The Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets face off at the Fiserv Forum on Tuesday night in the opening game of the 2021-22 NBA regular season.

The Bucks beat the Nets in the Eastern Conference finals last season and eventually won their first championship in five decades after beating the Phoenix Suns in the finals.

Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday all return to lead the Bucks in their quest to win consecutive championships.

Big men Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez are still with the Bucks. Milwaukee got George Hill, Rodney Hood and Grayson Allen in the offseason. Portis and Hood, however, are not expected to play in this game due to injuries.

The Nets will be led by superstars Kevin Durant and James Harden but Kyrie Irving will not play because of his refusal to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Joe Harris, Bruce Brown and Blake Griffin also return this season. Brooklyn acquired veterans LaMarcus Aldridge, Patty Mills and Paul Millsap in the offseason.


The Bucks are slightly favoured to win the opener and we expect them to cover the spread in this game.
