Talk about a star-studded affair
This marks the first time these heavyweights have met since the Nets defeated the Bucks 125-123 on MLK Day.
The Bucks defeated the humble Chicago Bulls on Friday evening 108-98. Milwaukee led most of the game, getting 44 points from Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez. Both Bobby Portis and Jrue Holiday also added 16 each. Bryn Forbes also finished 10 points and 13 rebounds (????).
The Brooklyn Nets were reports at home by the Portland Trail Blazers, 128-109 in their last game in which Portland sunk nearly 52% of their shots. While Kevin Durant and James Harden weren’t playing, Kyrie Irving scored 28 points on 26 shots. As a team, the Nets were only able to take 42.1% of their shots and Mike James (who’s still in the league?) Shot 6-of-15 off the field.
While James Harden has been out for an extended period of time, we should see a healthy KD and Kyrie out there against Giannis Antetokounmpo (which probably is) and the Bucks.
Joe Harris is one, if not the best three-point shooter in the NBA and I bet he will be extremely busy this afternoon. Durant and Irving get so much attention defensively that it’s easy to forget about Joe Harris, who seemingly seems to be open again and again. A big game from Harris today can certainly help tip the needle in Brooklyn’s favor.
