Dollars destroy Heat early with record-breaking 3-point barrage
The Milwaukee Bucks left to a dominant start versus the Miami Heat, outscoring the reigning Eastern Conference champs, 83-51 in the first half.
A substantial part of Milwaukee’s hot start can be credited to their outrageous 3-point shooting. In reality, the Cream City team set a franchise record for 3-pointers made in a single half with 15.
Here’s Khris Middleton’s shot that broke the Bucks’ previous record for triples made in a half:
Middleton led the method for the Bucks through the first 2 frames, thanks to his 20 points, 3 helps and two rebounds. Superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has also strung together a well-rounded effort of his own en route to scoring 7 points along with his five helps and 4 rebounds across 16 minutes of play in the opening half.
It is also worth noting that 4 Milwaukee players have scored in double figures and all 10 Bucks seeing time on the court have scored.
Naturally, the Bucks won the Eastern Conference during the 2019-20 regular season despite coming up method short come playoff time-which might be playing into the team’s efficiency versus Miami. On the other hand, the Heat, a team that apparently came out of nowhere down in Orlando, eventually reached the NBA Finals as the 2019-20 Eastern Conference Champions before failing against the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers.
