Nets drop Game 3 crusher to Bucks

Nets drop Game 3 crusher to Bucks

The Bucks just reminded the Nets that it takes seven games to win a series.

The Nets, who blew out the Bucks in Game 2, suffered a hard-fought 86-83 loss Thursday night in Milwaukee and now hold a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal.

Jrue Holiday overcame his game-long struggles to score the go-ahead basket in the closing seconds and Khris Middleton, who had a game-high 35 points to go along with 15 rebounds, hit two free throws to close out the win. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 33 for Milwaukee.
