Milwaukee’s strong start to the season continues. NBA champions in 2021 and among the favorites to win the title again this year, The Bucks, indeed, have strung together a fifth consecutive victory, this time against Atlanta (123-115), and therefore remain the only franchise still undefeated. In their Fiserv Forum room, the team led by Mike Budenholzer had to give an intense fight to afford the attractive Hawks, especially for a very good Trae Young (42 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists). For this, on the night from Saturday to Sunday, Milwaukee was once again able to count on a Giannis Antetokounmpo of the great nights (34 points and 17 rebounds). For the occasion, the “Greek Freak” was greatly helped by Jrue Holiday, also the author of 34 points, as well as 12 assists. In the last minutes, if the visitors managed to regain control of the score (106-107 then 108-109), it was the Bucks who had the last laugh and continue to ride atop the Eastern Conference with a perfect record. Receiving the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 1 shouldn’t stop his beautiful mechanics.
Giannis dropped 17 points in the fourth quarter and helped seal the win.

The Warriors surprised again
A turbulent start to the reign for the reigning champions. Last night, in their sixth game of the season, Golden State was defeated for the third time and remains in the AC since the start of this new exercise. After the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns, this time it was the Charlotte Hornets, but still deprived of LaMelo Ball, who dominated the Warriors (120-113, ap), which nevertheless maintain a balanced balance sheet. At the Spectrum Center, if Steve Kerr’s players were led for much of the game, it was they who almost won in the end but Dennis Smith Jr. swept the stretch (107-107). In his room, the teammates of PJ Washington (31 points and 7 rebounds) ended up giving a bad blow to the champions, who are struggling to take off this season. However, in North Carolina, Stephen Curry had shown great things on the court with 31 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists to his credit., while Jordan Poole had also been in sight (24 points). After that setback, Golden State will need to bounce back tonight when they travel to Little Caesars Arena to take on the Detroit Pistons, who definitely don’t have an easy schedule right now.
