The Milwaukee Bucks are heating up when it matters the most.
This fact shouldn’t surprise anyone considering the team won the NBA Finals last year and are still a very impressive, powerful, incredible basketball team.
Other squads in the league should be very afraid of Milwaukee.
As the saying goes, others really should “fear the deer”, especially when its three biggest stars are together.

In their last game, Antetokounmpo put up 26 points and 10 rebounds while Middleton produced 32 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists and Holiday made 21 points and 4 steals.
How can anyone compete with those sorts of numbers?
For most of this season, it seemed like many people didn’t expect the Bucks to make their way back to the NBA Finals.
That would be a huge feat to accomplish any year but it would be even more difficult this year.
Due to the tough competition in the East, the Bucks have their work cut out for themselves.
Earlier in the season, the top of the East was crowded with the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and more.
The Bucks were always competitive, of course, but they didn’t reach the top.
However, now the Bucks are in second place right behind the Heat and are passing the 76ers, Boston Celtics, and Bulls..
They have become laser-focused in the last few weeks and are more tuned in than ever before.
Therefore, it’s not crazy to imagine the team going all the way again this year.
If they pull that off, it’ll be because of the team’s wonderful, unparalleled big three.
