Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets - 3:00pm ET (ABC) - Brooklyn leads 2-1
Milwaukee was on the ropes, trailing 2-0 in the series and 83-80 with 1:23 left in Game 3. Fortunately for Bucks supporters, buckets by Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday allowed Milwaukee to pull ahead and prevail in an 86-83 win. It was one uglier offensive playoff games you’ll ever see, but it kept hope alive in the Cream City. Given Danny Green’s injury, Sixers fans will want this series to go as long as possible. Giannis Antetokounmpo not attempting another eight 3-pointers would be a good start. Go Bucks!
Denver Nuggets vs. Phoenix Suns - 8:00pm ET (TNT) - Phoenix leads 3-0
Nikola Jokic receiving his MVP award on his home court wasn’t sufficient help for the Nuggets prior to Game 3, as Phoenix won 116-102 to take a commanding 3-0 series lead. We’ll see if the Nuggets can pull it together to avoid the sweep, or if the Suns will stay hot and earn themselves some extended rest awaiting the winner of the Jazz-Clippers series.
