In an unexpected turn of events, we saw two different teams who made it to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks’ young squad.

They both came from a grueling seven-game series in which they eliminated the no. 2 seed Brooklyn Nets and top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers, respectively.

Now that they are one step away from the NBA Finals let’s take a look at how their series will progress.

The bucks have the advantage over the Hawks.

Although the Hawks are continuously defying odds in this season’s playoff, the Bucks have greater tools compared to the young team.

The Bucks can’t also be compared to the 76ers, who choked their way out of the season. Giannis Antetokounmpo, despite shooting miserably from the charity stripes, is playing magnificently as well as his co-stars Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday.

A holiday can lock down the newest villain in the league, Trae Young. By shutting down Young, the Bucks can easily have their way towards the Finals.

However, Milwaukee must also prevent Young from making plays for his teammates, just like what we saw in their game seven against Philly.

Throwing defense on Young should be focused not only on stopping him from scoring but also freezing him from doing other stuff.

On the other hand, the Hawks have a chance and confidence after making it this far.

No one expected them to reach the East Finals; it’s only their second appearance in 50 years! So their confidence is on another level which could also elevate their game in the series.
