Eric Bledsoe scored seven straight points during Milwaukee’s big third quarter and finished with 26 while playing his best game as a Milwaukee Buck. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 points, nine rebounds and four assists as the Bucks dominated the Warriors giving Golden State their first home loss of the season.
When asked about what message the convincing win sends, Antetokounmpo said, “That we’ve arrived.”
The Warriors were already without Draymond Green and then lost Curry midway through the third quarter. Curry strained the adductor muscle in his left leg and went to the locker room shortly after and didn’t return. He’s expected to have a MRI on Friday.
Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 24 points and Kevin Durant added 17 points with nine assists and seven rebounds.
Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 points and Khris Middleton had 17 points and six assists as Milwaukee (9-2) won for the second straight time at Oracle Arena when they won 116-107 on March 29th.
The Bucks led 64-51 at halftime, but then outscored the Warriors 41-28 in the third quarter to take a 105-79 lead into the fourth.
With the game in hand, the Bucks were able to empty out the bench the final six minutes of the game.
Up next for the Bucks is a trip to the Staples Center on Saturday night where they play the Clippers. Milwaukee will try and end a two game losing streak in the series to the Clippers.
