The Nets have jumped out to a 2-0 series lead vs. the Bucks, and the series now shifts to Milwaukee for Game 3. No team in NBA history has ever come back from an 0-3 series deficit, so this is essentially a must-win contest for the Bucks. Luckily for them, the Nets will be playing at less than full strength. Harden is currently dealing with a hamstring injury, which caused him to miss most of Game 1 and all of Game 2. Now, he’s been ruled out for Game 3.
Bruce Brown replaced Harden in the starting lineup in Game 2, and he will likely draw another start on Thursday. He finished with 26.2 FanDuel points in that contest, so he will be an interesting value option pending a large price increase. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving should also benefit from increased usage rates, and they combined for 54 points on 21-35 shooting in Game 2.
Despite dropping the first two contests, the Bucks are currently listed as 3.5-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
