Milwaukee Bucks games this week.
Sunday @ Charlotte
Playing without Khris Middleton for the second straight game (Neck soreness) the Milwaukee Bucks saw their consecutive game streak of scoring 100 points come to an end at 83 games in a 93-85 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Giannis Antetokounmpo put together his first ever 40 point 20 rebound game in the win.
Monday @ Miami
Getting Khris Middleton back into the lineup after missing two games proved not enough to get a victory Monday against the Heat in Miami. Giannis Antetokounmpo was held to only 13 points, tying his season low, while the Bucks as a whole scored only 89 points, the team’s season low. Miami shot a scalding 18-37 on three point attempts in the loss for the Bucks.
Wednesday vs. Indiana
The Bucks got back to their winning ways Wednesday in Milwaukee, defeating the Pacers 119-100. The Bucks started off hot in the first quarter going up by 22 early, fumbled the lead as the Pacers made it a two point game at halftime. Giannis Antetokounmpo helped the Bucks squash the comeback attempt by putting up 29 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. Donte DiVincenzo tied his career high 19 points in the win.
Friday @ LA Lakers
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 32 points, 11 rebounds and six assists weren’t enough to overcome 19 Bucks turnovers in a 113-103 loss to the Lakers in LA Friday night. The loss was highlighted by an 18-0 run by the Lakers in the 3rd quarter. Lebron James and Anthony Davis combined for 67 points. The Bucks struggled to find much scoring behind Giannis and 17 from Donte DiVincenzo.
The Bucks went 2-2 in their four games this week, their lead for the top spot in the Eastern Conference stands at 8.5 games. The Bucks shot a combined 39-146 on 3s in their four games this week, highlighting their two lowest scoring games of the season back to back on Sunday and Monday. The team is in action four times this week, Sunday @ Phoenix, Monday @ Denver, back home Thursday vs. Boston and Saturday vs. Golden State. The Bucks record currently stands at 53-10.
