Ball Don't Lie: Atlanta Hawks/Milwaukee Bucks Preview

Kelly Dwyer, Trey Kerby, and Dan Devine collectively pick the Hawks to beat the Bucks in 5.33 games.

I understand that Andrew Bogut won't play a lick and that the Hawks get better every day, but this can't help but be a competitive series. The sort of series that could see Atlanta sweep Milwaukee, but only do so by a total of 19 points. Think of it as the opposite of what the Hawks and Heat came through with last year.
Along with Carlos Delfino and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Salmons will be tasked with containing the Hawks' leading scorer. But unlike those two, Salmons is going to have to try to somewhat match Johnson on offense. That's asking a lot from one guy, especially if he's John Salmons.
Devine contributes as Mark Eaton. You should probably read that in context.
