Bucks dominate Warriors: updates, highlights from 2022 NBA Thursday game

At the halfway point of the season, we have a clearer picture of the teams that are more likely to be left standing at the season’s end. 

Although not many would have had the Warriors as championship contenders prior to the season tipping off, they certainly have them among the leaders now, but Golden State has been playing short-handed despite getting Klay Thompson back, they are missing defensive stalwart Draymond Green.

Milwaukee has also faced adversity this season after claiming their first championship in 50 years. The Bucks have had stints at various stages of this season without key players in Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and, two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. 

Milwaukee entered this game having lost two in a row, but The Greek Freak has been playing at an MVP level once again this season – averaging 28.4 points, 11.4 rebounds and 6.0 assists so far this season. He didn’t disappoint against Golden State notching a triple-double with 30 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. This was Antetokounmpo’s 28th career triple-double tying Michael Jordan on the all-time list. 

The Bucks were never troubled and built a 30-point lead at the half-time break – the biggest deficit the Warriors have faced this season.

Golden State managed to win the second half, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Bucks from claiming their seventh wire-to-wire victory this season.
