The Orlando Magic shocked the whole NBA with a 122-110 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their NBA Playoff series.
The 8th seeded Magic led from the start and never looked back, with Nikola Vucevic leading the way.
The sweet-shooting center ended with a career-high 35 points in the game earlier today. He also added 14 rebounds and 3 assists in his double-double performance. Terrence Ross, Markelle Fultz and Gary Clark combined to score 48 points for the Florida team.
Orlando’s defense was praised from the start, allowing them to thrive on the offensive side.
Giannis Antetokounmpo carried the load for the Bucks, scoring 31 points, grabbing 17 rebounds and dishing out 7 assists, however, the reigning MVP’s efforts weren’t enough to help the #1 seed pull back and claim the victory.
The rest of the Bucks scoring came from Bledsoe, Hill, Matthews and Middleton but it wasn’t enough to help the Bucks close the gap.
Game 2 of the Playoff matchup is on Thursday at 11pm GMT (6PM EST).
