The Atlanta Hawks are riding a three-game winning streak and, after a bit of a downturn, the team is back above the .500 mark with an 8-7 mark this season. However, the team’s schedule becomes (much) more difficult in the near future, beginning with a challenging road game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday evening.
Though the Bucks have lost two games in a row, Milwaukee enters this contest with the No. 2 offensive rating (117.0) and No. 2 net rating (+8.6) in the NBA. From there, the Bucks have a spotless injury report, and the team’s roster is keyed by star power with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday.
