The Brooklyn Nets closed out the Boston Celtics 123-109 in Game 5, winning the series 4-1.
James Harden led the scoring with 34 points, while Kyrie Irving added 25 points and Kevin Durant scoring 24 points.
“We just don’t want to take any of this time for granted,” said Irving after the game. “This doesn’t happen too often kind of in our culture, in our history, where three of the best scorers to ever play the game are on one team.”
The Nets host the Bucks starting on Saturday. The Nets are in the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
Durant looked forward to the challenge of defending Giannis Antetokounmpo.
“We've got our work cut out for us. I mean, he’s a two-time MVP, Defensive Player of the Year for a reason, so we’re looking forward to the challenge," said Durant.
