The Milwaukee Bucks narrowly avoided falling 3-0 on Thursday night, beating Brooklyn by three points to win Game 3 at their home level.
However, despite the Brooklyn defeat, the NBA community couldn’t stop talking about Kevin Durant, who would have stolen the game on the track on his own if he hadn’t missed his potential game winner.
All in all, Durant had a fantastic game. He lost 30 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. Of course, he also shot a miserable 39% off the field, with one of his misses being a shot that could have changed the outcome of the entire game.
Either way, since the bucks go into game 4 and have a chance to tie the streak at 2, they have all the momentum. If Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton can continue their dominant performance (they scored 68 points together) they could easily turn things around.
No matter what, Kevin Durant won’t go quietly though. He’s a 2x Finals MVP for good reason, and while he didn’t take the win on Thursday, you don’t count him out in Game 4 or in the future.
He does his best when the critics and doubters are the loudest.
