The Milwaukee Bucks got completely destroyed by the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday night.
Things got so bad during the blowout 142-101 loss that members of the Grizzlies were actually performing the wave with fans while sitting on the bench.
Yes, this game wasn’t a game at all – it was an embarrassment.
Is this a dirty play by Khris Middleton? pic.twitter.com/UnolhL1W5s

Speaking of Middleton, he angered many Grizzlies fans during the game when he got tangled up with Dillon Brooks.
Brooks, who has long gotten under the skin of his competitors, was not too happy when Middleton wrapped his arms around his legs and seemingly tried to slow him down or pull him down.
The play immediately got the whistle and Middelton received a foul – which was later upgraded to a flagrant-1 foul after a replay review.
This was just one of the many bad moments for Middleton during the game.
Middleton did not have his best night against the Grizzlies.
In the end, he scored only 3 points, 2 rebounds, and 5 assists and played for 22 minutes.
He was 1-of-12 on shooting from the field and also had 4 turnovers too.
By the time he left the game for good, there was little chance of the Bucks turning things around.
It’s not common to see Middleton have such a rough time on the court but the star player is still recovering from being away from the game for so long.
There is a very good chance that he is just finding his footing again and will be much stronger in the second half of the season.
