On a national televised showdown, the Milwaukee Bucks looked to keep the road trip winning vibes going facing the New Orleans Pelicans, losing 131-126. Unfortunately, Bourbon Street is undefeated and Milwaukee struggled with hitting shots early on resulting in shooting 28.6% in the first quarter. It continued to get worse as the game went along and the team couldn’t even be bothered to show effort. By halftime the game was effectively over, but the Bucks did try and make a comeback midway through the third quarter and the beginning of the fourth to at least have it be a respectable looking loss. Giannis tried his best with 38 points.

Here is the box score if you want to torture yourself.

Stat That Stood Out

It’s the only scoring 45 points in the first half for me.

It’s the allowing another team to hit a franchise record of three-pointers again for me.

It was the 7 turnovers in 7 minutes for me.
