The Bucks and Nets could meet in a playoff series, which would be one to remember as the Milwaukee core of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton face off against the Brooklyn Big 3 of Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Although the Nets are obviously more talented and stronger, their chemistry remains in question considering the fact that their Big 3 have barely played together.
In contrast, the Bucks have been healthy for a majority of the season. Not to mention that they have been playing for some time now aside from their few newcomers.
Going back to Kevin Durant and PJ Tucker’s war of words, the Bucks swingman still had the last laugh after Milwaukee edged the Nets, 124-118.
Tucker played for 20 minutes and finished with three points, three rebounds and two assists. Meanwhile, Giannis led the way for the Bucks with 36 points, 12 rebounds and four dimes.
As for KD, he had 32 points, nine rebounds and six assists in a losing effort. Kyrie top-scored Brooklyn with 38, but it was obviously not enough after Antetokounmpo went hot from deep and the Bucks just kept feeding him.
The Nets are ready for the playoffs, but they need to figure out their game plan for any dominant big men they may face.
