Sunday, May 2nd finds the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks meeting for only the second time this season. The initial meeting occurred on January 18th with the Nets winning 125-123.
This match is the first of a two-game series that will undoubtedly have playoff level intensity as the Bucks are still covetous of moving up in the seeding.
In that first meeting between the clubs the superstars rose to the challenge with Giannis Antetokounmpo registering a double-double of a 34 points and 12 rebounds. James Harden also produced a double-double of 34 points and 12 assists. Harden is definitely out in this match but the Bucks say Antetokounmpo is probable.
The Bucks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 102 wins in 177 meetings. Because of the pandemic the clubs only faced each other twice last season, with each team taking one contest.
The Nets enter this match seated atop the Eastern Conference having displace the 76ers but that positon is precarious at best with only a slim 0.5 edge over Philly.
After sitting out earlier in the week Kyrie Irving played Friday versus the Blazers but Kevin Durant sat. It ended up costing the Nets as they got roasted 128-109 by Portland.
Irving led the way with 28 points but wasn’t as active with his playmaking as he shouldered the offensive burden. Jeff Green (16), Mike James (15), Joe Harris (12), and Blake Griffin (11) were the other double figure contributors.
In their match on Friday versus the Blazers, Bruce Brown (knee) and Nicolas Claxton (protocols) didn’t play but should be back for Sunday.
James Harden (hamstring) is out again as is Chris Chiozza (hand), and Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is lost for the season.
With Antetokounmpo suffering another injury after just returning from a previous ankle sprain it’s interesting he’s listed as probable on the NBA injury report.
The fact the Bucks are even risking him playing speaks to how important they view these next two games. Regardless of whether Giannis plays Milwaukee will need Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton to step up their games and counter the superstar talent on the opposite side of the court.
Middleton is registering his best 3-point average this season shooting a blistering 42 percent from deep along a career-high 5.5 assists.
In the win versus the Bulls all five Bucks starters and Jeff Teague (11) reached double-figure scores with Middleton and Brook Lopez leading the way scoring 22 points each. Holiday and Bobby Portis scored 16 each while Bryn Forbes scored 10.
Antetokounmpo sat out the match versus Chicago on Friday but as noted is listed as probabe for Sunday. Donte DiVencenzo also missed the Bulls game with a toe injury but isn’t on the injury report so presumably is good to go. Axel Toupane (oblique) is out for Sunday.NBA
