Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets acquired James Harden in a trade and now they have officially anointed the Nets as the team to beat. According to the basketball betting odds, they are the favorites to win the Eastern Conference and only behind LeBron and the Lakers in the odds to win the NBA Championship. Did everyone forget about the Bucks?

Still the MVP

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the reigning MVP and this is a well-rested team. The Bucks beat the Mavericks on the 15th and will have two days off before this game. The Bucks have played just two games in the last six nights. That is good news for players who are recovering from an injury like reserve forward Torrey Craig.

Still Adjusting

Harden looked incredible in his debut for the Nets as he put up a triple-double and had a record-setting night. But don’t confuse that performance with team chemistry.  Kevin Durant admitted that the team was forcing passes early in the game.  Coach Steve Nash said ”I think it’s going to be an adjustment for everyone.” This is going to take time and the struggles to gel will be obvious against a better opponent in Milwaukee.

2021 MLK Day NBA Picks

This is the biggest game of the day and the play is the Milwaukee Bucks.  They have a chip on their shoulder. They have been dismissed as the conference favorite and they have the best basketball player on the court. To get a team of this caliber against a team that is adjusting to a new key player is too good to pass up. The fact that the Bucks are favorites, should tell you everything that you need to know.
