Bucks only needs three quarters to start the warriors out of the gym Thursday.
You did not expect to read this sentence.
Sure, Diamond Green did not play. However, Milwaukee scored 105 points in just 36 minutes in Oracle Arena and led Golden State on 26 points.

Three-quarters Kevin Durant (minus 28), Clay Thompson (minus 27) and Stephen Carey (minus 26) had no answers to Mike Budenholzer's squad. The Durant had six turns. Carrie was without a three.

They made 14 rounds through three quarters and kept the defending champions all night long. The long arms all over the court kept the buzz of defense.
Eric Bledso was a high season 26 and Pat Connaughton was putting people on posters on the way to 15 points to lead the bench.

There is only so much statement that can be made in November. However, Janis is right, Bucks have arrived.
Let's hope they stay around for a while.
