Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a league’s season-high 54 points. Despite his effort, the Bucks lost to the Pacers by two points, 126-124. The Indiana Pacers’ 18-point lead melted away. Also, they had to come back from ten points down in the fourth for their third win in a row.
According to a sportsbook pay per head industry blog, Tyrese Haliburton led the Pacers in scoring with 29 points, six rebounds, and ten assists. In addition, Bennedict Mathurin contributed 26 points and 11 boards.
Despite his very outstanding point total, two-time MVP Antetokounmpo had two costly mistakes as the Bucks tried to recover the lead in the last minutes, the second of which occurred after Mathurin knocked the ball away.

The Pacers jumped off to an early lead and carried that advantage through the first quarter when they led by 14. Bucks won without Lillard thanks to Antetokounmpo’s 46 points.
Milwaukee played without head coach Adrian Griffin in the closing portions of the game. He was dismissed in the third for disputing a non-call on Antetokounmpo, believing he was getting fouled quite a bit.
