Saturday’s winner-take-all Game 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn will be a major notch in the belt for the legacy of Giannis Antetokounmpo or Kevin Durant.
While it may sound like hyperbole, the Bucks and Nets have gone back and forth in a hard-fought series that has contained some of the best individual performances we have seen in quite some time.
Whoever comes out on top in Game 7 will no doubt be placed in numerous “Best Player in the World” conversations, moving forward.
In Game 6, Milwaukee got the best version of Giannis.
He didn’t hoist up a single 3-point attempt, and he shot an “impressive-for-Giannis” 6-10 from the free-throw line.
Antetokounmpo has been dominant in the paint all series long, and Milwaukee’s success has literally hinged on whether or not he chooses to stay there.
Despite both of these teams possessing top-five offenses in the regular season, the combination of familiarity with each other’s playbook and injuries to key personnel has resulted in this series hitting the under in five of the six games played heading into Saturday night.
