MIL Vs ORL Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Milwaukee set to seal their passage into the semi-finals today
Long gone is the Milwaukee Bucks which was plummeting in form. 3-5 in the seeding round and a defeat in game 1 of the playoffs saw alarm bells go off in Milwaukee Bucks’ ranks with the side for once this season no longer looking a side capable of marauding its way towards the prestigious title.
As the naysayers rose to point out flaws in Milwaukee’s gameplan, the side was quick to quash them. The team returned with aplomb in the series against Orlando Magic with the 121-106 win the last time around seeing the side’s third win in a row to place the side on the cusp of making it into the semi-finals.
And with Giannis having been declared the Defensive Player of the Year yesterday, Milwaukee Bucks will be looking to herald in unbridled celebrations come today. A win would be the most befitting way to rejoice in their mainstay being accorded with a title he’s ardently fought for, a set of events bound to buoy the side towards a comprehensive win on the day.
Defence has been a massive predicament for Orlando in the series. While their attack has shone and emerged as a sparkling diamond, their inability to protect the rim and placate attempted triples will result in yet another defeat for the team.

MIL Vs ORL Dream11 Picks
George Hill from Milwaukee Bucks will become the first name to be instilled in our Dream 11 side for the forthcoming encounter. With 9 points and 6 assists the last time around, he not only managed to come up with triples from the corners but pulled off dimes for the side as well.
Far from his best still but Wesley Matthews is slowly rediscovering his touch. With 12 points in the bygone encounter, he came up with his spin and slams and reverse scoops to make him a must have pick for us at just 6.5 credits.
Wesley’s rekindled form has resulted in Pat Connaughton getting reduced minutes. However, that doesn’t deter us from opting for his services with his four points and five rebounds in the bygone skirmish alluding towards his well rounded skill set.
In exhilarating touch since the onset of the playoffs, Terrence Ross was at his imperious best the last time around as well. Alleyoops, backsteps and handles saw him drop 19 points while his tenacity saw him earn the 9 rebounds as well.
Partnering up with him on the day will be the calibre of Gary Clark. His ability to pull off points in the paint saw him accrue 12 points in game 4, numbers which ensured Orlando magic were not completely wiped out of the affair.
This season’s DPOTY, Giannis Antetokounmpo is not striving for the title of MVP as well. And he’s leaving no stone unturned to win the double with him registering a behemoth 31 points, 8 assists and 15 rebounds he stepped out to the middle.
He might not have been at his best when converting the field points but Brook Lopez’s steals, blocks, rebounds and deflections saw him deliver a pivotal performance for the club to see him wrap up our set of picks for the impending encounter.
Orlando will see their talisman make for a must have pick for the upcoming scrimmage. Nikola Vucevic has assiduously tried to uplift a regressing side, a player who has unabatedly marauded his way into both of the side’s ambits to pull of a 31-11 double-double the last time around.
The manner in which he’s rifled his way through double-doubles see us opt for Giannis as the star player while Nikola is the pro player.
