The Magic continue to pay for Fultz’s injury, their big surprise at the start of the season, and they don’t have Isaac, another of their young assets, either. They begin to see the consequences and they are not good. The Bucks, in what was a rematch of the tie that both teams played in the bubble and that marked the momentary suspension of the show after the shooting of citizen Jacob Blake, took advantage of the circumstances.
The locals fought it to the end. The match, despite ending with a bulky difference, was not resolved until the fourth period. He entered it with four points difference between the two teams and even the Magic were put to two, but the greater power of Budenholzer’s was worth for the break in the decisive section.
Nikola Vucevic (28 points and 13 rebounds) was the most successful of the match, but his contribution did not help to avoid the defeat of his team by 22. Aaron Gordon, with 21 points, helped him and stood out with a mate over Giannis. The Greek was the best of the Bucks with 22 points, followed by Khris Middleton and Bobby Portis (both, with 20) and a Bryn Forbes who signed 14 points.
It’s only the Bucks’ second straight win, but that allows them to beat the Magic in the Eastern Conference standings. 7-4 for Milwaukee and 6-5 for Orlando, which has lost three straight games.
