"It was a good night. You've got to acknowledge it. Some nights the basketball Gods are with you a little bit, and it was probably one of those nights for us," Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said.
When asked about breaking the record, Budenholzer downplayed the significance: "No. I don't even know what record you're talking about."
The matchup was such a blowout that the TNT broadcast cut away from the game after the third quarter.
“There’s a lot of games going on in the NBA, 10 of them as a matter of fact,” play-by-play announcer Brian Anderson said. “This doesn’t appear to be one of them.” He then threw the broadcast back to studio host Ernie Johnson.
“Just give us a call when it gets down to about 15 or 20,” Johnson replied.
From there, the crew hopped from game-to-game across the NBA schedule.
Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra trolled the Bucks after the game: "It looked like they had been thinking about this game for 80 days," he said, referencing the Heat's victory over the Bucks in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
