Brooklyn is dealing with a couple of injury situations. First, it appears PG Kyrie Irving will miss this Game 7 with that bad ankle. During the regular season, the Nets played 36-18 SU, 28-26 ATS with Irving, 12-6 SU, 10-8 without him. And F James Harden is playing with a sore hamstring which has limited his abilities over the last couple of games.
Brooklyn, with home-court advantage, opened this series chalked at -190 to win it, with Milwaukee getting +160 as the dog.
The Nets played two games better than the Bucks in the regular-season standings, 48-24 to 46-26, but Milwaukee took the season series from Brooklyn two games to one. So the Bucks are 5-4 SU, 4-5 ATS against the Nets this season.

We liked Milwaukee to take this series before it began, and we’re sticking with that thought for this Game 7. The Bucks lost the first two games but won three of the next four and held leads of 21, 19, 17, and 21 points in those four games. They just let one of those slip away. Yes, Durant is awesome, but Brooklyn’s missing Irving, and Harden isn’t playing at full speed. And we think Milwaukee’s the better defensive team.
