“Get Giannis some help please” – Milwaukee fans on social media upset with Bucks’ 35-point blowout loss to the Kings

The 2nd seed Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Sacramento Kings by 35 points.

Ever since the beginning of March, things have started to change in the NBA. The best teams in the league are unable to win against the teams that have a poorer winning record than them.

The Milwaukee Bucks played against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. To everyone’s surprise, the second-best team in the Eastern Conference could not win against the 7th seed in the West. An even more shocking fact is that the Bucks lost by a whopping 35 points. As expected, the Bucks fans were certainly upset by the team’s underwhelming performance.

Other than the star performer Giannis Antetokounmpo, nearly no one on the team contributed to getting the win. Including Damian Lillard, who only scored 10 points in 33 minutes. 

That’s not all; surprising enough, nobody on the team scored more than 11 points other than Antetokounmpo, who had 30 and scored a double-double with 13 rebounds. The Bucks had a 36.6 field goal percentage and a shocking 17.9% on 3-pointers.

Despite having more than double free throw attempts than the Kings, the Bucks could not get their score higher.

On the other hand, the Kings performed as a unit, and players together contributed to the win. De’Aaron Fox led the pack with 29 points, six rebounds, and seven assists. Domantas Sabonis, who almost scored another triple-double, had 22 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists. Malik Monk also added 25 points.

Bucks fans were upset by the team’s shocking loss

After hiring the new head coach, the Bucks seemed in trouble. But things started changing after the All-Star break.

The Bucks won six straight games after the break and now the situation has again escalated since the start of March. The team has lost three of their last four games on the road.

They won against the 4th-best team in the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Clippers, and lost to the three teams that are lower than the 7th rank in the West. However, Tuesday’s loss was more upsetting for fans, as most players had less than an average score. Fans showed disappointment towards the team on social media, eliciting a plethora of reactions online. 

Sharing a wide spectrum of reactions online, here are some of the reactions to the loss:

The Kings were dominating throughout the game, as they maintained the lead from the very beginning. The Bucks’ poor shooting was the reason behind the loss.

Lillard, who considers himself one of the best shooters in the game, was only 2/12 from field goals and made only one three-pointer in the game. Therefore, the fans’ reaction to the performance was not surprising.
