The Milwaukee Bucks won their 15th straight game on Tuesday by defeating the Brooklyn Nets by a score of 118 to 104 thanks to a good performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo.
As a result, the Eastern Conference’s leader finished the month of February undefeated. Furthermore, the team has the best record in the NBA, with 44 wins in 61 games.
Antetokounmpo was the highlight of the Bucks victory over the Nets. That’s because he scored 33 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in 28 minutes.
However, he ended up as the scorer of the match. Off the bench, Khris Middleton also did well with 18 points and six assists. Brook Lopez, meanwhile, had a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The performances therefore contributed to Milwaukee’s upset. The visiting team, after all, started the play badly.
In the first quarter, the Nets dominated the actions and opened 12 points of advantage. The difference, incidentally, was managed until the break, when Brooklyn led by ten points.
Part of the Nets’ good play came from the hands of Mikal Bridges. Main name of the home team, the winger scored 31 points, in addition to five assists.
The perimeter duo from New York, by the way, stood out. Spencer Dinwiddie, then, also had a good game with 26 points and eight assists.
However, the second half was up to the Bucks. Mike Budenholzer’s team came back hot from the break and cashed out the first quarter loss.
However, in addition to taking the ten points down, he turned and imposed six at the top of the scoreboard. That’s just in the third period.
So the final quarter remained in Milwaukee’s control. Packed by the excellent recent record, it imposed itself and extended the advantage.
As a result, the Nets were unable to react in the final 12 minutes and saw victory slip through their fingers.
