The Milwaukee Bucks advanced to the Eastern Conference playoffs after defeating the Brooklyn Nets in Game 7 of their second-round series 115-111 in overtime. Kevin Durant’s 3 pointer shot came as a turning point for the Nets leaving no space for the Bucks to take over the edge. Bucks will now compete with the winning team from Sunday's Game 7 between the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern semifinal matchup.
Durant’s exceptional play helped the team to make a cut to the East finals. The 32-year old basketball player scored a Game 7 record 48 points and hit an incredible shot at the end of regulation to send the game to overtime in the first place. If the Bucks win there, they will secure their spot in NBA Finals for the first time since 1974.
