The score was so bad that TNT cutaway from the Bucks and Heat. When the score hit 93-62 in favor of the Bucks, play-by-play announcer Brian Anderson sent the game back to the studio, according to Yahoo! Sports.
- “There’s a lot of games going on in the NBA, 10 of them as a matter of fact. This doesn’t appear to be one of them.”
The TV cut over to the “NBA on TNT” studios where host Ernie Johnson greeted new viewers.
- “Just give us a call when it gets down to about 15 or 20,” Johnson said.
Yahoo! Sports reports that TNT never returned to the game, though it did offer a quick check-in midway through the third quarter.
A record for the Bucks
The Tuesday night game was historic for the Bucks. The team set a league 3-point record by cashing 29 3-pointers in the 144-97 victory against the Heat, according to the Associated Press.
- “Some nights, the basketball gods are with you a little bit,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “It’s probably one of those nights.”
