Milwaukee beat the Hawks 113-102 courtesy of Khris Middleton’s heroic efforts. Hawks star, ‘Ice Trae’ went down in the third quarter of the game, and his absence hurt the Hawks. Even though Giannis added 33 points and 11 rebounds, it was Khris Middleton playoff career high 38 points performance that guided Milwaukee to victory.

Milwaukee will look to get one step closer to the final by winning game 4.

Atlanta played very good basketball for most of the game, but with Trae going down, they couldn’t hold it together in the fourth. Milwaukee outscored the Hawks 30-17 to clinch the win. Khris Middleton scored of the 30 Milwaukee points in the fourth quarter.

Atlanta are yet to have any answer for the explosiveness of Giannis Antetokounmpo, and if Middleton continues his form, Bucks will cruise to victory. Atlanta will have to play their best basketball for the whole game. With home support their way, Hawks could pull off a miracle win in Game 4.


The Bucks have played clinical basketball in the last two games. Giannis and Middleton have been going off. In addition, Jrue Holiday looks to have picked back up after a rather upsetting series against Brooklyn.

But, if the superstars do not perform, the Hawks could steal this game and level the series. However, at the moment it seems like Milwaukee has the edge over Atlanta.

Prediction- Milwaukee will win Game 4 against Atlanta Hawks and lead the series 3-1
