Milwaukee
Brooklyn

[BROOKLYN] — The Brooklyn Nets played host to the Milwaukee Bucks last night and Nets fans will wish that they could have another crack at this one. The narrow 125-129 defeat was and still is a tough one to swallow. The loss bumps Brooklyn's record down to 9-47 on the season, while the victory gives Milwaukee a 25-30 total on the year. Though the loss stings nonetheless, Nets fans can take solace in the fact that the club's offensive output was above and beyond what the team has displayed so far this season. It may not help come playoff time, but there are worse things than being outplayed by a solid opponent.

An impressive performance from Brook Lopez led all players in the contest and his 36 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assists, 8 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Most importantly, the Bucks managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Lopez keeps producing at this rate and Milwaukee keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Brooklyn didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Giannis Antetokounmpo did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 33 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

From a personal standpoint, Brook Lopez made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 6 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

It's game like this where it's clear that they can't all be victories. Though the Nets would come out of this one empty handed they can rest assured that they did their jobs on the defensive end. Should Brooklyn maintain their defensive fortitude, it's likely that they'll find their way back into the win column soon enough.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Denver Nuggets. The Bucks, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Utah Jazz.
