Kevin Durant can help Brooklyn take a 3-1 series lead in Game 4.

Milwaukee got their first win on the board in Game 3, bouncing back from back-to-back blowout losses.

  • Milwaukee Bucks are averaging just 93 points per game in this series
  • All 3 games have produced -227.5 total points

Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Brooklyn produced their worst offensive showing since February 27 in their Game 3 defeat to Milwaukee.

The Nets scored just 83 points as they were beaten 86-83 in Game 3 – the first time they have been kept under 100 points since the 115-98 loss to Dallas.

It was a far cry from the 125-86 Game 2 blowout of the Bucks that put Brooklyn in firm control of the series.

Kevin Durant produced another double double in the loss however, as Milwaukee again struggled to contain him.

Durant has two double doubles in this series so far and is averaging 30.3 points per game through the first three games.

The problem was in Game 3 that he got very little help from anyone else – even the tiniest but of help from anyone other than Kyrie Irving would have made it 3-0 Nets.

Durant and Irving are good to go in Game 4, but James Harden (hamstring) remains on the injury report.

Jeff Green could return from a foot injury, but Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is done for the season.

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee are back in the series after edging a low-scoring Game 3 thanks to Giannis Antetokounmpo & Khris Middleton.

Giannis dominated with 33 points and 14 rebounds, while Middleton bounced back from a miserable Game 2 with 35 points and 15 rebounds of his own.

That resulted in an 86-83 for Milwaukee and made them the first team to keep the Nets under 100 points since the end of February.

It was a solid response to back-to-back defeats in Brooklyn, the second of which was a brutal 125-86 blowout defeat.

The Bucks have an opportunity to level this series before heading back to Brooklyn, but they need more from the supporting cast in Game 4.

That supporting cast could be minus Jordan Nwora (thigh) who missed Game 3 and remains day-to-day.

Sam Merrill (ankle) has joined Nwora as being day-to-day, but one man who is definitely sidelined is Donte DiVincenzo (foot), who is done for the season.

Verdict

Milwaukee stopped the rot in Game 3 but it is difficult to see them keeping Brooklyn sub-90 points again.

If Kevin Durant had got a little more help in Game 3 the Nets would be sat at 3-0 now. He may get that help here to give Brooklyn a 3-1 lead and the chance to clinch at home.
