Bucks Crush Heat, Suns Dismantle Pelicans

Jonathan Grant | December 30th, 2020

We’re not far into the NBA season, but we have already seen our fair share of drubbings. Another one took place on Tuesday night when the Milwaukee Bucks obliterated the Miami Heat by a score of 144-97 on the road. In doing so, the Bucks set an NBA record for the most three-pointers made in a game, with 29, getting a measure of revenge against the defending Eastern Conference champions in the process. All but one of their 13 players made a three, with Giannis Antetokounmpo, the reigning MVP, being the only man to not sink one.

He finished with just nine points on the night in 24 minutes of action, though they didn’t need him due to their sharpshooting. Khris Middleton led the way with 25 for them as he sunk ten of his 13 shots from the field. Elsewhere, there was another big win, this time for the Phoenix Suns. They took apart the New Orleans Pelicans, downing them 111-86. Jae Crowder led all scorers on the evening with 21, outdueling Zion Williamson by one. Cameron Johnson also had 18 for the victors as they used a strong second quarter (one in which they outscored the Pelicans 35-15) to pull away for good. The Pelicans are now 2-2 on the new season while the Suns are 3-1 through four games.
