Kevin Durant, Nets get Jeff Green back for Game 4

Nets, Jeff Green, Game 4, Bucks, Kevin Durant

The Brooklyn Nets received some good news ahead of Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. However, it wasn’t due to James Harden.

According to Malika Andrews of ESPN, Jeff Green has been cleared to play in Game 4 as the Nets aim to go up 3-1 over the Bucks in the series and push closer to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Still, the return of Green is a huge plus for Brooklyn. Green has been out since May 25 and has been a key rotational piece for Steve Nash’s squad all season long and his absence has forced the Nets to dive a little bit deeper into their bench.

The Nets seemed in total control of the series after winning the first two games in Brooklyn and a 39-point drubbing in Game 2. However, Game 3 was completely opposite as neither team scored more than 100 points and the Bucks walked away with the victory after a Jrue Holiday game-winner. 

Now the Nets will try and claim a 3-1 lead and avoid the Bucks from tying the series. As they await news on James Harden who barely played in Game 1 of the series, they at least get good news regarding Jeff Green as their quest for an NBA title continues.
