Poor 4th Quarter Dooms Bucks

Adjust Comment Print

In today's edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we hear about Tony Snell's journey to the National Basketball Association, the Bucks' recent three-point shooting woes, the quest to help make Giannis Antetokounmpo the leading vote getter for this year's All-Star game and much more.

The Bucks have alternated wins and losses for the past seven games.

With Curry still sidelined by a right ankle injury, the Warriors clamped down on defense and did most of their damage on the other end in the lane. "We just had to figure it out".

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting from the field to lead the Bucks. Eric Bledsoe added 21 points. He didn't play the final 4:41 of the third quarter after picking up his fourth foul. The move is seen as a precautionary one as Golden State has back-to-back games concluding Saturday at Toronto. With Curry out, the Warriors instead focused on driving to the hoop and gave the Bucks fits at time with cutters. After the game was over, David West revealed what the fan said to Thompson: "F- you, b--". He participated in a full practice in Milwaukee on Thursday but was listed as questionable.

Curry has missed the past two games. He scored 15 with five rebounds and four assists. They're allowing foes to shoot 38 percent from 3-point range on the year.

Curry has been dominant since returning from the injury on December 30, averaging 35.2 points and hitting 33 3-pointers (53.2 percent). F Khris Middleton was just 2 of 12 from the field for eight points.

Brogdon drew the assignment of guarding Thompson for much of the evening.

So how did Thompson take the news?

Barring a pregame setback, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is expected to return from a sprained right ankle Saturday night against the Raptors.
