Will Brooklyn cover the spread against Milwaukee in Game 2?

TNT will host Saturday’s second round NBA playoff matchup between the Milwaukee Buck and Brooklyn Nets with tip set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Game 2 of the series will take place at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Bucks appeared to benefit from James Harden’s untimely hamstring tweak in Game 1 on Saturday, but couldn't take advantage of the Nets star’s early exit and lost 115-107 at Barclay’s center. Giannis Antetokounmpo had no problem producing at a high level in the first matchup of the second-round series and scored 34 points on 66% shooting, but his attempts at the rim were limited thanks to impressive team defense and effort from Brooklyn. Milwaukee will need quality contributions from Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton to even the series. Both struggled from the field on Saturday.

The Nets thrived on offense without their top playmaker and Blake Griffin filled in for Harden as a member of Brooklyn’s big three by notching 18 points and 14 rebounds. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving produced their normal offensive output, while Mike James stepped up to lead all bench players with 12 points. Harden and Jeff Green have been ruled out for Game 2, so role-players will be vital to Brooklyn’s effort to maintain a lead.
