Kevin Durant’s Game 5 performance was one of the best playoff performances you’re ever going to see. He finished with 49 points, 17 boards and 10 assists on just 23 field goal attempts. He played every second of the game. He had 30 points in the final 18 minutes, and he assisted four of the eight Brooklyn field goals that stretch that he did not score himself. He led Brooklyn to a win despite the fact that James Harden was playing as if he had shown up at the arena after hitting Happy Hour.
It took the best game that Kevin Durant has ever played — and a miracle resurgence from Jeff Green — for the Nets to win at home by a possession in a series where home teams have dominated.
That’s not exactly a promising sign for the Nets.
In fact, I’d go as far as to say that Brooklyn has taken control of this series because Milwaukee has given it away as much as the Nets have earned it. At some point, you have to figure that all the shots the Bucks are missing now, the shots that they were hitting all season long, will eventually start dropping again. I mean, we spent this entire NBA season laughing about how bad the Nets are defensively, and suddenly they’re holding the Bucks to 98.8 points per game?
The answer for every game in this series has been the home team. I don’t expect that to change, not when James Harden and Kyrie Irving are just as injured today as they were on Tuesday. And if that means I lose a bet when Kevin Durant puts together another perfect game, then so be it.
