Indiana Pacers v Milwaukee Bucks

In an absolutely impressive manner, the Milwaukee Bucks clobbered the Indiana Pacers, 130-120.

NBA.com Box Score

Propelled by a continuation of their hot shooting vs. Portland and strong rebounding, Milwaukee built up a 29-21 advantage at the end of the first quarter. Things would really begin to roll in the second, as the three pointers continued to rain down for the hometown squad. Indiana simply didn’t have many answers, and the Bucks really capitalized on it. They’d roll into halftime carrying a 68-51 advantage.

The Bucks would keep connecting on threes. Midway through the third, they’d create a 27 point lead — their largest of the night at that point. At the end of the third, they’d be up 106-72, and that’d really be where the ship finally sailed. Milwaukee would end up cruising to a 130-110 victory over their divisional foe.

Stat That Stood Out

For the second consecutive game, Milwaukee relied on their 3-point shooting to put away their opponent. They’d do so by knocking down 21 threes in an unrelenting manner. Right from the get go, Indiana had no answers. It just shows how strong this Bucks squad is with its weaponry they boast around Giannis. Just absolutely lethal, and for the second consecutive game, their opponent failed to produce any answer of sorts. Just a magnificent clinic exhibited beyond the arc by Milwaukee. Oh yeah, and Giannis got a triple-double in 25 minutes.
