The Milwaukee Bucks (32-18) gave one away tonight against a not very good Golden State Warriors (24-27) team. The final from San Francisco was 122-121.
The Warriors are a bad team and the Bucks should beat this team every time, with or without Giannis.
The defense was brutal down the stretch and ultimately still had a chance to win them the game in the final seconds, but failed to do so.
Milwaukee took a 116-106 lead after Jrue Holiday hit a 3-pointer with exactly 4:00 remaining in the game and then got outscored 16-5 the rest of the way.
Despite the poor execution on both ends of the court in the final minutes, the Bucks had a 121-120 lead in the final seconds and failed to get a defensive rebound to seal the deal and then committed a foul to give the Kelly Oubre Jr. two free throws, which he made, with 7.7 seconds left.
For a team with championship aspirations, this was a pathetic finish to a game against a bad team.
On the bright side, Jrue Holiday was great. Holiday finished with 29 points on 11-of-18 from the field, 4-of-7 from 3-point range and 3-of-3 at the foul line.
The Bucks play on the road in Texas against the Dallas Mavericks (28-21) on Thursday, April 8. Tipoff is set for 8:00 PM (Central Time).
