It’s a dunk off in Milwaukee. The marquee NBA matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets started off with some posters, with Giannis Antetokounmpo dunking over Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan returning the favor when he slammed one hard on Giannis.

Prior to Sunday’s showdown, the Bucks own the third seed in the Eastern Conference with a 39-24 record. Meanwhile, Brooklyn was in first with a 43-21 win-loss tally. Both teams look ready for the NBA playoffs, and their matchup was certainly a good test for the Nets and Bucks.

While the Nets are still without James Harden due to his hamstring injury, they are still a formidable team to play against. Durant and Irving have found great chemistry since KD came back, and they will look to build upon it heading into the playoffs.

The Bucks, on the other hand, are building chemistry between Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton and Antetokounmpo. Holiday has seemed to figure out his role within the team, and he will have a big impact on their playoff success. The criticism of the back-to-back MVP of Giannis has been that he can’t get to the NBA Finals. He has made the Eastern Conference Finals once in his career back in the 2018-19 season when he lost in six games to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors.

For the sake of the fans, you should hope to see this matchup in the playoffs. The NBA stars colliding would make for a series for the ages.
