Bucks lose final bubble tune-up against Grizzlies

Limited minutes against a team with everything to lose led to the Milwaukee Bucks' loss to the Memphis Grizzlies 119-106 Thursday afternoon.


Giannis Antetokounmpo served his one-game suspension while none of the team's major contributors played more than 20 minutes in the contest that was "win and get in" for the Grizzlies. Led by Dillon Brooks' 31 points, the Grizzlies outscored the Bucks in every quarter but the final one. The Grizzlies also had two players post triple-doubles in the game in Jonas Valanciunas (26 points, 19 rebounds, and 12 assists) and Ja Morant (12 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists). Brook Lopez led all Bucks scorers with 19 points with four other teammates reaching double figures.


The Bucks will now wait until Tuesday until their opening playoff matchup against the Orlando Magic. That game will start at 12:30 p.m.
