The Brooklyn Nets host the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of what was expected to be a closely contested series. The home team has won each contest, giving Nets fans and bettors more confidence going into the contest. Kevin Durant and James Harden will need to show up for Brooklyn to win. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton are on fire for the Bucks and can take a massive step towards the Finals with this game.

Bucks vs. Nets, 8:30 p.m. ET, TNT

Pick ATS: Nets +0.5

This is essentially a pick ‘em game and the Nets are the home team, making them the better bet. Durant has been stellar and Harden should continue to improve as his hamstring progresses towards 100 percent. Brooklyn is without Kyrie Irving, but Durant and Harden are more than capable of carrying the team past the Bucks.

Player Prop: Joe Harris over 13.5 points (-105)

Harris is averaging just 9.5 points per game in the series, but will need to be a consistent third option for the Nets in Game 7. He’s taking 10.3 shots per game with a large portion of them coming from behind the arc. His percentages should normalize to previous levels eventually and Game 7 is the perfect storm for Harris to break out.
