Milwaukee cruises to its 12th straight victory

NBA: New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

In an absolute dismantling, the Bucks tore apart the Knicks tonight at Fiserv Forum, 132-88, earning another wire-to-wire victory.

Just as we all expected, Milwaukee didn’t waste any time getting this one started. Khris Middleton would receive his first start since returning from injury, and he’d make his presence felt early on with 10 points. Giannis would chip in with eight of his own, and seven other Bucks would find the score sheet. After one, the Bucks leapt out to a 33-15 advantage.

Milwaukee’s lead would only grow in the second quarter. Like, it’d REALLY grow. At halftime, it’d be a 27 point deficit. In fact, I’m wrapping up the game summary now:

Stat That Stood Out

In his first game back in the starting lineup, Khris Middleton looked back in his natural habitat. He’d play 18 minutes, racking up 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting. He’s really found his way back on the court quite nicely, looking like the same ol’ Khris in all games leading up to his start tonight. His highlight of the night? How about his two-handed dunk after he stripped the ball away on a breakaway, leading to a party ensuing on the bench?

This team is so much fun.
