The Milwaukee Bucks were looking for a momentum-shifting win to even their second-round playoff series with the Brooklyn Nets, but a demoralizing loss came instead on Monday. The Nets had a fast start, outscoring the Bucks 36-19 in the first quarter. They never looked back, as the Bucks fell by a 125-86 final score. No scorers reached twenty points for Milwaukee, as Giannis Antetokounmpo had 18 and Khris Middleton scored 17.
The Bucks have a couple of days to regroup before Thursday’s game three in the Fiserv Forum. Tip-off for Thursday’s battle is at 6:30 PM.
