The Milwaukee Bucks reeled themselves back into the ball game after a hard-fought Eastern Conference semifinals Game 3. Now, they close down the deficit to one game and are gearing up to tie the series on Sunday night. Although both the Bucks and the Nets struggled to make baskets throughout the game, it was only until the final minutes until Khris Middleton and Kevin Durant started draining shots.
The Bucks took advantage of the opportunity and closed out the game in front of their home crowd with a 86-83 victory. Meanwhile, this narrow loss means that the Nets will look to snack Game 4 on the road to get the upper hand before heading back to the Barclays Center.

Why Bet on the Brooklyn Nets?
With airtight defense putting the pressure on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Nets summoned the services of Bruce Brown Jr. The guard did well in 38 minutes of play, scoring 16 points while securing 11 rebounds and 3 points. Most of Brooklyn’s attacking prowess went offline once the Bucks had traction on the defensive side.
Kevin Durant was limited to 30 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists in 43 minutes of play, while Irving recorded 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 assist in 45 minutes. Blake Griffin and Joe Harris were nowhere to be found as well, with the two combining for only 8 points.
Following a horrific shooting night, we expect changes in the upcoming Nets vs. Bucks game. Whether or not James Harden goes online and shows up in Game 4, the team will have to adjust to the Bucks’ incredible defense. If the ex-Houston Rockets star remains sidelined, we are looking at Kevin Durant to put in the numbers for his team. Ultimately, this shows that the Nets still have a vulnerable side and it’s exciting to see how they can bounce back from this loss .
Why Bet on the Milwaukee Bucks?
The Bucks were all business and were quick off the line in the first quarter, holding the Nets to less than double-digits for most of the 12 minutes before the final minute. We witnessed both star players determined to get out of the rut, and that’s what they did. Mike Budenholzer’s squad did exceptional on defense, giving the team a 30-11 lead at the end of the first quarter.
It was “The Greek Freak” and Khris Middleton who led the charge for the Bucks, scoring 33 points and 35 points, respectively. Both players dominated the boards as well, with Antetokounmpo collecting 14 rebounds, while Middleton had 15. Meanwhile, the rest of the team had a quiet night, with only Jrue Holiday getting close to a double-digit score, recording 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists.
The next game puts both star players to the test again, but now that they have the luxury of their home crowd, we anticipate a more comfortable outing for Giannis and Khris. If they keep on top of scoring and at the same time have a supporting cast firing on all cylinders, they can tie the series before hitting the road.

Nets vs. Bucks Expert Betting Prediction
The Bucks responded well after dropping the first two games of the series, and this victory leaves the Nets with less breathing room. Although Steve Nash and his team are favored to win in Game 4, we’ve seen that the Milwaukee Bucks can contain their relentless offense. Meanwhile, covering the spread should now be more comfortable for the Bucks with chances of winning looking better than ever.
