A Game 7 thriller, the NBA’s first do-or-die game to go to overtime in 15 years, came down to the final shot.

Luckily for Milwaukee, Kevin Durant’s shot came up short as the third-seeded Bucks held on for a thrilling 115-111 road victory over the second-seeded Nets.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 40 points and 13 rebounds in the win. Antetokounmpo recorded his fifth straight game with 30 points and 10 rebounds, tying Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s franchise playoff record that he set in 1974. Khris Middleton also added a double-double with 23 points and 10 rebounds, including the go-ahead basket in overtime.

Kevin Durant scored 48 points, setting an NBA Game 7 scoring record in the loss. The two-time NBA Finals MVP shot 17-of-36 from the field and also grabbed nine boards and has six assists. Durant played all 53 minutes and broke the previous Game 7 scoring records set by Dominique Wilkins and Sam Jones.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Durant joined Jerry West and Oscar Robertson as the only players in league history to score at least 40 points in a Game 7 while playing every minute.

James Harden had 22 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, but was just 5-for-17 from the field. Harden missed the first four games in the series due a hamstring injury.

“I was just going out there and trying to give everything I can and it’s just frustrating,” Harden said.

With the win, Milwaukee has now reached the East finals for the second time in three years.
