NBA Playoffs: Conference Semifinals Game 6Published June 17, 2021 by Sol FH
The series between the Nets vs Bucks is heating up, as Brooklyn one win away from Conference Finals. Game 6 tip-off at 1:30 GMT.
After a huge night from Kevin Durant, wherein he scored 49-points, 17-rebounds, and 11-assists, the Nets took back control of the Conference semifinals with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Nets won Game 5 114-108, but it was definitely the Durant Show.
Kevin Durant has been on fire throughout the first four games of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Each coming from a combination of points/rebounds. Last night was something special, though, as he recorded the greatest triple-double in NBA playoff history and a Game 5 win.
The Nets were up 2-0 until the Bucks came back and tied things up and two games apiece. With Kyrie Irving still out and James Harden still tender in his knee, Durant really elevated his play, and the Nets also received a great performance by Jeff Green who scored 27, and Blake Griffin who scored 17.
The Bucks played a decent game with Giannis scoring 39, Middleton with 25, and Holiday with 19, but, it wasn't enough to stop the Nets.
Tonight, we will see if the Nets can close out the Bucks and move to the Conference Finals against either the Hawks or the 76ers (Hawks 3-2).
The Bucks will need to find an answer for Durant who is destroying their defense on virtually every time he gets the ball. Durant is playing some of the best playoff basketball of his career and funding holes throughout the Bucks' defense like Swiss cheese.
