The Bucks broke a two-knockdown streak by beating the Washington Wizards 126-113 in a particular game in which Antetokounmpo was sent off.
Milwaukee bucks, leader of the Eastern Conference of the NBA, managed to rise after their losses to Dallas and Toronto by defeating 126-113 Washington Wizards in his penultimate game of the season prior to the playoffs.
The note of the night in Orlando was given by the figure of the winner, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who headbutted Moritz Wagner after a disputed action and in which both players exchanged a few words. This led to the expulsion of the Greek, when little more than three minutes of the second quarter had been played.
Despite this situation, the game did not complicate for Wisconsin and they increased the difference over time. In fact, they starred in a second high-scoring episode by signing 42-35 in favor and raising the difference to 10 points.
Brook López was the top scorer in the winner with 24 points, followed by Sterling Brown with 23 and Frank Mason with 19. For his part, before leaving the court due to suspension, Antetokounmpo had registered 12 points and 9 rebounds.
The Bucks take their mark to 56 wins and 16 losses and will close the regular season on Thursday with a clash against the Memphis Grizzlies, 9th in the West and dreaming of the combination of results necessary to oust the Portland Blazers from eighth place.
