NEW YORK (Reuters) – Milwaukee basketball players have already beaten a Brooklyn 124: 118 playoff player in a hit on Tuesday’s NBA program and have secured a place in the Eastern Conference as the third team in the Eastern Conference. With 36 points and 12 rebounds, Janis Adetokunbo shone, the Nets without James Harden pulled Kyrie Irving with 38 and Kevin Durant with 32 points.
The Bucks decided to win over a neighbor in the conference table in the last part, which they won 32:24. They were better on the rebound (55:39) and in the game in the defined area, where they lost their opponents 44:30. In addition to Adetokunba, who hit four threes, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday scored 23 points.
“I’m glad we showed a good performance in front of our fans and developed good habits in tough matches, but that’s all. No one will remember such matches, especially that we are in the playoffs,” said Adetokunbo after the second victory over the Nets in three days.
Brooklyn lost for the third time in a row and lags behind the first Philadelphia by one win in one extra game played. “I have to give credit to my opponent. Especially in the fourth part he played great and hit heavy shots,” Durant stated. The Nets have lost 10 of 19 games without Harden, and they have 27-7 in the lineup since they arrived from Houston.
The second team of the Western Conference Phoenix won 134: 118 after extra time in Cleveland and called the Utah leader (47-18). Devin Booker contributed 31 points to this, seconded by Chris Paul with 23 points and 16 rebounds. The Suns took an overwhelming 20: 4 overtime and could throw Booker’s unchanged three over their heads 1.5 seconds before the end of normal time.
“We hit first in the setup, quickly gained a lead and, most importantly, did not slow down,” praised Mikail Bridges, author of 22 points. In the Cavaliers team, he set a personal record with 32 points, rookie Isaac Okoro, Collin Sexton added 29.
Not even 37 points and eight Stephen Curry threes were enough help for the Golden State and the Warriors lost 103: 108 in New Orleans. At least Star Curry has reached another milestone, as he has accumulated at least 300 threes per season for the fourth time in his career. Apart from him, only Harden has managed something like that in the history of the league, and only once. For the Pelicans, who are one win behind the position for the pre-round of the playoffs, Lonzo Ball equalized the personal maximum with 33 points.
Dallas defeated last year’s 127: 113 finalists in the Miami Hall, thanks in large part to Tim Hardaway’s 36 points. An experienced shooter hit ten threes and equaled the club record. Luka Dončič seconded him with 23 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists.
