Milwaukee Bucks scored 29 3-pointers in win over Miami Heat

Milwaukee Bucks scored 29 3-pointers in win over Miami Heat

In a new NBA day, the Milwaukee Bucks have broken the historical record for triples in the same game by adding 29 hits from long distance in their final victory over the Miami Heat (144-97). After a poor performance against the Knicks, came a triumph with hierarchy and the new mark for the league.

It was a kind of revenge for the Bucks because the Heat had been their executioner in the past semifinals of the Eastern Conference. There was a great team performance, with 12 of 13 players scoring at least one triple.

The main record makers were Jrue Holiday (6), Donte DiVincenzo (5) and Khris Middleton (4). Interestingly, the only one who did not score from three points was the team’s great star: Greek power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, MVP of the league in the last two seasons, finished with just 9 points (3/9 in shooting from field and 0/2 in triples), 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals in his 24 minutes of play.

The icing on the cake was rookie Sam Merrill (3 points), who scored the record-breaking triple: “It’s exciting. I am happy that I was at the right time and place. I had no idea (of the record), I didn’t know it until the end of the game. “

What’s surprising is that this shocking record set by the Bucks comes two nights after they had hit just seven 3s in 38 attempts (18.4%), clearly costing them a loss to the New York Knicks. They were vindicated with a shocking record of 29 hits in 51 attempts (56.8%).

The previous record was held by the Houstons Rockets, who scored 27 3-pointers in a game against the Phoenix Suns in April 2019.

In addition, this victory by 47 points of difference also ranked as one of the most bulky in NBA history: it was tied for the third widest of all time against a reigning champion of the Eastern Conference.

“Some nights the basketball gods are with you, and it’s probably one of those nights for us,” said Mike Budenholzer, the Bucks coach. (GG) (Ibfobae)
