The Milwaukee Bucks beat the New York Knicks 128-102 at the Fiserv Forum on Tuesday night. It was a jam-packed night in Milwaukee as President Trump was holding a rally two doors down. The Bucks got out to an early lead in the first quarter and never looked back.
Even though the Bucks held a 25 point lead at halftime, Giannis Antetokounmpo kept his team focused to put the finishing touches on the lowly Knicks team. He led the way with 37 points in only 22 minutes. Just about as efficient as one can get on the night. Khris Middleton chipped in 17 of his own in similar minutes.
Giannis made it clear after the game that it’s important for them to keep playing their game in blowouts. “I’m just trying to be aggressive and make plays,” Antetokounmpo said. “When you come out with the mindset to make the lead go to 20 or 30 or 40, that’s when you mess up the lead.”
The Bucks now move to 36-6 on the season with a comfy seven-game cushion on the rest of the conference. The Boston Celtics will come to town on Thursday for a matchup. That contest will tip-off at seven from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
