In Thursday’s Duke Brotherhood Playoff action, the Brooklyn Nets, playing without the injured Kyrie Irving, fell to the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-89. After his epic Game 5, where Kevin Durant had 49 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists, the 6-10 star had a somewhat more mortal game with “just” 32 points and 11 rebounds.
James Harden, struggling with a hamstring injury, scored 16.
As far as we’re aware, Irving is not expected back for Game 7 on Saturday, which will be played in Brooklyn.
On Friday, Seth Curry and the 76ers will try to force Game 7 with the Atlanta Hawks and Quin Snyder’s Utah Jazz will try to do the same with the LA Clippers.
Cam Reddish has been cleared by Atlanta’s medical staff but is not conditioned enough to play Friday.
