The Milwaukee @Bucks
thrash the Cleveland @Cavs.
Giannis was out, but it still was not expected for the Cavaliers to be competitive in this game. Eric Bledsoe filled the all-around game for Giannis, as he nearly notched a triple-double in 28 minutes. George Hill also made his debut for the Bucks since being traded from the Cavs, and he made contributions to a game where Milwaukee led by as many as 29 points.
