Brooklyn coach Steve Nash wasn’t around to watch Giannis Antetokounmpo finish picking the Nets apart.
Nash was ejected for the first time in his coaching career after arguing that Antetokounmpo should have been called for an offensive foul against Patty Mills while bringing the ball up the court in the third quarter.
Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks dominated the rest of the way in a 110-99 victory Wednesday night.
Antetokounmpo had 43 points, 14 rebounds, and five assists. He scored 34 points in the second half.
Bobby Portis had 20 points and 11 rebounds for Milwaukee and Jrue Holiday added 15 points.
Kevin Durant scored 33, Kyrie Irving 27, and Royce O’Neale 12 for the Nets. Irving scored 11 straight Brooklyn points.
