The Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association (NBA) overturned a 26-point deficit against the Portland Trail Blazers and achieved a thrilling comeback victory.

Milwaukee won 108-102 in a home game against Portland in the 2023-2024 NBA regular season held at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA on the 27th (Korean time).

On this day, Milwaukee struggled, trailing by 26 points, 55-81, until the beginning of the third quarter.

However, Milwaukee, led by Giannis Antetokounmpo scoring 33 points, 16 rebounds, and 6 assists, and Damian Lillard scoring 31 points, succeeded in turning the situation around.

Overturning the 26-point gap was the largest comeback win in the regular league this season.

Before this game, the Toronto Raptors overturned a 23-point deficit against the Washington Wizards on the 14th, and also overcame a 22-point deficit against the San Antonio Spurs on the 6th.

The record for the largest comeback win in NBA history was when the Utah Jazz overturned a 36-point deficit against the Denver Nuggets in November 1996.

This game was also the first matchup for Milwaukee Lillard, who was Portland’s franchise star until last season, against Portland.

Lillard was a star player who played in Portland for 11 seasons starting from the 2012-2013 season and was selected as an All-Star seven times.

However, after the 2022-2023 season ended, he requested a trade and wore a Milwaukee uniform in the 2023-2024 season.

Lillard, who bombarded his ‘home team‘ with 31 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists on this day, said, “At first, it felt strange because there were so many familiar faces on the opposing team,” and “After the game started, I tried to think like other opponents. “He expressed his feelings.

For Portland, DeAndre Ayton, acquired in the Lillard trade, scored 14 points and 13 rebounds, and rookie Scoot Henderson scored 13 points.
