The Nets are obviously one among the foremost difficult teams within the league to forecast. they need one among the three best players within the league, an offensive force that no defender can match up with. But it’s been 18 months since he last played, and he’s returning from one among the foremost devastating injuries in sports. If Durant is 90% of his old self, the ceiling is extremely high and therefore the Nets’ ability to contend for a championship will come right down to chemistry and defense. We’ll be ready to measure the defensive disposition early, but it’s going to take a while for this team to actually hit its stride.
Nothing the Bucks got to fix will get fully tested within the regular season. Consider it a very long runway to ascertain how well they fly within the playoffs. And by fly, anything in need of a Finals destination won’t satisfy. Milwaukee knows Antetokounmpo will face defensive walls in every best-of-7 series, and can’t have its 3-point shooters or Giannis’ foul shot proficiency abandon them. This team’s time is now.
Brooklyn Nets: W – 3, L – 2
Milwaukee Bucks: W – 4, L – 1
