Shooting just 33.3% overall and 12.5% behind the arc, the Milwaukee Bucks face a 27-22 deficit after a quarter tonight against the Charlotte Hornets.
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s missed breakaway dunk seems emblematic of the Bucks’ trouble putting the ball into the hoop. Milwaukee is just 8 for 24 overall and 1 for 8 on 3-pointers.
Nicolas Batum leads Charlotte with seven points. Khris Middleton leads the Bucks with eight.
The Bucks are seeking their sixth straight victory and also are looking to avenge a 110-107 loss at Charlotte back on Nov. 26. They are 5-0 in rematch games against teams that have beaten them.
