NBA Playoff Betting July 2 – Milwaukee Bucks at Atlanta Hawks Game 6

Who would’ve thought that with the leading scorer from each team sidelined with an injury the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks would score the most points in any game of their Eastern Conference final. Well, that’s what happened on Wednesday with Bucks emerging with a 123-112 victory that pushed them one win closer to claiming the conference title and a date with the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals. The Bucks can clinch the series with a win on Saturday in Game 6, but they will probably be without Giannis Antetokounmpo once again.
