The 2021-22 slate tipped off with the reigning NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks hosting this year’s title favorite Brooklyn Nets. In a rematch of a legendary seven-game series in last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinals, Kevin Durant and James Harden looked to get revenge against Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday.
A huge night in Milwaukee ends with a 127-104 win. The defending champs collect their rings, unveil the championship banner and take down their biggest rival in the conference. A successful night indeed.
