Brooklyn Nets vs. Milwaukee Bucks Odds For Game 6
Kevin Durant reminded the entire NBA that he’s the best player in the world during Game 5, going off for 49 points to lead the Nets to a win in Game 5 and a 3-2 series lead. Now, the series returns to Milwaukee with a chance to close it out for the Nets.

Brooklyn Nets Preview
The Nets are severely injured. James Harden looked like a shell of himself in Game 5 and Kyrie Irving is out with an injury. Still, none of that mattered because Kevin Durant is the best pure scorer in the NBA and one of the best ever. He completely dominated from the opening tip to the final whistle in Game 5, and if the Bucks are going to win and take this thing to seven games they need someone to slow him down.
I say slow him down because stopping Kevin Durant is impossible. He’s 6-foot-10, can play with his back to the basket, beat you off the dribble or shoot lights out. Pick your poison. In theory, James Harden should look healthier this time out. Kyrie Irving’s status is unknown, but I wouldn’t expect him to play while nursing an ankle injury. Still, as good as the Bucks are, I’m not sure it matters. If Durant plays like that you may as well hand Brooklyn the title.
Milwaukee Bucks Preview
Giannis Antetokounmpo has failed to scroe 30 points just once in this series and still his team faces a 3-2 deficit after Game 5. Top to bottom, I think the Bucks are probably a more complete team than the Nets. But, it’s hard to battle all that star power Brooklyn has.
For me, this series has always come down to Khris Middleton. He scored 25 points in Game 5 but I’m far from ready to call it a good game. He can’t afford to go 8-22 from the floor and 3-10 from beyond the arc. He needs to score and do so efficiently if the Bucks are going to hang around.
