Rapid Recap: Bucks 123, Bulls 104

It was a tale of two halves for the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Bucks used a HUGE 46-point 3rd quarter to come back and beat the Chicago Bulls. The Bucks were down 18-points at halftime, but they clearly got the message during the break.

Giannis Antetokounmpo poured in 23 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 blocks in 32 minutes of action. He also did this.

Look at the Fiserv Forum go into complete hysteria after that slam.

Point guard Eric Bledsoe was money all night. He finished with 25 points, 4 rebounds, and 6 assists in 10 minutes while shooting 10-of-13 from the floor. Defensively, he was just as locked in.

Khris Middleton added 23 points of his own while stuffing the stat sheet with 10 rebounds and 8 assists. He’s good at basketball.

Brook “Splash Mountain” Lopez continued his torrential downpour from behind the arc. Lopez scored 14 points while hitting 4-of-8 threes.

Also, THON MAKER!!!!!!!

In his return to Milwaukee, Jabari Parker got off to a sizzling start but was stymied after the half. He finished 21 points on 9-of-19 shooting, but it was great to see him healthy out there. Justin Holiday torched Milwaukee early and finished with 20 points and 6 made threes. For some reason, he loves to play against the Bucks.

The crowd at the Fiserv Forum looked amazing tonight. Watching from my TV in Los Angeles, just the crowd alone made it feel like I was there.

Stat That Stood Out

Seriously, that third quarter (46-17) was nuts.
