The Bucks, who’ve lost 6 of their last 7 games, were lead by 16 points each from forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and recently acquired guard Michael Carter-Williams. Managing to stay close most of the game, Milwaukee actually lead by 7 points early in the third quarter, before being done in by their game high 24 turnovers (including 6 in the 4th quarter) that lead to 28 points for the Warriors.
