Milwaukee Remains Too Tough For Hornets In Season Series Finale

Though it was Leap Day, the Charlotte Hornets still weren’t leaping into the win column against the Milwaukee Bucks, who handed their purple-and-teal hosts a 111-99 home loss on Thursday night.

Adding some context to how one-sided the season series has been, this was Milwaukee’s smallest margin of victory over Charlotte in the four head-to-head battles. Brandon Miller scored a team-high 21 points and Miles Bridges had a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double for the Hornets, who failed to crack 100 points in all four meetings with the Bucks this year.

Milwaukee opened the contest with a quick 8-0 spurt, while the Hornets missed their first seven shots.
