Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks
Harden gave another -out of this world- performance yesterday with another 40+ points triple-double game while he managed to score an unbelievable buzzer beater game-winner in one of the most unique 'justice moments' in the NBA, right after that never seen before, criminal no-call by the refs which gave the lead to the Warriors 20'' before the end of the game. Harden is back and he is not only making his MVP case but he is a strong candidate!
Antetokumpo is not the undisputed favorite for the MVP award anymore, he knows it and he can feel the heat. The Hawks have improved their defense a lot and they are doing a good job defending Yiannis' position, which is a bit concerning for this game, but Anteto is like no other player in the league and there is not a single one defense in the league able to slow him down when he does his thing. He comes from another game with limited laying time because of foul trouble and his offensive fouls (charges) has been quite an issue for him this season as it seems he is the only one capable of stopping himself so far.
Personally, I think that he will be extra motivated after Harden's performance yesterday and the fact that he wasn't able to stay in the court longer in his last game. I can see him being on a mission and the Hawks are going to have a lot of trouble.
