After dropping two games in Brooklyn, the Milwaukee Bucks brought a much better effort on Thursday night in Game 3 of their best-of-seven series against the Nets as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton had huge performances. In the end, it was the Bucks that came away with a 86-83 victory in that always important Game 3 matchup.
After leading the way in the first quarter for the Bucks, Antetokounmpo and Middleton continued to make big plays when Milwaukee needed them the most to come away with the win. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combined for 55 points for the Nets but, in the end, that was not enough to get the job done.
With the win, the series moves to 2-1 with Game 4 scheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m. ET with ABC handling the broadcast.
