PJ Tucker gave the Bucks 13 points, seven rebounds and continued his hassling of Kevin Durant on the defensive end. Durant had 28 points, but it took him 25 shots to get it. He was also just 1-for-8 from beyond the arc, part of Brooklyn’s 10-for-33 effort from 3.
The Nets, already playing without James Harden due to a hamstring injury, lost guard Kyrie Irving in the second quarter to a sprained ankle. X-rays were negative but coach Steve Nash said he did not know if Irving would be available for Game 5 Tuesday night in Brooklyn.
Significant ankle sprain and with this first time injury will miss multiple games. With #KyrieIrving and #JamesHarden out rest of series, can @BrooklynNets survive as @Bucks about to pull the series even at 2-2? https://t.co/PzX5I6M8aX
