The team set another record two days later, trailing by 41 points at halftime of an eventual 123-92 loss to Milwaukee.

Milwaukee overcame a 62-47 halftime deficit against Boston on Christmas Day, picking up a 117-113 win. Power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with a double-double, scoring 36 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. Antetokounmpo had missed the previous five games due to the league’s health and safety protocols. 

Forward Bobby Portis added 16 points and 10 rebounds after a four-game absence of his own, while guard Donte DiVincenzo played 16 minutes in his first game since suffering an ankle injury during last season’s playoffs.
