Here are the scores, updates, and results of the NBA 2020-2021 regular season match between the Charlotte Hornets (CHA) and the Milwaukee Bucks (MIL) on April 10, 2021 (All times are in Philippine Standard Time) at the Fiserv Forum.
The starters of the Charlotte Hornets had a blast in terms of scoring for their team. 3 Hornets got 20 or more points.
Miles Bridges erupted 26 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, and went 8-13 from the field. Graham and Rozier finished with 40 combined points, 20 for each of them while Washington added 18 points. Additionally, McDaniels scored 19 points to help his team win over the Bucks.
“I’m proud of our guys, that they’ve put us in this position to be where we’re at,” James Borrego, the head coach of the Hornets shared. “I love that and I’m proud of them. But we can’t be complacent. We haven’t done anything. We haven’t accomplished anything yet.”
Meanwhile, the short-handed Bucks have lost their third straight today. Antetokounmpo missed his fourth consecutive game with a sore left knee. The squad is also missing key players such as Jrue Holiday who has a bruised left knee, Donte DiVincenzo with a bruised right hip, Brook Lopez who has a sore back, Khris Middleton who has a sore right knee and their reserve forward who is PJ Tucker who has a strained left calf.
“We didn’t know until like before the game, probably like 45 minutes before the game or something like that,” McDaniels shared. “But it’s still the same mentality. If they’re playing or not, we’re still going out there to compete, play hard and come out with the win.”
Jordan Nwora, who is currently averaging 8.2 minutes per game, had played for 32 minutes within this matchup. He scored 24 big points for their team while grabbing 6 rebounds. Jeff Teague ended the game with 19 points while Forbes chipped in 18. Portis who played for 25 minutes ended the game with a double-double performance. The big man scored 10 points to go along with 13 rebounds. Knowing that most of their key players are not around to play, the rest of the team played excellently, but it was not enough to defeat the opposing team.
The Hornets rise up to 27-24 while the Bucks fall down to 32-30.
