The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 128-122 Thursday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with a monster night. He had 45 points to go along with 13 rebounds. It was another vintage MVP performance this season.
Eric Bledsoe got ejected from the game right away after Joel Embiid threw a ball at him and he retaliated. He rifled the ball back at him and got thrown out of the game early on. That would provide a spark for the Bucks all night in a heated matchup.
Milwaukee would hold on and close out the fourth quarter to clinch home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. They are now one win away from hitting 60 wins on the season. All led behind the best player in the league, Giannis.
The Bucks will now have a day off before they go for their 60th win against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. Tip-off will be at 4:00. Door County Daily News will be down for the coverage.
