From tipoff to the final buzzer, the Milwaukee Bucks simply overwhelmed the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. The home team held a 77-45 lead at halftime, which is the second-largest halftime lead in a conference or division finals game in NBA history, and it was smooth sailing for Milwaukee from there.
In the first half, Jrue Holiday guarded Atlanta's All-Star point guard, Trae Young, on 29 of 47 plays and managed to effectively contain him, as Young was only 2-of-8 with six turnovers on those plays. Young's eight first-half turnovers were the most in any half of his career.
The Bucks were led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who used his signature spin moves to dominate in the paint.
Brook Lopez was also a great contributor in the matchup, including with his poster dunk on Clint Capela.
Thanasis Antetokounmpo joined in on the fun with a jam of his own that his brother appreciated from the sideline.
Milwaukee evened the series with a 125-91 blowout victory.
