During the halftime, there was no sort of yelling from Bucks’ locker room. There was only a little bit of talk for overcoming that 20-point deficit. The discussions really helped the Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo managed to lead the team with his 33 points as Bucks tied their franchise record for the second-half comeback by beating Miami Heat on Friday night by 113-98.
Antetokounmpo squad, “it does not matter at all if your team is down by 10, 15 or even 20 points. You need to just keep playing hard and this is a process. You have got to need to win games like this too. When on road, you have got to have the nerve to face adversity like this. To tell the truth, it is not easy. We need to become a great team and for that, we need to keep playing hard.”
Antetokounmpo also scored 16 rebounds with 9 assists on top of his 33 points as he fell on assist short of making a triple-double in this game.
As the first half ended, Bucks were at 42 points while Miami were at the lead with 62 points. After that, Bucks made a rally to be at 71 points with Miami being at 36 points. Milwaukee bucks with this win have become the first team in the NBA history to have been trailed by 20 points at least and then make a comeback to win the game by 15 points at least.
