MADRID, 16 Jun. ` –
Kevin Durant’s historic triple.double (49 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists) has led the Brooklyn Nets to the comeback against the Milwaukee Bucks (114.108) and to lead (3.2) in this semifinal of the Eastern Conference.
Never before in the history of the ‘Playoffs’ had a player been able to finish a game with at least 45 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists, and the first to break that barrier was Durant (16/23 in shooting), who threw his team on his back before the loss of Kyrie Irving and the ill.advised night of James Harden (0/8 in triples).
Hand in hand with their forward, the Nets came back from a deficit that reached 17 points in the first half and overcame the resistance of another MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who also completed a great performance with 34 points, 12 rebounds and 14/22 in launches. Thus, Brooklyn is one victory away from the East final in this series that now returns to Milwaukee.
