Buddy wasted no time getting in the scoring column nailing a 20-foot jumper to give the Kings an early 2-0 advantage at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento California. The Buddy Hield Milwaukee Bucks Highlights would not end there as Hield would go on to tie his career high with 21 points to go along with 4 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal in 35 minutes on the floor. Hield was impressive with 8 of 16 (50%) shooting from the field including 2 three-pointers. Buddy got the scare of his life with less than 6 minutes remaining in the second quarter on a driving attempt to the basket against Bucks 6’9 (245lbs.) power forward Mirza Teletovic who crashed into Buddy’s shooting hand causing him to react in extreme pain. Hield, normally a 90% free-throw shooter on the season, would miss both shot attempts. During a brief timeout, Buddy grimaced in pain but continued to play after the collision.
Fortunately, his ability to shoot effectively and dribble penetrate were not hampered for the remainder of the game as Hield had a big second half scoring 12 of his 21 total points after halftime.
