Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Betting Odds and Free NBA Predictions

Speaking publicly for the first time since the Milwaukee Bucks fired head coach Jason Kidd earlier this week, Giannis Antetokounmpo admitted that he has had a hard time adjusting to the news.

Speaking to reporters after practice Wednesday, he confirmed an ESPN report from earlier in the week that said he received the news from the Bucks and called his coach approximately 15 minutes before Kidd was formally notified of the decision

Antetokounmpo wasn't with the Bucks on Monday night as they kicked off the post-Kidd era with a 109-105 victory over Phoenix, but he is expected to return from a two-game absence Friday night when Milwaukee welcomes the Brooklyn Nets to the Bradley Center.

The NBA's leader in minutes per game this season (37.4) and second-leading scorer (28.2) sat out Milwaukee's last two outings to rest and receive treatment on a sore right knee that had bothered him since the summer.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson knows firsthand how hard it is to keep Antetokounmpo in check; he coached the "Greek Freak" during the Risings Stars Challenge at the 2015 All-Star Game.

The Nets come to Milwaukee looking to bounce back from a 109-108 heartbreaker at Oklahoma City earlier this week. Spencer Dinwiddie gave Brooklyn a one-point lead, converting a driving layup in the closing seconds, but Russell Westbrook returned the favor and Dinwiddie's attempt at a game-winning 3-pointer fell short.

Dinwiddie has been a pleasant surprise for Brooklyn this season, averaging 13.4 points and 6.6 assists per game. That performance has also made him a prime trade candidate, though the four-year vet is hoping to stick around Brooklyn for a while.

The Bucks have won eight in a row against Brooklyn and have taken five consecutive meetings at the Bradley Center.
