Kevin Durant couldn’t carry the Nets any further this season.
Though Brooklyn’s superstar scored 48 points, it wasn’t enough as the Nets’ suffered a crushing season-ending 115-111 Game 7 overtime loss to the Bucks on Saturday night at Barclays Center.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had a big night for the Bucks scoring 40 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Khris Middleton scored 23 points, and former Net Brook Lopez poured in 19 for Milwaukee.
James Harden, who still was playing conservatively after his return from a hamstring injury, chipped in 22 points and nine assists in his best game yet since returning to the lineup.
Blake Griffin also had a strong game for the Nets, scoring 17 points and grabbing 11 rebounds before fouling out in OT.
The Bucks will face the winner of Sunday’s Game 7 between the 76ers and the Hawks.
