For the sixth time in a row, the Milwaukee Bucks have won a basketball game.
After one, the Bucks found themselves by seven points, 33-26. Donte DiVincenzo would lead in the scoring column after the opening period with six points, while DeMar DeRozan paced San Antonio with eight.
The Spurs’ lead would balloon to double-digits early on in the second, but a massive 15-0 run by the Bucks would propel them back in front. A Jrue Holiday three would close out the half, padding the Milwaukee lead to 57-50.
San Antonio would warm up from three in the third, allowing them to stick around with the Bucks. However, the Bucks would continue to cling to the lead, 88-84.
The Spurs would continue to stick around throughout the fourth, but Milwaukee kept getting buckets, eliminating any chance for San Antonio to make a worrisome comeback. The Bucks would put the final touches on a 120-113 victory.
Stat That Stood Out
I’m going to go with Donte DiVincenzo. After a 20 point performance on Wednesday night that helped the Bucks fortify their victory against Philadelphia, he put forth another respectable performance tonight. He’d conclude his outing with 12 points, 11 rebounds, and three assists. That’s the fourth time this season that he’s recorded ten rebounds. Now, he may not be able to finish a layup in a normal fashion, but he has been proving to be big for the Bucks lately, and it’s helped them win basketball games.
