Ilyasova misfires on potential game winner in New Orleans
The Bucks had a chance to break their long road losing streak in dramatic fashion Tuesday, but Ersan Ilyasova's potential game winning shot wouldn't fall in an 85-84 loss in New Orleans.
Eric Gordon missed a 10-footer in the final seconds, setting up one final Bucks possession, but Ilyasova couldn't get the winner to go through. Ilyasova and Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 15 points each, while Anthony Davis's 20 was a game high.
The Bucks spent most of the night battling back after the Pelicans started the game on a 15-0 run. Milwaukee has now lost nine straight road games. Their last victory away from the BMO Harris Bradley Center was February 2nd at Toronto.
