The Milwaukee Bucks (8-8) did not make things easy on themselves after leading by 20-points, but they held on to survive a scare from the Oklahoma City Thunder (6-9) with a 96-89 victory inside the Fiserv Forum.
The Bucks played a great first half and led 58-47 at intermission. Milwaukee had a good start to the second half as they built a 74-54 lead with 4:55 left in the third quarter. But then they played with no energy and intensity and OKC cut it to two-points on several different occasions.
At the end of the day, the Bucks got the win and that’s all that matters.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was great again and led Milwaukee with 21 points and 19 rebounds and finished with 7 assists.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Semi Ojeleye is not good and I was not a fan of the Bucks signing him. He was 0-for-4 from the field, 0-for-3 from 3-point range and had a plus/minus of minus-16 in 17 minutes played!
What is Mike Budenholzer even doing playing him at this point?
I like winning. Winning is fun. Pretty or ugly. Fear The Deer!
The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Orlando Magic (4-12) at the Fiserv Forum tomorrow night, November 20th. Tipoff is set for 7:00 PM (Central Time).
