Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets
Date and Time: Tuesday, June 15,2021 8:30am
Venue: Barclays Center
Prediction: Brooklyn Nets
Milwaukee Late in the fourth quarter, Giannis Antetokounmpo turned the ball over. His frustration evident, he took off down the court, sprinting so fast that when he launched himself in the air to try and disrupt Alize Johnson, he had to grab onto the rim to make sure he landed safely. A few seconds later, after he’d regained his balance, he obliterated a Reggie Perry hook shot to start a fastbreak that he finished with an alley-oop slam.
That flurry from the two-time MVP was the exclamation point on a 107-96 Game 4 win for the Milwaukee Bucks as they evened their second-round series with the Brooklyn Nets at 2-2. Leading the way as per usual, Giannis finished with 34 points and 12 rebounds for his third game in this series with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds.
On either side of their hero’s thrilling sequence in the final minutes, the jubilant crowd inside Fiserv Forum broke into their favorite chant: “Bucks in six!” This time last week, following the Bucks’ embarrassing loss in Game 2, that would have been unthinkable. Now, it’s a real possibility, especially with James Harden and Kyrie Irving possibly unavailable moving forward.
In the middle of the second quarter of Game 4, Irving went up for a layup and severely twisted his ankle upon landing. He went straight to the locker room once he made it to his feet, and didn’t return to the game. After he left, the Nets were outscored 63-56, and it was only even that close because they went on a run in garbage time to make the final score respectable.
