How the Bucks Beat the Nets
Lets break down how the Bucks beat the Nets on Friday night in Brooklyn. The game was decided by another night of poor shooting from James Harden, the absence of Kyrie Irving, and oppressive three point shooting from the Bucks. Giannis was a constant threat on the pick and roll early in the game, which opened up continual threes from Kris Middleton, Jordan Nwora, and even Giannis himself. The Bucks also dominated the boards, with Giannis and the rookie Sandro Mamukalashvili (have fun pronouncing that) getting the bucks the lead in 2nd chance points.
The Nets attempted to rally in the 4th, with Nate Claxton becoming the Nets best scoring threat late in the game. He took on Giannis directly, getting a commanding dunk and stopping him for a jump ball. Even though the Nets showed late life, they were immediately answered by the defending NBA champs with a couple quick threes from Nwora and Giannis. Thanasis was put into the game to close out the night as the Bucks went ahead by 20. He ran around, missed shots, and got thunderous blocks, but at least he didn’t nearly kill someone tonight with a late jump.
The Nets need Kyrie Irving back as soon as possible. Kevin Durant and James Harden look tired and don’t seem to be able to function properly without an energetic scoring threat on the floor. The Nets defense was always a little suspect, but they would compensate for it with a relentless scoring presence. They might look down now, but look for the Nets to make a late season surge for a high playoff seeding. Check out the webstory below for highlights from the game!
