The story of the second half.
“Splash Brothers” of ’65, but Jokic drags Denver: series at 3-1
The Bucks start very strong even outside the locker room with a partial 7-0 which sinks Chicago to -22. The Bulls, however, do not give up and halve the deficit mainly thanks to super impact by Ayo Dosunmo from the bench: his two consecutive three-pointers return the hosts to -11. The break charges the Bulls with intensity, and DeRozan also gets down to work, lengthening the partial until 17-3. The answer comes from Giannis Antetokounmpo: with baskets, with assists (for another 3-pointer by Allen), with blocks: Milwaukee regains control of the race and returns to +15. The Greek stretches his hands on the game, Chicago tries to resist with the heart of Javonte Green but the Bucks seem to be able to handle the advantage. The third quarter ends with the reigning NBA champions above 16 (90-74) thanks to the sixth triple to target of Allenthat reaches height 25 points, best scorer of the game as Antetokounmpo. The final quarter does little to add new interest to the game: chicago is flatcan’t react anymore, so what? milwaukee checks. The Bulls can take comfort in the performance of patrick williams (20 points, 8 rebounds and up to 3 triples) but he cares Alex Carusoentered the concussion protocol after a hit that knocked him out of the way early in race 4. points from DeRozan (23) and of LaVine (24 with also 13 assists) in the end they do no harm, while the Bucks in addition to a Antetokounmpo with 32 points (with 17 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 blocks) and as usual, splendid vacation (26 with 5 triples) enjoy the Allen’s super career (27) and the double double of Portis. Milwaukee is 3-1, with two road wins, and now the NBA champions can close out the series as early as Game 5 in front of the home crowd.
