Bucks’ plan for getting back into Nets series
Bucks fans made Kevin Durant the villain on Thursday night.
The Nets 7-footer heard “F–k KD” chants in Milwaukee after a heated dust-up with Bucks forward P.J. Tucker in Brooklyn’s 86-83 Game 3 loss in the second-round playoff series.
The two former Texas Longhorns got in each other’s faces and exchanged words in the third quarter when Durant was fouled by Tucker.
The scuffle, which also saw Tucker spewing words at Nets point guard Kyrie Irving, was quickly separated by other players on each team, as well as coaches. Security even stepped in before things could escalated.
Both Durant and Tucker were handed technical fouls.
Durant struggled through the first three quarters of the game.
His old Warriors teammate, Draymond Green tweeted, “K is having a miserable night!”
At the time, Durant had 11 points on 4-of-16 shooting. He finished the night with 30 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
Tucker, known more his shutdown defensive ability, recorded zero points, one rebound and two assists in 33 minutes.
The Nets were still without James Harden (hamstring) and Jeff Green (left foot plantar fascia strain) in Game 3.
Brooklyn leads the series 2-1 with Game 4 set for Sunday in Milwaukee.
