NBA Roundup: Milwaukee Bucks bounce back and sets three-pointer record in win over Miami Heat

The Milwaukee Bucks completely obliterated the Miami Heat on Tuesday in a rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference finals and also broke the record for most 3-pointers made by a team in a single game with 29.

The Heat might have beaten the Bucks to reach the 2020 NBA finals earlier this year, but it was the Bucks that took the new season’s rematch with a dominant 144-97 victory.

The standing record was broken by Milwaukee Buck’s second-round pick, Sam Merrill, with just over six minutes left in the game to make the team’s 28th 3-pointer.

The Bucks then set a new record for the most amount of players with a made 3-pointer with 12 with the reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, being the only person who didn’t knock down a 3-pointer during the Tuesday win as Jrue Holiday led all his teammates with six made 3-pointers.

On Tuesday, Holiday, Merrill, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Donte DiVincenzo, Bobby Portis, D.J. Wilson, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Jordan Nwora, Pat Connaughton, DJ Augustin, and Bryn Forbes all  knocked down a three pointer for Milwaukee.

However, the Heat won’t have to wait long to try and exact revenge should they want to as they take on Milwaukee once again tomorrow night.
