The Milwaukee Bucks took care of business Thursday night at home, taking advantage of a one-dimensional, Nets squad led by Kevin Durant. Taking advantage with Kyrie Irving’s absence, and a hobbled James Harden, the Bucks dominated Game 6.

The Three-Headed Monster, that is the Brooklyn Nets, has been decimated with injuries and is in peril of surviving next round. Without the super team In their way, the pathway is wide open for the Bucks from here on out.

Yes, the Bucks still have to win Game 7 in Brooklyn, and if they do, who is going to stop them?

The Nets are easily the Bucks biggest threat in the east, and my perspective are better than any other team left standing in the west (at least when they are healthy). Especially if the Phoenix Suns fold in the Western Conference Finals without Chris Paul, the NBA Finals would definitely be in the Milwaukee’s favor.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, 2-time Most Valuable Player Award winner, is on a mission to win his first title. Without Irving, and Harden a mere shell of himself, Giannis can smell blood in the water.

The reigning MVP is going to take over Game 7 in the Nets-Bucks series, and the end result might not even be close.

I originally picked Brooklyn to win it all, until I saw Irving go down in Game 5. Like the Nets, the NBA this season has been riddled with injuries, which of course is unfortunate to see.

I’m a Miami Heat fan, so the last thing I want is for the Milwaukee Bucks to win the championship, but sometimes you just call it how you see it.

The Bucks are a very well-rounded team; especially with star Khris Middleton (who still haunts me with his game winner over Miami in Game 1 of that series), and their latest star addition, Jrue Holiday. You could argue that Milwaukee has a ‘Big 3’ themselves, and they all really have complimented each other this season.

Barclays Center in Brooklyn is gonna be rockin’ Saturday night, so it will be interesting to see how the Bucks will match the energy from the Nets’ home crowd because they will need every single piece of it.
