The Milwaukee Bucks have turned its Eastern Conference semifinals matchup against the Brooklyn Nets into a best of three after winning Sunday 107-96.
The Bucks were able to use a strong second and third quarters to take Game 4, outscoring the Nets 58-43 in the pair of frames. The game turned in favor of the home team in the second quarter after Nets guard Kyrie Iriving appeared to sprain his ankle going up for a rebound against Giannis Antetokounmpo. Kevin Durant had to take on the lion's share of the work the rest of the way before departing with approximately four minutes remaining in the game. Durant scored 28 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. While 13 Nets players scored on Sunday, Irving was the only other player to reach double figures.
The Bucks meanwhile five different players reach double figures, led by Antetokounmpo's 34 points. Khris Middleton chipped in 19 points while Jrue Holiday and P.J. Tucker added 14 and 13 points respectively. The Bucks hit 16 three-pointers in the win, compared to just 10 for the Nets.
