Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks, break franchise record with first-half start
The Milwaukee Bucks just exploded in the first half of their game versus the Orlando Magic. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have the largest halftime lead in franchise history. The Bucks are currently up against the Orlando Magic 77-36.
It was a total team effort to reach this mark. The Bucks have points from every player who has been on the court for them so far. Pat Connaughton leads the way with 14, Jrue Holiday has 13, Khris Middleton has 12, and Giannis Antetokounmpo has 11.
Milwaukee has to feel good about the way that they have played when Giannis, Middleton, and Holiday are on the court together. When the Bucks big three have all played together this season, they are 4-0 and look like they are going to make it 5-0 after the contest against the Magic.
The Bucks are going to once again be title contenders after winning an NBA Championship last season. They have had some early-season struggles but it has only been because of injuries. Milwaukee has still not played with Donte DiVincenzo, and Brook Lopez has only played one game. In the one game Brook played, the Bucks beat the Brooklyn Nets by more than 20 points.
It’s an exciting time in Milwaukee. Giannis is playing some of the best basketball in his career and they are finally starting to get healthy.
