The Milwaukee Bucks (3-0) were dominant in the second half tonight in a 110-99 win over the Brooklyn Nets (1-3) inside the Fiserv Forum to remain undefeated in the early season.
The Bucks trailed by 12 at halftime and did not look very good in that first half. But Milwaukee just dominated Brooklyn in the final 24 minutes.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was spectacular. He finished with 43 points (34 in the second half), 14 rebounds, five assists and three blocks.
The Greek Freak now has 87 points over his last two games, which is the most in a two-game span in his career.
Bobby Portis delivered on making some emphatic plays tonight, the kind of stuff that makes Fiserv go crazy. You gotta love Bobby Portis, all he does is grind.
The game was really a blast. Like I mentioned earlier, the first half was a disgusting, despicable performance of basketball. But the second half was poetry. I love basketball. I love the Milwaukee Bucks. I’m ready to bring the Larry O’Brien trophy back home.
The Bucks finding ways to get wins with no Pat Connaughton or Khris Middleton is huge, no matter how ugly they are.
The Bucks will welcome the New York Knicks (3-1) to the Fiserv Forum on Friday, October 28th. Tipoff is schedule for 7:00 p.m. (Central Time).
