Brooklyn Nets saw Kyrie Irving going down with a right ankle sprain during Game 4 of the semifinal series vs. the Milwaukee Bucks.
With Harden and Irving down, Milwaukee took advantage of Brooklyn’s lack of star power to tie the series (2-2) on Sunday.
After Irving’s injury, TV analyst Skip Bayless took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the Eastern Conference postseason battle.
Bayless claimed the Bucks and the Sixers are now the favorites to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bucks will have to win in Brooklyn at least one time to make it to the ECF.
On the other side, the 76ers are up 2-1 in the semifinal series vs. the Hawks. If they remain healthy, Philadelphia seems to be the favorite to win the series after three games.
