Nets vs. Bucks score, takeaways: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee pick up big win over Brooklyn in Game 3
After dropping two games in Brooklyn, the Milwaukee Bucks brought a much better effort on Thursday night in Game 3 of their best-of-seven series against the Nets. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton both had huge performances for Milwaukee and the duo combined for 68 total points. Thanks largely to their output, the Bucks were able to pull out a crucial 86-83 win over the Nets in Game 3. With the win, the Bucks avoided falling into a deep 3-0, as the series now sits at a more manageable 2-1. 

After jumping all over the Nets early on, the Bucks were able to sustain a solid effort over the full 48 minutes of the game  — and that’s exactly what it took, since the game came down to the final possession. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combined for 55 points for the Nets but, in the end, their production wasn’t enough to get the job done, especially since they didn’t get too much help from the rest of the roster, aside from Bruce Brown, who had a good game. 

The win was a solid one for the Bucks, and it was a tough loss for the Nets. But, neither team can dwell on it for too long because the two teams will be back in action on Sunday for Game 4. Before skipping forward to that game though, here are three takeaways from Milwaukee’s Game 3 victory. 

1. The Bucks avoid a historically insurmountable deficit
The odds are against the Bucks in this series. They lost the first two games to the Nets, and teams that fall behind 2-0 in a best-of-seven series go on to lose that series over 97 percent of the time. But while coming back after being down 2-0 is an unlikely feat, it’s not an impossible one, as it’s been done many time in the most. Earlier this postseason the Clippers bested the Mavericks in seven games after dropping the first two games. Being down 3-0, though, is a different story. No team in NBA history has ever come back after being down 3-0 in a series. So, that’s what the Bucks were facing heading into Game 3. Fortunately for them, they were ultimately able to pull out a win and avoid that historically unsurmountable 3-0 hole. A 2-1 series is much more manageable, especially since two of the next three games will be in Milwaukee. 

2. Milwaukee’s stars outproduced Brooklyn’s stars
The NBA is a star-driven league, and that’s especially true in the playoffs where teams tend to go as far as their top-tier players propel them. In Game 3, Milwaukee’s All-Star duo of Middleton and Antetokounmpo had a more productive performance than Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving did for Brooklyn. Together, Antetokounmpo and Middleton combined for 68 points and 29 rebounds. Those 68 points were 79 percent of Milwaukee’s total point production — no duo in NBA playoff history has ever scored a higher percentage of their team’s total points. 

On the other side, Durant and Irving combined for 52 points and 16 rebounds, which isn’t terrible, but it pales in comparison to Milwaukee’s duo. Moving forward, the Bucks will need more performances like this one from Antetokounmpo and Middleton is they’re going to pull off the series upset.  

3.  A forgettable game for Joe Harris
Joe Harris is one of the best shooters in the entire NBA, but you wouldn’t know it from watching Game 2. Harris had opportunity after opportunity to give Brooklyn a boost with his shooting, but he was unable to time and again. Harris played 37 minutes in the game, and he made just one shot, despite attempting 11. That’s a shooting percentage of nine. The Nets depend on Harris to provide ancillary scoring support to their stars, and he was unable to deliver for Brooklyn in Game 3. The good news for the Nets is that they only lost the game by three despite Harris’ struggles, and he’s unlikely to shoot that poorly again. 

After dropping two games in Brooklyn, the Milwaukee Bucks brought a way better effort on Thursday night in Game 3 of their best-of-seven series against the Nets. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton both had huge performances for Milwaukee and therefore the duo combined for 68 total points. Thanks largely to their output, the Bucks were ready to pull out an important 86-83 convert the Nets in Game 3. With the win, the Bucks avoided falling into a deep 3-0, because the series now sits at a more manageable 2-1.

After jumping everywhere the Nets early , the Bucks were ready to sustain a solid effort over the complete 48 minutes of the sport — and that is exactly what it took, since the sport decreased to the ultimate possession. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combined for 55 points for the Nets but, within the end, their production wasn’t enough to urge the work done, especially since they didn’t get an excessive amount of help from the remainder of the roster, apart from Bruce Brown, who had an honest game.

The win was a solid one for the Bucks, and it had been a troublesome loss for the Nets. But, neither team can linger over it for too long because the 2 teams are going to be back in action on Sunday for Game 4. Before skipping forward thereto game though, here are three takeaways from Milwaukee’s Game 3 victory.

1. The Bucks avoid a historically insurmountable deficit
The odds are against the Bucks during this series. They lost the primary two games to the Nets, and teams that fall behind 2-0 during a best-of-seven series continue to lose that series over 97 percent of the time. But while returning after being down 2-0 is an unlikely feat, it isn’t an impossible one, as it has been done many time within the most. Earlier this postseason the Clippers bested the Mavericks in seven games after dropping the primary two games. Being down 3-0, though, may be a different story. No team in NBA history has ever come after being down 3-0 during a series. So, that is what the Bucks were facing heading into Game 3. Fortunately for them, they were ultimately ready to pull out a win and avoid that historically unsurmountable 3-0 hole. A 2-1 series is far more manageable, especially since two of subsequent three games are going to be in Milwaukee.

2. Milwaukee’s stars out produced Brooklyn’s stars
The NBA may be a star-driven league, and that is very true within the playoffs where teams tend to travel as far as their top-tier players propel them. In Game 3, Milwaukee’s All-Star duo of Middleton and Antetokounmpo had a more productive performance than Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving did for Brooklyn. Together, Antetokounmpo and Middleton combined for 68 points and 29 rebounds. Those 68 points were 79 percent of Milwaukee’s total point production — no duo in NBA playoff history has ever scored a better percentage of their team’s total points.

On the opposite side, Durant and Irving combined for 52 points and 16 rebounds, which isn’t terrible, but it pales as compared to Milwaukee’s duo. Moving forward, the Bucks will need more performances like this one from Antetokounmpo and Middleton is they go to tug off the series upset.

3. A forgettable game for Joe Harris
Joe Harris is one among the simplest shooters within the entire NBA, but you would not realize it from watching Game 2. Harris had opportunity after opportunity to offer Brooklyn a lift together with his shooting, but he was unable to time and again. Harris played 37 minutes within the game, and he made only one shot, despite attempting 11. That’s a shooting percentage of nine. The Nets depend upon Harris to supply ancillary scoring support to their stars, and he was unable to deliver for Brooklyn in Game 3. the great news for the Nets is that they only lost the sport by three despite Harris’ struggles, and he’s unlikely to shoot that poorly again.

History will be made this summer at the Tokyo Olympic Games. For the first time ever, a team of equestrian athletes from Thailand will participate in a Summer Olympiad.

The Thai equestrian team earned their ticket to the Tokyo Olympics by securing an outright berth as one of two top-ranked nations, not yet qualified, at the International Equestrian Federation (FEI)-designated Olympic qualifiers for Group F and G (Africa, Middle East, Asia and Oceania) in Saumur, France and Baborówko, Poland.

While all of the best sports betting sites will offer odds on every Olympic sport, the likelihood of the Olympic newcomers from Thailand coming home with a medal will be remote. Still, that doesn’t lessen their historic accomplishment one bit.


 
The Thai equestrian team
Arinadtha Chavatanont, Weerapat Pitakanonda and Korntawat Samran compose Thailand’s first Olympic equestrian team. Chavatanont will ride Boleybawn Prince, Pitakanonda will be aboard Chateau de Versailles and Samran is riding Uster.

The country has seen riders qualify as individuals for past Olympic Games. However qualifying a team is a unique and demanding accomplishment. To gain a spot in the eventing team competition, all three riders are required to meet the Olympic standard. Just 15 countries qualified to compete in eventing.

Eventing is the supreme test of an equestrian athlete, as it encompasses competition in all three of the sport’s disciplines – Show Jumping, Dressage, and Cross Country. By qualifying in the team eventing competition, all three Thai riders are also eligible to ride in each individual competition at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Tokyo Summer Olympics will be held from July 23-August 8, 2021. The Thai riders and horses are currently training in France in preparation for the Summer Games. They will be required to relocate to Aachen, Germany in July for horse quarantine prior to the competition.

Athletes also must undergo two rounds of COVID-19 screening before being given permission to enter Japan. Once there, they will receive daily testing for the duration of the Olympics. Spectators will not be allowed to attend the Games but the International Olympic Committee is allotting one ticket per horse owner to enable them to attend the equestrian events.

A Ten Year Plan
The Olympic eventing berth is the latest step in a 10-year plan to elevate the caliber of Thailand’s equestrian program. The results speak for the work that is being done in this regard.

The Olympic eventing spot marks the third major achievement by the Thai Equestrian Federation over the past four years of competition.


 
The Thai team won a Team Bronze Medal at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta. They followed that up with double gold-medal performances in both team and individual disciplines at the 2019 FEI Asian Championships, which were held at the Thai Polo and Equestrian Club in Pattaya. Teams from 13 nations across Asia were represented in the competition.

“This is an event we hope will be repeated on a regular basis to bring the equestrian communities of Asia closer together and provide opportunities for our riders to shine and excel,” Dr. Harald Link, president of the Thailand Equestrian Federation, told Thailand Tatler.

“FEI Championships Pattaya 2019 not only positioned Thailand as a world-class equestrian destination and helped to elevate the standards of Thai equestrians to an international level, it also showcased our world-class event organization and presented a great opportunity for riders to gain more experience, to prove themselves to the world and prepare for the 2020 Olympics.”
