Let’s agree to put Game 3 between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks behind us, yeah?

Once again we won’t be seeing James Harden play in Sunday’s Game 4 matchup, but we also won’t see the Nets score under 90 points - maybe ever again?

You have to think that we’re in for a wild one on Sunday afternoon, which is where you like to see this Nets team playing, The wilder, the better.

Join us, as always, after tonight’s game on Clubhouse for a live chat!

WHO: Brooklyn Nets (2-1) at Milwaukee Bucks (1-2)


WHERE: ESPN (tv and streaming), WFAN-FM (radio)

Game Preview

“The Nets picked on Brook Lopez in the p&r, but our old friend still managed to make life tough on his former team on the inside with six blocks in 35 minutes. He’s a great rim deterrent and whenever he’s by the basket, it’s tough to finish over and around him. It doesn’t look like the Bucks will deviate too much from their drop strategy on pick and rolls, so the Nets will have their fair share of midrange jumpers if they want them.

Interestingly, Brooklyn hasn’t gotten to the free throw line very often this series. In the three games, Milwaukee has out-attempted them at the line 47 to 24. During the regular season, Brooklyn was eighth in free throw rate. However, the Bucks were tops in opponents free throw rate as they barely allowed opponents to get to the line. When your shots aren’t falling, free points at the line help keep things going and with the Nets being the best free throw shooting team in the playoffs, they’re automatic at the line. We’ll see if Brooklyn can get to the rim and draw some more contact today.”
