The Hawks lead the season series against the Bucks 2-1, but none of the games were blow outs. All the games came down to the fourth quarter, and they were about who was going to step up in the clutch. One of the biggest things will be the Bucks bench going against a very good Hawks bench. Also Joe Johnson seems to bring his "A" game when he plays the Bucks, so lets hope he forgets that at home. Ridnour, Stackhouse, and Ilyasova played very well Wednesday night against the Celtics. These guys will be needed to play a role in for the Bucks to get past the Hawks.
The playoffs schedule has been released, and we'll have an update on that later. Times and dates not withstanding, game one will be played in Atlanta, as will game two. Milwaukee will host the third and fourth games at the Bradley Center. If needed game five will be in Atlanta, and if game six is needed Milwaukee will host that one. Game seven if needed will be played in Atlanta. Not sure how many games this series will go, but I'm really excited to get things started.
Other match up for the Eastern Playoffs will be the following:
1. Cleveland Cavilers vs. 8. Chicago Bulls
2. Orlando Magic vs. 7. Charlotte Bobcats
4. Boston Celtics vs. 5. Miami Heat
