Milwaukee Bucks beat Brooklyn Nets


Milwaukee beat Brooklyn for the second time in three days to confirm their playoff spot and close in on the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Bucks, whose main focus has been at the top of the standings, did it on their own court, following up Sunday’s victory over the James-Harden-less Nets with a 124-118 success that gave them a third successive win and keeps three teams in the hunt for the top seed in the East.
