Here is a video summary of the Milwaukee Bucks’ victory in the very first regular season game in history in Paris.
A forceps win for the Bucks! The first quarter time was totally to the advantage of Charlotte with a score of 31-24 thanks already to the seven points of Malik Monk and despite a Brook Lopez on fire at three points. The second quarter was more focused and the Bucks won the latter 26-24. But overall, Giannis Antetokounmpo was quite frustrated with only 11 points, a fairly average address and above all three faults. Charlotte therefore logically led to the break. In the second half, the Bucks rose in strength and finally returned to the mark at the end of the third quarter thanks to the rise of the Greek Freak which was doing more and more cleaning in the defense of the Hornets and especially thanks to the very good contribution of the bench with George Hill and Kyle Korver (78-78). Unfortunately for the Hornets and Nicolas Batum (5 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists), the difference was made fairly quickly in the fourth quarter time with Bucks in bulldozer mode despite the enormous skill of Malik Monk.
