Nets vs Bucks battle of the former MVPs

The Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks are two title contenders this 2022-23 NBA season, but it is no doubts since they have the former league MVPs. This will be an exciting match as these two squads are two of the strongest squads in the league. Bucks welcome the Nets at home for their meeting on October 27, 2022, at 7:30 AM (GMT+8). As the Nets try to bounce back from their loss, the Bucks want to earn another victory after dominating their last game.

In the history books of these two teams, it was the Bucks who are at the advantaged as they own a 106-77 record against the Nets. In fact, last season, for the three times these two squads met, Bucks took home the victory of those three matches. The Nets are coming off from a loss against Memphis on their last match with a score of 134-124. This will be an exciting match especially seeing two former MVPs competing against each other. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant are set to meet once again. These two are two of the best players in the four and five position, so it is no doubt that these two teams are title contenders.

This team is currently undefeated as they already recorded a 2-0 win-loss record across their name. They managed to go past the Rockets, giving them their second win in this contest. That win is a dominating win as they are leading almost throughout that match. This is actually a good start for the Bucks, as they eye to reclaim their title in the NBA. On their last game, this squad is scorching hot in shooting, averaging 56.5% in the field. As for the three-point range, they also did well, scoring 16 out of their 31 shots. Giannis Antetokounmpo only played 28 minutes, but in those 28 minutes, he already scored 44 points and 12 rebounds. This just proves why Giannis is considered a two-time MVP in the league.

Offensively, this squad is 27th in the league, scoring 107.5 points per game, but is the 1st defensively. They are giving away just 96.5 points per game, which is why they are number one defensively. Aside from Giannis, they also have guys like Brook Lopez, Jrue Holiday, Bobby Portis, and Grayson Allen who help the Bucks win their games.

This squad has Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Ben Simmons, three of the best players in the league. However, although this squad have those three, they still failed to exceed the expectations of them. But, that does not stop them for being title contenders, and coming into this match, this squad wants to turn the tables around. They are hoping to get back on track as they want to record more wins. On their last match, this squad failed to slow down the Gizzlies, dropping them to 1-2. On their last match, Durant and Irving stepped up big time, chipping in 37 points each.

In the offense, they are 16th in the league as they are scoring 113.7 points per game for their first three matches. On the other hand, they are currently the 28th in defense as they are giving away 123 points per game. Aside from Durant and Irving, this squad also gets help from Ben Simmons, Nic Claxton, and Patty Mills.
