The defense, a lot of good stretches that put us in a spot to win a game in a back-to-back, that this time of year is not easy,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. Donte DiVincenzo added 19, Brook Lopez 17 and Jrue Holiday 15 for the Bucks, coming off a 146-125 loss at San Antonio on Monday. Bobby Portis had 10 points and 15 rebounds.
While the Orlando Magic wound up getting swept 3-0 in their season series with Milwaukee, Tuesday’s 114-102 loss was a contrast to the previous two meetings when the Bucks won by an average of 29.5 points. Milwaukee’s last victory — a 124-87 triumph on April 11 — serves as Orlando’s worst loss of the season.
