While all eyes are usually on Giannis Antetokounmpo, it is All-Star Khris Middleton who needs to step up his game for the Bucks to come out victorious. Middleton must find his groove quickly after a bad shooting night.
In his last game against the Memphis Grizzlies Middleton was struggling from the floor. While he posted 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists, Middleton was just 5 of 16 from the field and 1 of 4 from three-point range. Middleton converted on 5 of his five free throw attempts.
The Sixers are among the best three-point shooting teams of the NBA. Middleton will have to vary his scoring to achieve success. Milwaukee will have a better chance of winning if he is able to succeed on the offensive side.
How can the Sixers defeat the Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks have a similar game to Philadelphia’s. The Bucks have great opportunities because they draw on the star power and experience of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Milwaukee rank 4th overall in three-point field goals made per game (14.3), and 5th overall in three-point field goal efficiency (36.8%). Playing at a fast pace, ranking 10th in break points per game, the Bucks can find great opportunities against lazy defences.
The Sixers don’t have a reputation for being able to defend in transition. They will need to use their scoring options efficiently and make more effort to get back. Philly is currently ranked last in league efficiency in fast breaks. They will have to improve their performance.
Sixers Key Player: (G) James Harden

— NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBCSPhilly) March 26, 2022
James Harden is coming off of just his 14th official NBA match as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. In his last match, he struggled to overcome a strong defense and will face the Bucks.
In his last game, a loss to the Phoenix Suns, Harden posted 14 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds in 39 minutes of play. Although the average player might be proud, Harden is a MVP-calibre player and this production is not impressive.
Shooting just 2 of 11 from the field and 2 of 5 from three, Harden needs to find his shot. Although there is a silver lining to his incredible assist numbers, it would be foolish not to point out that any aspect of Harden’s game is worth more than his scoring.
