Brooklyn Nets vs. Milwaukee Bucks 8/4/20

Nets vs Bucks TV Schedule

With the Bucks up 110 - 109 and three minutes remaining, Luwawu-Cabarrot made two triples in a row to puts the Nets at a six-point distance.

Brooklyn is now eight games ahead of the Washington Wizards for the final postseason spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Nets most of the players are out due to Injuries. Giannis Antetokounmpo has 29 points and 12 rebounds in the game and there have been no signs of him slowing down since he's been in Orlando.

With so many players out for Brooklyn, there isn't a true stud player in the mix.

Before the stoppage, LeVert was averaging 27.4 points in his last five games and that includes a career-high 51 points against Boston, which the Nets face Wednesday. A third starter, Eric Bledsoe, was just returning from being out with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. In warm-up gear. Cheering alongside fellow All-Star Khris Middleton.

Athletes don't generally care about point spreads, but Brooklyn knew it was up against it heading into the matchup with Milwaukee.

The Bucks didn't seem very motivated to win.

"I'm sure a lot of people wasn't expecting us to be having a close game", said the Nets' Chris Chiozza.

The Bucks, at least outwardly, did not seem to be overly bothered by the loss. Antetokounmpo totaled 29 points and 12 rebounds when Milwaukee shot almost 51 percent, hit 17 3-point shots and cruised to a 117-97 win in Brooklyn on January 18. He's projected for a big night with 57.7 points on FanDuel at a salary of $11.6k, and Giannis is a fantasy bet that just about always delivers.
