Milwaukee Bucks added another victory to their win column against the New York Knicks Sunday to reach the No.2 seed in the Eastern Conference.
After a relatively slow start, the Bucks amped up their performances and showed why they have to be considered among the top teams in the East, after winning the NBA title last season.
Former Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings has expressed his belief that the Milwaukee Bucks will finish as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, and added that Giannis Antetokounmpo is “just different”.
Giannis made another incredible performance against the Knicks as he finished with 20 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in Milwaukee’s 112-97 win over Knicks.
The Eastern Conference is very competitive this year, and there are certainly some teams that could put up a good fight against the reigning champions.
The Brooklyn Nets are currently the no.1 seed in the East, even without Kyrie Irving. The Chicago Bulls are the 3rd seed, and while they have a lot of players currently sidelined under health and safety protocols, they are a great team, when healthy.
