Bucks Fall To Grizzlies in Preseason 87-77; Game Called in Fourth Quarter

By Adam Roberts – 10/6/2021

A bizarre situation unfolded late in the Bucks’ preseason opener against Memphis.

Between the third and fourth quarters, fire alarms went off inside FedExForum. While no fire was detected, fans in the arena were evacuated and players were sent to their locker rooms in a scene somewhat reminiscent of when fans were exited from games on March 11th last year when the league suspended the 2019-20 season. After an extended period of no action, the game was called off.

As for the game itself,  Milwaukee lost the game 87-77. Jordan Nwora scored 16 points to lead all Bucks players on a night when most Bucks starters did not play and Giannis didn’t even make the trip.

Milwaukee will visit the Nets for a preseason game on Friday and host Oklahoma City on Sunday.
