Bucks look for better matinee performance Saturday

After getting pasted in a matinee game earlier this week, the Milwaukee Bucks have a chance for a mulligan Saturday. Game 3 is an earlier start, noon central time, and with the series locked at one game apiece, it is an important one. Milwaukee clamped down on the defensive end in Game 2, allowing only 96 points. They were especially ferocious in the first half, yielding just 41 points through 24 minutes.


Not every question is answered for Milwaukee, which has been a very pedestrian 4-6 since the restart. Outside of Antetokounmpo, there has been very little help from the supporting cast. In Game 2, center Brook Lopez chipped in 20, but no other starter had more than 13. Orlando is beset by injuries, but that hasn’t stopped Nikola Vucevic. The Orlando center has led all players in scoring both games. Milwaukee will need to limit his production going forward.
