Milwaukee Bucks swingman Pat Connaughton scored just three points on Wednesday night in their 144-122 blowout win against the Brooklyn Nets. It wasn’t just your typical three points, though, as the 30-year-old achieved an epic career milestone in what turned out to be a historic evening for the 6-foot-5 guard/forward.
