Game Youth Auston Matthews Jersey Eric Bledsoe replaced the injured Giannis Antetokounmpo as the Milwaukee Bucks’ all-purpose threat and ran circles around the Orlando Magic.
Coach Joe Prunty was just as impressed with the contributions from his quick point guard that didn’t make the stat sheet.
Bledsoe had his fourth career triple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in a 102-86 win on Monday night in the final regular-season game at the Bradley Center.
The shooting touch was missing Monday, when Orlando was just 5 of 24 from behind the arc.
The Magic couldn’t make up for the misses on the defensive Justin Patton Youth jersey end, especially in the third quarter.
It’s been the case all season. Our defense has never been consistent enough, coach Frank Vogel said.
Milwaukee won its second straight game without Antetokounmpo, who is resting a sore right ankle. Both victories came against 50-loss teams.
After making his first two starts of the season in chilly weather, Syndergaard took the mound on a humid, 83-degree night and tired in the sixth. He also dealt with blisters on two fingers but said they weren’t a hindrance.
I was actually just more annoyed with my hair flipping in my eyes, he said.
He was sweating, and his hair was hitting him in the face, manager Mickey Callaway confirmed with a chuckle. He said that’s what he was most frustrated with.
Syndergaard (2-0) had less than his best stuff but stranded four runners in scoring position. That was good enough to help the Mets extend their longest winning streak since September 2016, and they improved to 8-1, matching their start in 1985 and 2006.
It’s a lot of fun watching us play, Syndergaard said. It’s a contagious feeling. Everybody is on the edge of the dugout cheering each other on. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of.
Jeurys Familia escaped a jam in the ninth to earn his fifth save, most in the majors. He gave up a single and double before striking out Miguel Rojas and Starlin Castro for the victory.
