BKN vs MIL Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks

Share

BKN vs MIL Dream11: NBA Regular Season is going to be gone soon but it will leave many memorable events behind it and as we will move towards the Playoffs, the analysis will shift towards which teams will go how much deep in the postseason. However, before we move into the Playoffs, there are a bunch of Play-in spots to solidify the rankings with a few days remaining. And with a lot to play for various teams, let us now jump into the match between the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Nets are doing much better compared to earlier months as they have picked up their game which has largely been due to the return of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving playing more often. The team is in a prime position to move into the Play-in tournament but much was expected from them around the midway part of the season.

On the other hand, the Bucks have been doing a great job at getting back to their winning ways and they know how to turn it on during the Playoffs. Giannis has been red-hot throughout the season on both ends of the floor. As the Playoffs near, the Bucks are sure to turn on the heat.

Host: Brooklyn Nets
Visitors: Milwaukee Bucks
Match Timing: 1 April, @ 05:30 AM
Venue: Barclays Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

The Nets come into this game after beating the Pistons 130:123 as Kevin Durant stacked up 41 points in another high-scoring game by the team.

The Nets are likely to finish at the eighth spot in the East, which can be scary for the other Play-in tournaments, especially a team that may end up finishing in the seventh rank. They have been doing a great job of scoring at a regular basis and this has been largely due to the presence of two high-quality shot creators in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, both of who can go off for big nights during many games. Their defense hasn’t been as top-notch as earlier but it has been decent recently.

If the team ends up playing Cleveland Cavaliers, it may be challenging especially if Jarrett Allen ends up playing. The Nets have had some issues earlier in the middle but Andre Drummond has been giving some top-notch rebounding and inside scoring. Bruce Brown has done much better compared to earlier in the season, Seth Curry has done well as an off-guard shooter and meanwhile, Goran Dragic has been doing a more than decent job off the bench.

The Bucks have been getting it done recently and away from home 118:116 win sums it up as Giannis went off for 40 points.

The Bucks are the defending champions and they have been doing a great job with Giannis at the helm, doing a great job on both ends of the floor. Antetokounmpo gives around 30 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, and multiple blocks or steals. The team has had some trouble against the elite squads, especially away from home, which would mean that during the Playoffs, this is the one aspect that will need to work on.

Khris Middleton has been a brilliant wing and we know he can pick up his game once the Playoffs begin. On the other hand, Jrue Holiday has rather increased his scoring production while also being a more than decent playmaker and rebounder. With Brook Lopez’s return, the Center position has been bolstered. Bobby Portis will be huge off the bench as a scorer and rebounder whereas Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, and Wesley Matthews will share minutes as the off-guard/wing in different situations, so they will need to hit their open shots with Holiday, Middleton, and Giannis occupying most of the defenders.
