The Bucks cruised to another NBA win (13th in a row) with a 128-99 win over the Heat in Milwaukee, but lost Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Greek superstar started the game against Miami, but a minute before the end of the first period he felt discomfort in his right knee. He motioned to his team’s bench for a timeout and headed straight for the locker room.
In just 6:28 that he had time to play, the “Greek Freak” scored 4 points (2/4 2-pointers), collected 4 rebounds and handed out 4 assists, while in the previous hours he was extremely doubtful to enter the floor of the Fiserv Forum due to the injury on the right hand from the game against the Bulls.
Nevertheless, the Stags stood their ground and managed to get another important victory, chasing the Celtics who are at the top of the East.
The leading scorer for the Bucks was Jrue Holliday with 24 points (5 rebounds and 7 assists), with Bobby Porich having a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Thanasis Antetokounmpo entered the last minutes of the match (2 points and 1 rebound).
Jimmy Butler stood out for the Heat with 23 points, while Bam Adebayo finished the game with 18 points and 7 rebounds.
