The Milwaukee Bucks (22-13) stole a Christmas Day victory from the Boston Celtics (16-17), 117-113, this afternoon from inside the Fiserv Forum.
The Bucks were horrible in the first half. No effort, no hustle, couldn’t hit many shots and played terrible defense. It was highway robbery that the Bucks won this game.
Milwaukee scored 43 points in the third quarter to make it a 94-90 ballgame heading into the final 12 minutes. But an 8-0 run by Boston to open up the fourth quarter made it a double-digit deficit once again and it seemed like the Bucks wasted away the third quarter performance.
But in the final five minutes, the Bucks used some of their third quarter magic to bring it home. It was a Christmas miracle.
Giannis Antetokounmpo needed a half to get his wind and legs back after covid and then finished 36 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and two blocks. There’s nobody in the league that can push themselves to the level this guy does. Time and time again he’s proven it. Just another magnificent performance by the Greek Freak.
Heck of a win by the Bucks.
The Bucks will play a two-game road series against the Orlando Magic (7-26). The first game will be on Tuesday, December 28th with tipoff being set for 6:00 PM (Central Time).
