Milwaukee kept their cool and scored when it mattered, taking the game away from Memphis in the final quarter 110-103.
It is always about the 4th quarter, about which team can hold their nerves when the stakes are high and the crowd is at their feet.
Milwaukee showed the resolve needed, for them be taken seriously in the league, and not just a one-man show. With Giannis playing his part with 27 points, 9 boards and 7 assists, players like John Henson and the newest addition Eric Bledsoe took charge when required to.
Four of their starters had double digits in scoring.
Memphis put up a fight throughout the ball-game, but shots seemed to just rim out when in the final few minutes.
Tyreke Evans Dillon Brooks scored 27 and 19 respectively. An All-Star performance from Marc Gasol was expected today which he could not seem to generate, as he ended up with just 16 points to his name.
Milwaukee improve to 7-6 leaving behind the Cavs in the East while Grizzlies slide to 7-6 as well in the West.
