The Sixers held a 19-point lead, but the Bucks stormed back and took the game in overtime 109-105.
There was a little chippiness in the overtime session as Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo made a big bucket in the extra session that gave Milwaukee some breathing room, and he then took a seat at midcourt. The Sixers clearly took notice and Dwight Howard wanted Antetokounmpo and the Bucks to know they saw it, and they will be coming for them in the next matchup.
“We allowed them to get back in the game,” said Howard. “What he did, we can’t control that he had a hell of a game. He made some tough shots at the end of the game, reigning MVP, and he had a great game. I’m not one to talk trash or say anything negative, but we’ll see them again and get different results.”
The Sixers, for now, will have to focus on the Sacramento Kings on Saturday at home.
