MILWAUKEE- The Bucks held a 17 point lead at the end of the first half, and held a lead as big as 21, yet found themselves at the losing end of this game, falling to the Heat 131-126 in the home opener.

MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo had a solid night once again, with a stacked 29/17/9/3/2 statline, but aslo had eight turnovers (tying a career high) and fouled out of his second straight game, this time with around three minutes left in the 4th.

The Bucks on the night finished with 22 assists, but a less than ideal 18 turnovers were a crucial reason for the loss.


Bucks will look to rebound Monday night, when they will welcome John Henson and the Cavaliers to the Fiserv Forum
