Michael Carter-Williams gets hit twice as Bucks eliminated

Former Syracuse star Michael Carter-Williams had a rough final game of his 2014-15 campaign.

For starters, his Milwaukee Bucks were blown out 120-66 in game six of the first round of the NBA playoffs by the Chicago Bulls. And injury to insult? He took a cheap shot from Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy — twice. That should change your NBA betting patterns.

The first incident occured in the opening quarter, when Carter-Williams drove to the basket and was punched in the face by Dunleavy as he went by. Carter-Williams had to come out of the game, and didn’t return until 1:42 left in the first quarter.

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo got a measure of revenge on Dunleavy with 1:34 left in the second quarter, as he hip checked Dunleavy into the first row of seats as Dunleavy attempted a 3-pointer. Antetokounmpo was ejected as a result of the play.

Carter-Williams and Dunleavy got back into it in the third quarter, when Dunleavy took a shot at Carter-Williams’ throat. The guard reacted by grabbing Dunleavy around the neck with his left arm and throwing Dunleavy to the ground.

Carter-Williams was assessed a tecnical foul on the play.

In the former SU star’s first NBA playoff series, he averaged 12.2 points, 4.8 assists and 4.5 rebounds while appearing in 31.8 minutes per game.
