Monster game from Giannis not enough in game two

The Milwaukee Bucks gave up an explosive second quarter to the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night which proved to be the difference in their game two loss. After being defeated 118-108, the Bucks trail 2-0 in the series. Milwaukee will hope for the same fortunes as their Eastern Conference semi-final, when they rallied from being down two games to beat the Brooklyn Nets. 


Milwaukee held a 29-26 lead after the first quarter, but then trailed 56-45 at halftime. Milwaukee would cut the lead to as low as 5 or 6 at times in the second half, but couldn’t come any closer. 


Though not enough to lead the Bucks to victory, Giannis Antetokounmpo had a big night with 42 points and 12 rebounds. Jrue Holiday had 17 points and Pat Connaughton pitched in 14. 


The Suns backcourt continues to be a problem for Milwaukee as Devin Booker had 31 points and seven 3-pointers. Mikal Bridges scored 27 and Chris Paul had 23. 


The Bucks will look forward to getting the series back to Milwaukee, as game three begins in the Fiserv Forum on Sunday night at 7:00 PM.
