Game 3 between the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks really stunk. It was an all-out rock fight between two teams that looked absolutely exhausted, could not hit any shots, and played the kind of cagey, next-basket-wins battle that defined basketball an era or two before the modern day. Ultimately, the Bucks survived, 86-83.
It was a monstrous win for the Bucks. A loss would have put them in an insurmountable, 3-0 hole against a Nets team that is capable of blowing the doors off of an opponent on a given night. Instead, Milwaukee is one game away from tying this series up on their home floor against a Brooklyn side that does not have James Harden — or, rather, they have not had Harden, but there’s been no indication about his ability to play in Game 4.
A 2-2 series shifting back to New York after the Bucks have won two in a row is markedly different than a 3-1 series in the Barclays Center where the Nets have the opportunity to put it away. This one is going to be fun.
