Rapid Recap: Bucks 133, Thunder 86

Wow. Pure destruction.

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Milwaukee Bucks Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Wowzers. Talk about a lopsided victory.

It’d be a pretty even start to begin this one, but it was only a matter of time before Giannis Antetokounmpo would make his presence felt. A run led by himself pushed Milwaukee’s lead to double-digits, and provided a lead they’d hold a majority of the quarter. The Greek Freak’s nine points (and Robin Lopez’s seven off the bench) would lead the way for Milwaukee early on, and the Bucks held onto a 31-24 advantage after one.

Oklahoma City would continue to nip the Bucks’ ankles throughout the second quarter, never allowing Milwaukee to mount a massive lead — that’d be until I literally typed that sentence. Using a pair of Wesley Matthews 3-pointers as momentum (and I mean MOMENTUM), the Bucks would snowball out to a 71-47 halftime lead.

And that’d be all she wrote. Milwaukee continued their obliteration throughout the second half. Like, I mean it was if the Thunder were a bunch of ghosts out there. I don’t even know how to sum it up other than the fact that it was utter destruction. When the dust finally settled, the Bucks came out victorious, 133-86.

Stat That Stood Out

We’re taking an untraditional route here, tonight. If you’ve follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that every time there’s a Potawatomi Jackpot Shot, I’m recording. Tonight, that paid off:

Scroll through some of those tweets on that thread. We’ve had some horrible attempts along the way. It was a long road, but we’ve finally made it. 30 games in and we finally have our winner. Well done, sir.

(As for an actual basketball stat, we’ll go with Giannis Antetokounmpo’s +44 RPM)
