At the Fiserv Forum, the Brooklyn Nets team jumped into the rectangle with everything and as the minutes went by, Kevin Durant began to gravitate for his team. On the other side Giannis Antetokounmpo assumed offensive responsibility and together with PJ Tucker they caused the visit not to go away on the scoreboard. At the end of the period Kyrie Irving took over the team and with a good closing of the period allowed the Nets to stay with the first 12 minutes for 26-23.
In the complement of the first half, the Bucks completely changed their way of playing and with the development of the game they took the leading role in the actions. Khris Middleton was the main offensive weapon in this passage of the game and with his outside launch he began to hurt a defense that at times was very unstable. The Greek star was added to the good moment of the perimeter and they began to balance the comparison in favor of the tenants. Blake Griffin tried to contain the clean and jerk from the hosts but could do nothing for Mike Budenholzer’s team to go to the long break winning 53-48.
After the stop, Milwaukee continued to dominate the shares led by Jrue Holiday. The experienced point guard took over the lead and not only collaborated with his scores, but also assisted the best placed. Antetokounmpo was in charge of bringing out all his talent and the locals took advantage of the good moment of the franchise player. Middleton joined Giannis’s feast and that ended the game for the home team. Durant looked for alternatives but in the absence of Irving in the meeting, nothing could reverse the development of the meeting for those led by Steve Nash. The Bucks entered the last 12 to play, winning 81-69.
In the final period no one could change history. The attempts of the Nets were all halfway while Antetokounmpo continued to increase his personal account. Irving’s injury suffered in the second quarter after falling on Giannis’s foot, plus the absence of James Harden who has not been present since Game 1, is playing a trick on the Brooklyn that tonight him they tied the semifinal at 2. The game ended up in the hands of Milwaukee 107-96.
The top scorer of the match was Giannis Antetokounmpo with 34 points and 12 rebounds, while Kevin Durant stood out as the loser with 28 points and 13 rebounds.
