The Milwaukee Bucks never got into a rhythm Monday night and dropped game two of their second round playoff series to the Brooklyn Nets 125-86. Brooklyn leads the series two games to none.
Nets star Kevin Durant scored 32 points in three quarters and Brooklyn led by as much as 49 points. They led 39-16 after the first quarter and 65-41 at halftime. Kyrie Irving had 22 points. All this without star James Harden, who sat out with a tight right hamstring.
Brooklyn shot 52 percent and was 21-42 from 3-point range. The Bucks were 8-27 from downtown. Giannis Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks with 18 points and 11 rebounds.
Game Three will be in Milwaukee Thursday night.
