No Giannis, No Problem. Bucks decimates the Raptors.

As Giannis Antetokounmpo sits on the bench observing his team, a sly smile creeps onto his lips as the undefeated Milwaukee Bucks steamrolled on the Toronto Raptors , another undefeated Eastern Conference powerhouse 124-109 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

A new system in play from coach Mike Budenholzer injected new life into a rejuvenated team, with role players Ersan Ilyasova scoring a season-high 19 points together with Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe putting up 17 points each.

On the other end, Raptors had Kawhi Leonard resting for another huge game against the Sixers the following day.

Serge Ibaka dropped 30 points while Pascal Siakam offered another 22 but they could not keep up with the pace and shooting of the Bucks, who eclipsed the 110-point mark for the seventh straight game. Kyle Lowry only posted 9 points and missed all nine of his three point attempts. Milwaukee’s 19 three pointers made were the Raptor’s maker as they only hit a measly 9 of 45 from deep.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first game in NBA history between teams with a record of 6-0 or better.

The Bucks take on the Boston Celtics next.
