Bucks Lead

Bucks Plow Past Defending Champs


Bucks Blow Out Warriors 134-111

After Tuesday’s 15-point loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, the Bucks stepped into Oracle Arena hoping to make a statement– a statement that was made loud and clear. They dominated the Warriors in every quarter, especially the 3rd, where they outscored them 41-28. Golden State did not have any answers for basically anything. Eric Bledsoe led tonight’s charge with 26 points and six assists.

This performance against the Warriors is not a first, it seems that anytime the Bucks play this stacked team, they bring their all. The last time the Warriors lost at home was last March and by who? You guessed it, the Bucks. Steph Curry, who left the game in the 3rd quarter with an adductor injury, stated earlier in the week that this Bucks team reminds him where the Warriors were just a few years ago. With a new coach and one of the hottest stars on the court, let’s hope the future is right along to where the Warriors are now.

Giannis Gets Well Deserved Rest

With domination taking place on the court, Giannis rested the entire 4th quarter after picking up his 5th foul late in the third. He ended the night with 24 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks. It’s good to know that when the Greek Freak has to be sidelined, others can step up. That list includes Malcolm Brogdon with 20 points, Khris Middleton with 17, and Pat Connaughton with 15 points off the pine. The damage was especially done in the paint, where the Bucks scored 84 to the Warriors’ 34. Around the rim, the Bucks can control the game.


Up next, the Bucks travel to Los Angeles Saturday afternoon to take on the 6-5 Clippers. This road trip is a big test for Milwaukee and although they had their issues in Portland, the Bucks bounced back and showed that they can learn from their mistakes. This team should use this performance as a confidence booster for their remaining two games on the trip. To improve is a must, but the victories should be celebrated. As Reggie Miller said during the game, “Milwaukee is the real deal” and no statement about this team has never been more true.
