It has happened to the Milwaukee Bucks in recent memory, but the Giannis Antetokounmpo led new-age Bucks did the devastating last night. A 104-77 thrashing of the Toronto Raptors sent a shock wave around the NBA Thursday. The Bucks are for real!
They played well offensively. It was the defensive effort that is what stood out however. The Bucks led 32-12 after the first quarter, 57-30 at half and held a remarkable 32 point lead after three quarters 78-46.
Antetokounmpo scored 19 points in the win. Khris Middleton added 20 points to take the series lead two games to one. Game four at the BMO Harris Bradley Center will be Saturday at 2:00 PM.
