The Post’s experts predict the Nets-Bucks second-round Eastern Conference playoff series which begins Saturday:
The Nets’ Big 3 hardly were threatened against undermanned Boston, but Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks appear to be on a mission after last year’s early exit. Jrue Holiday was a difference-maker in the sweep of Miami. Bucks in 7.
The battle-hardened Bucks will provide a far tougher test than the injury-riddled Celtics did. With both Big 3s going at it, this could be the most entertaining series either conference has to offer. Nets in 7.
I see this series as a classic, and would be stunned if it doesn’t go at least six games. Antetokounmpo will be the best player on the floor, but two of the Nets’ Big 3 — Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving — have won championship rings, giving them a little muscle-memory edge. Nets in 7.
Both teams are good enough to win one on each other’s floor. And if that holds, the last game will be on the Nets’ floor. Can’t see the Big 3 allowing that one to end poorly. Nets in 7.
