The Bucks matched up with central division rival Indiana Pacers tonight and things didn’t go as planned. Milwaukee came into the game seeded 2nd in the East and looking to work gain ground on the Raptors but that didn’t happen.
With the exception of Eric Bledsoe’s 26 points the Milwaukee Bucks were completely shut down! Giannis was held to 12 points and the even more puzzling part is he only got 7 shots up. Middleton continued to struggle and was 4-18 from the field, Brogdon was 4-11 and Lopez was 5-16. There’s just no way your can win a game when your starters are that bad offensively.
George Hill got 22 mins of action in his return to his home state, the place he played High School, College and Pro Ball a couple years ago for the Pacers. He only managed to put up 4 points and 1 assist in that time.
The Bucks head to Cleveland on Friday to face the Cavs. The game time is 6:30 and can be seen on FS1.
