The Milwaukee Bucks earned their highest score of the season with a 146-122 win over the New York Knicks to advance to the semifinals of the NBA’s season tournament on Thursday in Las Vegas, where they will face the Indiana Pacers.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, who led the Bucks with 35 points and 10 assists, shared his excitement about the progress on social media:
Giannis said: “LONG LIVE LAS VEGAS”
The Bucks got pretty much everything they wanted on the offensive end and showed how dangerous they can be when shooting at all levels. This version of the Bucks is what many analysts believed fans would see consistently. With Antetokounmpo applying tremendous pressure in the paint, the Knicks defense collapsed time and time again, leading to 23 made 3-pointers for Milwaukee on a blistering 60.5% shooting.
