The 2021 NBA playoffs continue with the Western and Eastern Conference finals. There are officially four teams left in contention to take it all in the NBA finals, with Milwaukee Bucks favored on DraftKings Sportsbook to win it all as the second-round wraps up. Here we’ll be going over the schedule for the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks.
The Bucks shook off a few demons to advance to the ECF for the second time in the past four seasons. Milwaukee had to take down the Miami Heat, the defending Eastern Conference Champs, after losing in five games to them in 2020. After that, it was the heavily favored Brooklyn Nets in seven games, including an OT thriller in Game 7 on Saturday. The Bucks entered the 2020-21 season as one of the favorites to win the East and advance to the Finals and now find themselves as the odds-on favorite. Giannis Antetokounmpo will have a chance at his first NBA Finals appearance.
