What more can you say: Game The Brooklyn Nets are looking to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night as they take on the Milwaukee Bucks in a win or go home/stay home Game 7.

Game 6 was a bit of a, well, letdown. The Nets looked gassed most of the game. Milwaukee, on the other hand, looked - fine.

Have to think this will be a Kevin Durant or bust kind of night; will need Joe Harris to show up and maybe a little/lot more from James Harden.

Who’s nervous?

Join us on Clubhouse after the game for a good laugh or cry (or both).

WHO: Brooklyn Nets (3-3) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (3-3)


WHERE: TNT, WFAN (radio)

Game Preview.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had arguably his best shooting performance of the series. The 30 points and 17 rebounds were fantastic, but what stood out most was the fact that he went 6-10 from the free throw line and didn’t take a single three pointer. When he’s rolling downhill and living at the rim, he becomes practically impossible to handle. When he’s settling for threes, he’s essentially committing turnovers and making life a million times easier for his opponents. For all the emphasis on threes now, Giannis is probably the only player I wouldn’t want to take threes. Leave that to the other folks.

Antetokuonmpo heard some razzing from the Nets fans who made the trip to Milwaukee and enraged Harden with his all day long free throw routine, so look for Nets fans at Barclays to count him down every time he’s at the line.

The Nets couldn’t wall Giannis off from the basket on Thursday and they’ll need to do that tonight. Griffin has given Giannis some trouble throughout the series and has often been Brooklyn’s most effective defender against the former MVP. Blake has been an energizer at home and the team will need every bit of energy possible from the players on the court to the fans in the arena and at home.
