The Milwaukee Bucks have some of the best fans in the entire NBA. However, on Monday night against the Utah Jazz, even the ever-faithful Milwaukee supporters could not hide their disgust at what they saw from their team.
As they watched the Bucks get blown out by as much as 33 points in the first half, Bucks fans just had to air out some of the bottled-up frustration that had been building up amid the team’s current slump. This resulted in the home crowd at the Fiserv booing their own team amid the brutal blowout.
Khris Middleton Reacts to Milwaukee Bucks Fans Booing Team
Giannis Antetokounmpo addressed the issue after Monday’s 132-116 loss to Utah. The Bucks talisman said that he heard the boos, and instead of calling out the fans, Giannis admitted that he would have booed himself, too.
Khris Middleton was also asked to comment on the ugly turn of events at the Fiserv Forum on Monday night, to which the three-time All-Star was left at a loss for words:
“I heard it,” Middleton said, via Eric Nehm of The Athletic. “It’s tough. I don’t have much to say about that. I mean, it happens sometimes, but hopefully it won’t happen again.”
There really isn’t much you can say after being booed by your own fans — especially since the players know that they deserved it.
The Bucks return to action at the Fiserv Forum on Thursday night to host the league-best Boston Celtics, and you can be sure that the fans will be on edge for that one.
