In an absolutely packed Fiserv Forum, the Golden State Warriors came in and evened up the season series against the Milwaukee Bucks, 105-95.
Plain and simple, the reason the Warriors earned this victory was due to better shooting. The Bucks were cold from the start and never got in a constant groove, while a second half surge kept Golden State’s lead safe and sound.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was the head honcho yet again for the Bucks, finishing his night up with 22 points and 15 rebounds. The rest of the starters would find double digits in the scoring column as well.
For Golden State, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry led the way with his 20 points. Andre Iguodala had 15 of his own and the Splash Brothers of Jonas Jerebko/Alfonso McKinnie poured in a combined 21 points.
Stat That Stood Out
For a team as good as Golden State, it was odd to see them so reckless with the basketball. It’d be a large part of what kept the Bucks so close in the game. In the end, the Warriors would tally 18 turnovers, with Milwaukee earning 24 points off of them. I’d say it was due in large part to the atmosphere and climate of the game itself. There never seemed to be slow movement on the floor and everybody was constantly going 110 MPH. It’s always fun to see two teams playing at that high of a level, and it’s even more fun when the Bucks get turnovers because of it. Unfortunately, of those 18 turnovers, only five came in the second half — which was a large part in the Warriors heading home as victors.
