Bucks vs Nets Game 2 live score online: NBA playoff statistics, highlights, updates …


Hello everyone and welcome to New York where Brooklyn Nets try to take a two-to-zero lead over the Milwaukee Bucks before the series moves to Wisconsin. AS English will provide live coverage, updates, scores and highlights from tonight’s contest at the Barclays Center which kicks off at 7:30 am ET.

Jame Harden out for Game 2 with hamstring strain

The headline for tonight’s game is the expected absence of James Harden. Harden twisted his hamstrings in the opening minute of the first game and was diagnosed with stiff right hamstrings.

The Nets handled the Bucks, despite Harden being absent for 47 minutes. Milwaukee put them to work to close the first game. The injury shot had Brooklyn against the ropes early on and Steve Nash’s team once against found themselves without one of their Big Three.

Nets are no stranger to playing without the entire Big Three

It’s a situation that has become all too common for the boys at Barclays Center. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden all had long stints on the sidelines during the regular season, they are therefore used to having to face the best teams with a small team.

Milwaukee brought them closer in the first quarter, but Brooklyn took the lead in the second and never gave up. A big third quarter put the game out of reach for the Bucks, who did a late charge in the last quarter, but by then it was too little too late.

KD led Brooklyn, but Griffin stole the show in Game 1

With Harden out, KD and Irving should step up, and they did. Durant led the winning team with 29 points and 10 rebounds. Kyrie had 25 points and delivered 8 assists. Mike James provided key production on the bench with 12 points and Blake Griffin had his best game for the Nets with 18 points and 14 rebounds.

Giannis Antetoukounmpo made another fantastic change scoring 34 and grabbing 11 plates. Brook Lopez followed with 19, but failed to grab a defensive rebound. The Bucks only went 6 for 20 behind the arc in Game 1.

All four games this season have been close

Harden has been ruled out for tonight’s Game 2, and Milwaukee will want a win in Wisconsin. The season series is tied at 2-2 after Brooklyn’s victory on Saturday. The eight-point win was the series’ biggest margin of victory for either team this season.. The first two games were split between the Bucks and the Nets, in a two-point game and a three-point game. Just a week before the end of the regular season, the Bucks beat the Hardenless Big Three 124-118.
