The Milwaukee Bucks played without the injured two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. He was out due to a strained calf injury. As such, the Bucks had to rely on Damian Lillard again. Although he failed to lead his team to victory like he did on match day one, his performance was a bit of encouragement despite the heartbreak it caused the fans.

Furthermore, the star scored an astonishing 26 points by halftime from 7 of 12 field goals made and 6/11 three-point shots. Still, sadly, those numbers meant little as the Indiana Pacers’ Pascal Siakam ensured the game was tied heading to the Gainbridge Fieldhouse when he came up with a career-high 37 points, 11 rebounds, and six assists to tie the series.

Dame Lillard ended the game with four rebounds and five assists. Also, Brook Lopez of the Milwaukee Bucks scored 22 points, one rebound, and three assists as he shot 6 of 7 from beyond the arc. And for the Indiana Pacers, Myles Turner scored 22 points, seven rebounds, and six assists.

Most fans believe he needs help from his teammates to see the Bucks perform better. That shouldn’t take long, as Giannis, who sat out this game, might be back before the series ends. Hopefully, it isn’t too late for fans to see the greatness of Dame Time.
