$114-106: Antitokonmo’s Crazy, But Hopelessly Lonely Truck in Cleveland

Giannis Antitekounmo did unimaginable things in Cleveland (45/14), but the Bucks were defeated by the Cavaliers (114-106) because their captain was hopelessly lonely.

the Huge win in New Orleans Creating higher expectations for the dollar, who went first in aggregate NBA In Cleveland to face the Cavaliers III in the early hours of Thursday morning (12/22). Finding themselves down by as many as 24 points, in a frustrating first half with little creativity and the boatload of errors, they put their effort into the second, but didn’t make the turnaround that they lost as a result (114-106) and saw the Cavs close in on them high in the game. eastern arrangement.

Milwaukee fell to 22-9, with Giannis Antikonmo To be cool against a forest of corpses constantly getting in the way, but have no underpinnings beyond a few flashes from Beauchamp, Holiday, and Lopez. It wasn’t a good night for the Bucks even though they stomped on the gas in the second half. They are now 14-3 at home and 8-6 on the road, hoping Khris Middleton will be available over two nights in Brooklyn (2:30 a.m. Saturday) to play against the Nets.

The Cavaliers have rallied to 22-11 (16-2 at home and 6-9), and as a result are looking more and more at the Summit East as the Celtics appear to be in a bad mood. Donovan Mitchell scored in bursts, Darius Garland followed in execution and not so much in creation, Jarrett Allen reported on the game in Milwaukee and JB Bickerstaff saw his eight-man rotation just hit its mark against a machine like Giannis who wanted to. Fight till the end to overthrow.

The Bucks stayed in first place at 22-9, followed by the Celtics at 22-10, the Cavaliers at 22-11 and the Nets at 20-12. Simply put, the competition has begun in the Eastern Conference as well.

Antetokounmpo account

He entered the match aggressively, missing the first three shots he took, but made the next three and outplayed his opponents in incredible fashion. He had half the Bucks’ points in the first half (21 of 42 on 7/10 2 throws and 7/11 shooting), but he needed two goals, which he didn’t find in the first half. He didn’t find it, in fact, in a second either, even though he was a machine that never stopped attacking. A magical performance, against a team he knows, can make it tough for the Bucks in the playoffs. Against a team that respects and appreciates.

The situation became dramatic at the beginning of the second. 43-21 at 15′ began to recall what happened a few days earlier in Memphis, as the Bucks found their first assists of the game after eleven errors and kept the lead at … reasonable levels (43-28). They also dropped it to single digits when their defense became more effective, but without scaring off the Cavaliers. Mitchell hit a 3-pointer for a 60-42 halftime lead, which saw the bench win 16-2 and foul shots 17-2.

The Cavaliers opened the second half with a 6-0 lead in the first minute and that -24 started looking a lot for the Bucks. Budenholzer called for a zone defense midway through the third period, but the home team wasn’t worried. They haven’t forgotten what happened in the game in Milwaukee and they consistently had answers, until 93-77 at the end of the twelve minutes when Holiday wrote with a three-pointer on the exhale, in order to keep the interest alive.

Antetokounmpo and Carter were furious in the fourth quarter to cut the score to 10 (95-85), as Giannis played with incredible tenacity to claim all his chances. It made it 43 for 109-101, before Connaughton hit a 3-pointer to make it -5. And it was the best the Bucks had in Cleveland, as the Cavaliers worked hard to let this game slip away.
