While they had seemed well matched on paper, the Bucks looked clueless in the first two games. In the first game against the Nets, Milwaukee were horrendous from the perimeter, shooting only 6 of their 30 attempted three points.

They might have dominated the paint, but ultimately the triples resulted in a 115-107 loss for the Bucks. In game two, the Bucks were even worse as they were horrendous in the paint as well and ultimately were blown out by 39 points as the Nets won the game 125-86.

But Giannis and Co. made a resounding comeback in game 3. While their supporting cast still did not put up impressive numbers, the likes of Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo stepped up and scored a combined 68 points. This performance by Middleton and Giannis resulted in a 86-83 win and now the series is well poised at 2-1.

While the Bucks might have won game 3, much of it was because of the shots missed by the Nets. The Bucks will hope that their role players can step up this time and outscore the Nets.
