The Bucks win in the "special" night of Mirotic; Pau did not play

Milwaukee beat the Pelicans, the team where the Spanish international was during 62 games between last season and this one.


The Milwaukee Bucks won in their visit to New Orleans (113-130) with good performances by Giannis Antetokounmpo (24 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists) and Khris Middleton (23 + 5 + 7), and on a very special for Nikola Mirotic. The Spanish international returned to the city that gave him a second life in the NBA after his tough final in Chicago. There, with the Pelicans, he played the best playoffs of his career (15.0 on average), with some game to remember as the third against the Portland Trail Blazers (30 points) .

" Pelicans fans were very good for me and my family, thank you for another great day, "he wrote on social networks Mirotic, which before the closing of the market was transferred to some Bucks who fight face to face with the NBA's elders (they are first in the Eastern Conference), something that your team at this time does not dream of getting ... especially until it does not solve once and for all the problem Anthony Davis.

Mirotic, in New Orleans

The power forward, who still wants to leave Luisiana, only played 21 minutes (he stayed out again in the fourth quarter), but gave him time to add 21 points and 12 rebounds. Elfrid Payton, meanwhile, signed a triple-double with 14 points, 15 sacks and 11 assists.

On his return home, Mirotic came to 14 with only a triple of five attempts (although it was not the day for anyone since the perimeter: 21% the locals, 27% the visitors), while Pau Gasol did not play a minute: he has not jumped on the track in two of the five games since he changed Milwaukee for San Antonio. The reason for his absence is unknown.
