Charlotte Hornets 107-96 Milwaukee Bucks – Highlights – October 26, 2016 – 2016-17 NBA Season
The Charlotte Hornets turned up the pressure on the Milwaukee Bucks from the outset of their season opener.
Nicholas Batum disrupted the Bucks on the perimeter. Center Roy Hibbert had his teammates’ backs in the paint.
The defense helped Charlotte build a big early lead, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 23 points and 14 rebounds in his return from a shoulder injury in the 107-96 victory over Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 31 points, nine rebounds and five assists. The 6-foot-11 forward, now serving as Milwaukee’s primary ball-handler, showed he was worth the four-year $100 million contract extension he signed before training camp.
