$107-111: Antetokounmpo passes baton to Holiday, Ingles to escape New York

Big win for the Bucks who came back from -17 and beat the Knicks (111-107) at Madison Square Garden. Clutch Holiday, Lopez and Ingles did a great job for Milwaukee against the unstoppable Jalen Bronson.

It was the first in a four-game winning streak, while the former had lost eight in their last 14 matches. The Knicks and Bucks were on different stages… early Tuesday (10/1), but they had a great fight at Madison Square Garden, as the Milwaukee team came back from -17 down to win (111-107) their first of four straight games away from home he will play it.

The Bucks went 26-14 (16-5 at home and 10-9), with Giannis Antikonmo To find this time very strong props in the faces of Clutch Jr. Holiday, Brooke Lopez and Joe Inglis who showed incredibly in execution and creativity. The Stags looked weak in the first half and shot poorly, but from the end of the third period onwards, they always had answers. They finished with 19 three-pointers and 27 assists, with English making the difference and Mike Bodenholzer hoping Khris Middleton will soon be at his disposal. The experienced regional player missed the 12th consecutive game due to problems with his right knee.

The Knicks fell to 22-19 (10-11 home and 12-8 away), with Jaylen Brunson having one of the most spectacular performances of his career (scoring 44 points) and Emanuel Kwikley trailing behind, but Julius Randle breaking them mainly from the perimeter (1 /12 three-pointers) and not allowing his team to get the victory. Tom Thibodeau saw his players commit just seven turnovers, but not much creativity (16 assists) and relied almost exclusively on Bronson’s individual talent as he took nearly a third of his team’s tries.

Antetokounmpo account

He had a quiet first half, on 2/4 shooting (1/2 2 makes, 1/2 3 made, 4/6 field goals), played 16:44 and found no rhythm and no passes. He made several open shots to those around him and did so in the second half, although he was very aggressive in the third. Without exaggeration, without blackmail, he again went to the extra pass and at the end of the night he was the first scorer, even if he was not so great. He doesn’t need that anymore, he just needs victories and he needs real support around him.

With Giannis in the role of facilitator and with Connaughton-Beauchamp scoring from the corner kick, the Bucks kept the game balanced early in the second half.

They even went +17 (70-53) midway through the third period, as Randle did an amazing job with power on defense and offense. And just when all seemed lost for the Bucks, a 10-0 lead helped cut it to six, with 3-pointers from Engels and Beauchamp late in the 12th minute, while Antetokounmpo played it all to stay off the bench early on. the fourth.
