Brooklyn vs Milwaukee: prediction for NBA preseason match
Nets recorded a victory in the first preseason match. Two days ago they demolished Lakers (123:97) on an away game. Steve Nash didn't put team's leaders in the line-up for this match, but reserve players put up a good performance. Cameron Thomas became the MVP of the match. 19-year old player tallied 21 points and four rebounds. David Duke and Day'Ron Sharpe also played well in this match.
We should note that Kyrie Irving's future in the league is uncertain now. Leader of Brooklyn is refusing to get vaccinated. That's why he can't train with the team in New York and can't play in home matches. If things will go on like that Irving can be waived from the team.
Milwaukee are yet to play a full preseason match. Only three quarters were played in the game against Memphis. At this time Bucks were losing, 77-87. Jordan Nwora was the best player for the Bucks, but other players failed to impress.
Leaders of the team, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, missed the game. We are not expecting to see them in the match against Brooklyn as well. Mike Budenholzer wants to keep his best players for the regular season.
In 5 out of 6 most recent matches Brooklyn scored at least 111 points
Nets won the first quarter in three out of five most recent matches
Brooklyn will have more chances for a victory in this game. Nets' bench players are way stronger than Bucks' ones. Moreover, Nets can put LaMarcus Aldridge and Paul Millsap into the line-up. They already played in the previous match, but were rather unsuccessful.
Steve Nash's team is a favourite of this match. We offer to place a bet on Nets to win.
Our prediction - Brooklyn to win with the handicap (-2) points
Prediction: Handicap (-2) on Brooklyn
