That was quite fun!

NBA: Miami Heat at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It seemed pretty clear that the Bucks had payback on their minds Tuesday night, as the Bucks dismantled the visiting Miami Heat 124-86.

It was quite the fun first half for this one, with the Bucks putting the pedal to the metal. A widespread source of scoring sketched out a 69-45 halftime lead, with Brook Lopez and Eric Bledsoe each tallying 11 points.

From there, it’d be open sailing for the home team. They’d never look back. This was quite the entertaining and revenge-filled game. Miami never really stood a chance.

Stat That Stood Out

Splash Mountain is back, baby. If a brief series of games that saw him go on a drought from beyond the arc, Brook Lopez made his presence felt, connecting on 3-of-6 from the perimeter. He hit a couple of them early on and when he did, it seemed to put the rest of the squad in a certain mood. It really captivated the rest of the cast and epitomized that when Splash Mountain is on, the rest of the Bucks are on.
