NBA Playoffs Game 3: Bucks Vs. NetsPublished June 10, 2021 by Sol FH
The Nets have destroyed the Bucks over two games in the Eastern Conference Semifinal and must get a win in Game 3 tonight at 00:30 GMT
It has been a rough start to the Eastern Conference Semifinals for the Milwaukee Bucks who are down 2-0 after two thrashings by the Brooklyn Nets. Even though the Nets have been without veteran Jeff Green and all-star James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Blake Griffin have picked up the pace and the Bucks have not found an answer.
The Bucks' chances of coming back are slim, especially now that Jeff Green and James Harden are expected to return for Game 4. Jeff Green spoke to the press for the first time since suffering the left plantar fascia strain, which’s kept him out of the last five postseason games.
“Jeff is out for tomorrow but is progressing nicely. We hope he’s back if not Game 4 or Game 5, but he’s definitely on the right track and I think highly possible that he plays sooner rather than later,” said Nets' head coach Steve Nash on Green during Wednesday’s practice.
While Green is getting closer to his return, Nash ruled out James Harden for Game 3, while he deals with right hamstring tightness.
“James will miss Game 3 but he is progressing nicely as well. We’re optimistic that we can have him back at some point but we can’t set a timeline yet,” Nash commented.
The Bucks must take control of the home-court advantage tonight and start the game with better shooting and defense, easier said than done.
