It is two words that we all love to hear in the world of sports: game seven.
The place where the real champions are made, and we find out who has the stones in them to come out ahead.
We got the Milwaukee Bucks on the road to take on the Brooklyn Nets to determine who will move on to the Eastern Conference Finals.
When it comes to game seven, everything is on the line. There are no more excuses and no more ways out.
Your back is against the wall, and this is what decides it all.
On one side, you have Kevin Durant, a clearly injured James Harden, and no Kyrie Irving. On the other, the Bucks have all of their starters in place and healthy.
Legacy’s are on the line as we gear up for this one, and we have all of your coverage here to break down the matchup and help you determine your best bets.
Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview: Keeping their season alive
Honestly, it was to be expected that the Bucks would come out in game six locked in and ready to go, and the combination of Giannis and Middleton managed to get going together finally.
Middleton was actually the star of the show, as he finished with 38 points and looked sensational on the offensive end of the floor.
It was a welcoming sight to see them answer the call, but now they have to do it on the road in Brooklyn, where they have found little to no success.
At this point, Coach Bud has trimmed his rotation down to about six-and-a-half players, with Pat Connaughton being the only one off the bench receiving significant minutes.
We know who they are going down with.
Brooklyn Nets Betting Preview: The legacy of Harden and Durant
Durant has already proven himself a number of times in his NBA career, but James Harden hasn’t been in too many of these moments.
It’s a shame that he is as injured as he is because he has been sensational for Brooklyn when healthy.
I do have more respect for him as a player now because there isn’t any way what he’s doing on one leg should be working, but he is the one who is making it work.
He has found a way to make an impact without dominating the ball-handling as much, and it makes a difference.
They’ll need him and everyone else they got to step up in this one.

It all comes down to this.
The Nets seem like they are truly on their last legs in these games, but they might have one more magic show left in them. I am taking them to win at home over Milwaukee and move on to the Eastern Conference Finals.
