After losing their first home game, the Atlanta Hawks thrashed the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 and tied the series 2-2. Atlanta dominated all four quarters without their star Trae Young, winning 110-88 and inching one step closer to the NBA Finals. The Hawks team effort on offense and defense proved to be too much for the Bucks and played an important role in the win. Lou Williams dropped 21 points and Bogdan Bogdanović added another 20; Kevin Huerter and Clint Capela together delivered 30 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.
Prior to Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Bucks were an eye-popping -1500 favorites to move on to The Finals while the Hawks were +870 underdogs. As the series heads back to Milwaukee for Game 5, the Hawks are two-point underdogs, and the over/under is set at 215.5, according to FanDuel. With the uncertainty surrounding the two superstars, Trae Young and Giannis Antetokounmpo, oddsmakers are staying away from any ridiculous series prices. Because Giannis is doubtful to play in Game 5 and his timetable to return is unknown, FanDuel sees the Hawks as slight underdogs to win the series — -102 odds. The Bucks having two of the final three games at home surely has an impact on them being favorites set at -116.
