The Golden State Warriors continued to sink deep into the frame of panic when losing heavily to the Milwaukee Bucks in the second match of the 2020/21 NBA season.
There is no miracle for this year’s Christmas Eve for the Golden State Warriors. They went on to score 99 points like the opening match of the season with the Nets and went on to receive a bold defeat. On the Milwaukee Bucks field, teachers and students Steve Kerr suffered the match completely with a 99-138 defeat.
The second biggest loser in the history of Christmas matches
The Warriors’ 39-point defeat makes them the second biggest loser in the history of Christmas matches, just behind the 1960 New York Knicks, which lost 100-162 to Syracuse National.
Through the first 2 matches, the Warriors received 2 defeats with a total difference of up to 68 points. This was the second-worst start in the club’s history, just after two consecutive defeats against the Clippers with a total gap of 71 points in the opening stage of the 1987-88 season.
The Milwaukee Bucks entered the game after watching a family member’s Christmas celebration tapes, and it was their motivation to revive from their opening day defeat to the Boston Celtics. Middleton shows the impressive performance when scoring 31 points, reaching FG 10-15 and 3FG up to 6-8. In total, in the first two games of the season, he scored 58 points.
Giannis Antetokounmpo reached a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Although not in high form, only successfully throwing 4 out of 15 shots, but that was enough for the Bucks to crush the visitors. Deer swarm successfully takes up to 20 out of 37 3-point shots, while Golden State Warriors only perform 10-45.
Draymond Green continued to sit out due to injury. Steph Curry and James Wiseman have 19 and 18 points, respectively. In this match, Curry surpassed Rick Barry to become the second most scoring player in the Warriors history. However, the long throw performance of just 2-10 is unlikely to make him happy.
