Bucks Fall to the Nuggets 128-97

Nikola Jokic and Jamal snapped the Milwaukee Bucks five-game winning streak. Jokic had his 50th career triple double. He had 37 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in the game. After the game coach Malone said. “The guy doesn’t get fatigued. He doesn’t get tired. When he was out of the game, he was in the huddles, he’s on the bench imploring his teammates to rebound and play defense and move the ball. When your best player is doing that, that really sends a message.” Jamal Murray also put up 24 points in the game.

Denver coming off a back to back really took it to Milwaukee. Denver shot 55.8% from the field and Milwaukee couldn’t make a shot. Denver got revenge on the Bucks since they took them down in Denver previously in the year. It is tough to beat the Nuggets twice in a year.

Giannis had 27 points, and eight rebounds for the Bucks. Middleton also put up 20 points in the loss. The offense struggled all game and that is something the Bucks aren’t used to. Besides Giannis and Khris the Bucks were just not there physcially or mentally. Every team has these games and it will only benefit them in the long run. This game was over after the tip. The Nuggets took control of the game and never looked back. The Bucks finish an eight game homestand at a 5-3 record.

Key Takeaways

Jrue Holiday is back from having Covid. This was his second game back and he is coming off the bench. He has been a little rusty and has been playing limited minutes. Getting Jrue back is a big boost for this team.
