The Bucks rolled into Los Angeles 1-1 on the 5 game road trip. Milwaukee comes in riding high and fresh off the beating the put on the defending champion Golden State Warriors. A game like this vs the Clippers could easily be a game you come in flat and not motivated if your not disciplined. This is what is know as a “Trap game.”
As feared the Bucks cake our flat and let the Clippers get up 15 points in the first half and put themselves in a hole. Luckily they regained focus and stormed to a 64-62 lead going into halftime.
As the 3rd quarter began an all out, bucket for bucket, back and forth battle was underway. By the 4th quarter the energy of Montrezl Harrell was becoming to much. His scrappy play along with the scrappy play of veteran Patrick Beverly became to much. Every time the Bucks made a run the Clippers answered to keep the lead. It took a desperation three point shot that bounced up, rolled around and went in with 6 seconds left to force overtime.
In overtime the back and forth continued but this time the Bucks came up short as time expired. Milwaukee is now 9-3 on the season and heading to Denver to face the red hot Nuggets!
