The Bucks went on to add another 3-pointer, and 12 Milwaukee players contributed to the onslaught from distance as Milwaukee finished with a 47-point lead. All the Bucks played, and Giannis Antetokounmpo was the only player who didn’t make a 3-pointer. Antetokounmpo missed his two attempts from 3 but finished with nine points, six rebounds and six assists in 25 minutes.
