Their Big 3 vs. our Big 3

May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'PLAYOFFS EASTERN CONFERENCE SEMIFINALS K BUCKS S. VS NETS CERERN BUCKS Bmo'

The Milwaukee Bucks begin their next playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets on the road this Saturday night. This will be a dandy. Each team has a dominant Big 3.

For Milwaukee that’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday.

For Brooklyn that’s Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden.

Both trios are damn near impossible to control.

Over the next few days the sports world will be over-analyzing one team’s chances against the other.

My simple review? Let’s look at scoring.

During the regular season the Milwaukee Big 3 collectively averaged 60.3 points per game.

During the regular season the Brooklyn Big 3 collectively averaged 85.9 points per game.

Quite a difference.

Now let’s look at rebounds. During the regular season the Milwaukee Big 3 collectively averaged 28.6 rebounds per game.

During the regular season the Brooklyn Big 3 collectively averaged 22.1 rebounds per game.

Defense wins championships, right?

But to rebound you have to stop you opponent from scoring. can the Bucks do it against the Nets powerful Big 3? The nervous Nellie in me thinks not.

Wish we had the home court advantage.
