Milwaukee struggled to get to the charity stripe through the first 24 minutes of action, as it only had two free throw attempts compared to Dallas' eight.

The Bucks seemingly took control of things in the third after a 14-0 run that put them up by five, but the Mavericks dominated the remainder of the frame to carry a 90-87 lead into the fourth.

Holiday was in the zone in the first quarter, posting 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting. Milwaukee was also firing on all cylinders from beyond the arc, drilling eight 3-pointers to jump out to an early eight-point lead.
