A snap to their eight game winning streak is the least of all worries, as two-time MVP Steph Curry walks off the court with a groin injury in the third quarter.
The high-flying Milwaukee Bucks decimated the Golden State Warriors 134-11, leading the game with a whopping 84-34 for points in the paint. This is all made possible after the new NBA ruling which does not allow defending players to wrap their arms around another player and the emphasis of freedom of movement hurt the Warriors hard with the long striding Giannis Antetokounmpo scoring easy baskets from under the rim and the post.
Eric Bledsoe led the game with 26 points from 10/12 shooting, while Antetokounmpo provided the Bucks with 24 points, nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

The Warriors’ Klay Thompson led with 24 points and Kevin Durant had 17 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.
The Bucks who are playing with a much higher pace and higher tendency of shooting from the perimeter, shocked the Warriors with a 41-28 third quarter. Curry and his crew has been known to turn it up in the third, usually scoring on a higher efficiency and begin to breakaway from the opposition.
The Bucks also led in five major categories – steals, blocks, assists, rebounds and fast break points. The Warriors however, led only in total turnovers.
