The Milwaukee Bucks seemed to have it in the bag. The three-game losing streak was about to end. Until it didn’t.
The Bucks were leading the Chicago Bulls 104-93 with 3:18 left in the fourth quarter. But a 13-2 run by the Bulls tied the game at 106 and sent it to overtime. At that point, Chicago had all of the momentum and outscored Milwaukee 13-7 in the overtime period to steal the 119-113 win. It was the fourth straight loss for Milwaukee.
Despite the loss, Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the Bulls like usual. He scored 45 points, grabbed 22 rebounds, and added seven assists.
What doomed the Bucks? The three-point shooting. Milwaukee was 9-44 from three-point range.
After a long road trip, the Bucks return home to face the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7:00pm on Friday night.
