Siri criticizes Bucks when asked for game 2 score against Nets
Things are looking bleak for the Bucks in their second-round streak against the Nets.
The Bucks received a 125-86 beating from Brooklyn on Monday, putting the team at 2-0 as the series returns to Milwaukee. The disparity in scores – along with the flat performances of Giannis Antetokounmpo and others – made the Conference’s No.3 seed an easy player. target of criticism and jokes.
Joining the chorus of critics is … Siri? Yeah. If asked for the score of Monday’s game, Apple’s virtual assistant will offer several superlatives, all at Milwaukee’s expense, while recapping the contest. As actor and comedian Ben Schwartz noted:
Other responses include “definitely defeated” and “strongly defeated”. These are by no means false descriptions, but it is always strange to hear this level of description from a phone app.
Naturally, the Nets’ social media team decided to move on, even referring to a recurring “Comedy Bang! Bang!” Joke. – a weekly comedy podcast in which Schwartz appeared for four episodes:
While joking a salad, the Nets defeated the Bucks, 125-86

If Milwaukee is to be more than the butt of everyone’s jokes, he’ll need to win at least one game against Brooklyn as the series returns to friendly territory. That’s especially true for Antetokounmpo, who collected just six first-half points in Monday’s game in an 18-point, 11-rebound effort against Brooklyn. He will have to start playing more like the reigning NBA MVP if Milwaukee is to return to the series.
The Bucks have another chance to do so on Thursday, when they face the Nets at 7:30 p.m. ET.
