In fact, Antetokounmpo scored just nine points in the 24 minutes he played, ending his own streak of 108 consecutive games scoring at least 10 points.
It was a clear and obvious strategy employed by Milwaukee.
Recognizing the Heat would be guarding the paint to negate Antetokounmpo’s penetrative offensive play, the Bucks showered Miami with threes from the outset.
It was a true team effort, setting another NBA record with 12 players on the roster netting at least one 3-pointer — the most in a single game. Everyone who played against Miami from the Bucks roster made at least one 3-point attempt except one player — Antetokounmpo.
While Khris Middleton led the team in points, it was Jrue Holiday who scored the most threes, making six of his 10 attempts.
At one point the Bucks were up by 49 points, but the final winning margin was 47 points — the largest margin of victory in a road game in Bucks franchise history.
