Nets were already without injured Kyrie Irving (ankle injury) and James Harden (hamstring) and without the powerful duo they were struggling against Milwaukee Bucks. That is until Kevin Durant exploded with 49 points (on 16-of-23 shooting), 17 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks on Tuesday’s 114-108 win over Milwaukee Bucks. Nets now lead the playoff series with 3-2.
Durant even threw down a three-point over Middleton right at the end of the match. While Green posted 27 points and was 7-of-8 from three and Blake Griffin added 17. Nets remain powerful still but Bucks would not be easy to beat as well with their star-studded roster that includes the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton who scored 34 and 25 points respectively for the Bucks.
