The lakers gave up 109 points in the third quarter and trailed by as many as 30. The lakers got within 10 points in the fourth quarter, but the Bucks rallied behind Giannis Antetokounmpo and Holiday for a 131-116 victory.Westbrook was abandoned in the fourth quarter, and at the end of the game, he reached out to James and Brow to comfort the two core players, which was also interesting.The Lakers’ lineup was relatively complete, with all three in the lineup, with Vince, Russell westbrook and Lebron James leading the way, trevor Ariza and Monk starting, and Middleton, Giannis antetokounmpo and Holiday leading the way for Milwaukee.After the bucks beat the Lakers in the first round, the bucks still have the advantage, and the lakers’ problems remain.From the game’s perspective, the lakers’ defense had obvious problems in the first quarter, and the Bucks’ efficiency was also very high. Giannis antetokounmpo scored 13 points in the quarter, leading the Bucks to a 14-point first-quarter lead.James scored nine of the lakers’ 24 points in the first quarter, and Westbrook was still out of his game.In the second quarter, the lakers’ defense was easily outplayed by the Bucks, giving up 40 points in the quarter and 78 at halftime.Giannis antetokounmpo led the lakers into a 30-point deficit before the lakers rallied for a 10-2 run and Westbrook scored, but he was still ineffective and the most prolific turnovers for the lakers.James hit a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer in the third quarter and opened the fourth with a 3-pointer, but the lakers got within 20 and trailed by 19 on a Stanley Johnson counter.James was benched, while Vogel did not replace Westbrook, who smiled on the sidelines and sat on the floor and did not play in the fourth quarter.Stanley Johnson drew antetokounmpo’s fifth foul, and the bucks failed to challenge antetokounmpo’s fifth foul, which also affected the bucks.Reeves hit a 3-pointer and drew offensive fouls from Monk and Johnson, bringing the lakers to within 12 points, 104-116.Giannis antetokounmpo made a clutch shot, Eyebrows made an inside shot, James was back on the court, and Westbrook was still out.Monk dunked to pull the lakers to within 10, and Portis hit a 3-pointer to put the lakers behind by 13.James was fouled and made one of two free throws, which holiday and Giannis antetokounmpo scored to give the Bucks a 16-point lead.Monk made two more free throws, antetokounmpo made a layup, Eyebrows made it 2-and-1, and Monk scored again to get within 11 points.As you can see, Monk and Eyebrows had a great game, and James was solid, a real big three for the lakers.Russell Westbrook was abandoned in the fourth quarter and giannis antetokounmpo and Holiday scored to end the lakers’ 30-point comeback. James scored 27 points, Davis 22 and Monk 20, and the trio had 69 points in the loss.Westbrook finished 3-of-11 with 10 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four turnovers before being waived again in the final quarter, and his future really isn’t with the lakers.Interestingly enough, at the end of the game, Westbrook went to Timberlake and Lebron James to comfort the two core players.
