The Milwaukee Bucks look to avoid slipping into a 2-0 hole Monday night when they play the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Nets outscored the Bucks 35-23 in the third quarter and did not look back in its 115-107 win on Saturday. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points while Brook Lopez pitched in 19 and Jrue Holiday added 17 in the loss. ESPN reported Sunday that James Harden's hamstring issues from Saturday will keep him out of game two on Monday.
The opening tip at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
