Bombing away from deep
While they didn’t have the gravitational force that is superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks did not have trouble replicating the offensive formula that has fueled their success on that end of the floor this season.
Letting it fly from long distance 49 times for the night, the Bucks connected on 17 of their attempts, which ties for the sixth-highest amount of made three-pointers they’ve had in a single game this season.
While Malcolm Brogdon and Khris Middleton led the way on that front, the Bucks had eight players collectively pitch in at least one triple throughout the contest. This is where newcomer Isaiah Canaan coronated his Bucks debut as he went a perfect 2-of-2 from three-point range in nearly 12 minutes of run mere hours after cementing his 10-day deal with the club.
With their three-point volume resembling their early season form, the Bucks have continued to trust the long ball and additions like Nikola Mirotic have only reinforced how much of an emphasis that is to their principles.
