In Game 5, Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant turned in what was easily one of the greatest performances in NBA postseason history. He racked up a ridiculous stat line of 49 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists while also playing all 48 minutes in the Nets’ crucial Game 5 win.
The Bucks came out with a lot of energy and ran up their lead to 14 points heading into the start of the second quarter.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was refusing to settle for perimeter jump shots and the Bucks were running a lot more dribble-handoffs and improvised plays to create easy offense.
But even with James Harden playing like a shell of himself — he finished the game 1-10 from the field — the Nets were able to close the half down “only” 16 points.
Milwaukee didn’t play with a sense of urgency once it had a sizable lead, allowing Brooklyn to gain some confidence and work its way back into the game.
Despite Durant’s supernova scoring performance, this series has yet to hit the over. The first four games of this series went under and Game 5 was a push on that total.
Our latest PRO Report shows that even with Harden again expected to play, wiseguys are backing the under on Thursday night.
