NBA Playoffs Preview: Magic Vs. Bucks Game 5

Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks look to close out the Orlando Magic in Game 5 live at 21:00 GMT.

The Milwaukee Bucks are poised to close out the Orlando Magic tonight in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series and move on to the next round. The Bucks are the No. 1 ranked team in the Eastern Conference and are favorites to make it to the NBA Finals, but, they have a long way to go with teams like the Miami Heat, or the defending champion Toronto Raptors or the Boston Celtics before getting there. 

To overcome 3-1 is going to be quite a challenge, especially against Giannis and the Bucks. They have won three straight since losing Game 1, and Giannis has been getting better and better. 

The Magic head coach Steve Clifford, commented, “What we have to concentrate on is what we did today (at practice). Clarify what (Game 4) was all about – what was good, what was bad – we made a couple of adjustments in our pick-and-roll coverage that will hopefully help us tomorrow, and then we went through two or three things offensively that we think can help also.”

“I think we’ve done a lot of good things in this series against a terrific team and what we have to do tomorrow is try to put forty-eight minutes together,” Clifford continued.

Without a doubt, the Magic will be playing with everything they have tonight, but, so will the Bucks. Milwaukee wants to get this over with and move onto the Heat.
