Ivica Zubac scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and ignited a 29: 9 run with the second unit the third and fourth rounds bridged for the Lakers. Zubac ended with 16 points
"They were huge for us," Josh Hart said about the unit that had closed the gap. "They were out there having fun, playing together, pausing in the transition and playing to our strengths, so they have to give them a lot of credit, they fought and brought us back."

Bucks: He made 11 3-pointers
Lakers: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was ejected at the end of the second quarter after loud arguing of a no-call. He had to be held back by Walton and his teammates.
Hart had 13 points and 13 rebounds in his return from a broken left hand, which kept him out of 14 games.
Walton said before the game that during Harts recovery time brought his potential return toward the end of the season, he wanted to give Hart a playing time if enough games were left.
"He was released for play," Walton said. "He has played 3-on-3, 2-on-2 in the last few days and has been hit in this hand a couple of times, and the doctors have told us it's good to go, it's as strong as that other hand, so I think there's no reason why we should not get him out and find some rhythm before we get into the off season. "
HIGH SCHOOL REUNION
Walton attended the University of San Diego High School, where Prunty was head coach of the freshman team and assistant to the varsity team. Prunty coached Walton during high school.
Later in his career, he got a job as a helper at the Cleveland Cavaliers and again trained Walton, who spent two years there before retiring from the NBA.
"I played under Joe in my last year and a half in Cleveland, I saw Joe in the tunnels for years while I was a player," Walton said. "So the fact that we were in the same high school together and he coached me, I survived that part, but if you take a step back, it's kind of weird that my high school coach is now the head coach of the team, against I train. "
Prunty was jokingly blamed for Walton's basketball skills.  "What was interesting at the time was Uni High School, we were red and gold," said Prunty. "The next time I met Luke, after obviously visiting Arizona and the NBA and the Lakers for a while, the next time I saw him in Cleveland, and red and gold were the colors, it was interesting."
