Covering the impact of coronavirus on the sports world
Game 4 between the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks and the No. 8 Orlando Magic has been a pretty close contest through 24 minutes of action. The Bucks took a slim 58-52 lead into the half, thanks largely to Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 14 first-half points. Brook Lopez also added 10 points for Milwaukee. As he has all series, Nic Vucevic led the way for Orlando. The All-Star center had 16 points, six rebounds, and five assists at the break. The Magic will need some other members of their roster to step up in the second half if they want to walk away with a win.
The Bucks got off to a sluggish start in the Orlando bubble, going just 4-4 during their seeding slate. Then, they were upset in the first game of the series by the Magic. That loss seems to have awakened them, though, as they bounced back and won both Games 2 and 3 by double figures. Antetokounmpo has been dominant throughout the series, and the Magic have struggled to slow him down. They have also struggled to keep up offensively without two key contributors in Aaron Gordon and Jonathan Isaac. Center Nikola Vucevic has been carrying the load for Orlando with averages of 29 points and 9.7 rebounds through three games. Orlando will need another big performance from him if it hopes to even the series up at two games apiece.
