  • Milwaukee Bucks won 117-104 when the two teams last met on April 2

Philadelphia 76ers Form

Philadelphia enter the new season with their sights set on a run to the NBA Finals after coming up short last time around.

The 76ers went 54-28 during the 2022/23 regular season to cruise into the postseason once again.

They made straightforward work of Brooklyn in the first round, sweeping them in four games with some comfortable wins.

Philadelphia then drew first blood in the Eastern Conference semi-final with Boston, winning 119-115 on the road.

The 76ers then fought back from 2-1 down to take a 3-2 series lead, only to lose the final two games of the series to crash out of the playoffs.

Milwaukee Bucks Form

Milwaukee are looking to put last season’s disappointment behind them and challenge for the NBA crown.

The Bucks went 58-24 during the regular season to enjoy smooth passage to the postseason, but their stay was short-lived.

They faced Miami in the first round and immediately fell behind in the series, suffering a surprise 130-117 defeat at home.

Milwaukee rebounded to take the second meeting 138-122, but it was all downhill from there as they lost their next three games to fall at the first hurdle.

The Bucks issued a strong response to that loss in the offseason, firing head coach Mike Budenholzer before acquiring Damian Lillard in a blockbuster trade.

Verdict

The arrival of Damian Lillard makes Milwaukee more dangerous than ever.

The Bucks have an excellent recent record against Philadelphia and are backed to send an early message with a win and cover.
