The Bucks are really hard to defend. The length that forwards Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo bring to the table is almost impossible to stop, and that was definitely on showcase in tonight’s win. The young duo combined for 54 points and 15 rebounds in tonight’s win. That along with a dominating performance from Greg Monroe off the bench (26 minutes 16 points 16 rebounds) was the perfect combination to an 18 point win. Kansas project Tbon Maker got in game action for the second time in his rookie season and scored 6 points on 2-2 shooting from deep in just one minute of action.
On the Pacers side Paul George struggled defensively, but had a solid game on the offensive side with 23 points, but his 6 turnovers proved costly. Monte Ellis could never really get open shots tonight going for just 6 points, but did help his team with a season high 10 assists. CJ Miles came off the bench and scored 19 points in 24 minutes, but was the only bench player to score in double digits for the Pacers.
