for a rebound, Antetokounmpo landed awkwardly on his left leg.

With all the pressure on his left knee, the injury seemed pretty bad. The Bucks certainly will hope that Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday step up for the upcoming game and take a pivotal lead in the series.
