With the Nets big three all in their stride, they're coming into the Eastern Conference Semis as heavy favorites against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks.
But if there's any team that stands a chance at knocking the Nets out, it's got to be the Bucks, who not only have a near 7-foot, 2x MVP but whose roster also includes Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday.
Still, many fans are not convinced that the Bucks have enough. On Twitter, the upcoming series became the subject of conversation after the Nets closed out Boston in Game 5:
Obviously, beating a team with 3 NBA superstars is going to be tough. Durant, Kyrie, and James Harden have been stellar all year long, and they've looked great on the court together.
Against Boston, especially in Game 5, the trio looked to be at the top of their game.
But the Bucks have a guy in Giannis who is not only excellent on defense, but who is also impossible to stop offensively. It will be interesting to see how the Nets deal with him, and if the Bucks have enough juice t overpower such a star-studded opponent.
The series officially starts this weekend, when Milwaukee heads to Brooklyn for Game 1.
