The Milwaukee Bucks (18-13) take down the Sacramento Kings (12-18) inside the Fiserv Forum, 128-115, for their second consecutive win with big performances from Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo with Jrue Holiday still sidelined.
The win was also the ninth consecutive win over the Sacramento Kings.
It’s nice to have fans back inside the Fiserv Forum, granted it’s not 100 percent capacity, but still nice to have at least some sort of home court advantage.
Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 38 points on 9-of-19 from the field, 1-of-2 from 3-point range and 19-for-24 at the free throw line. The Greek Freak also had 18 rebounds and four assists.
Khris Middleton finished with 32 points on 13-of-22 from the field (3-of-5 from 3) and 3-of-3 from the foul line and eight rebounds and six assists.
Donte DiVincenzo played good defense tonight on De’Aaron Fox, while also scoring 16 points on 7-of-12 from the field.
Pat Connaughton finished with 12 points and Bryn Forbes added 10 points.
The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Minnesota Timberwolves (7-24) on Tuesday, February 23. Tip-off is set for 7:00 PM (Central Time).
The Timberwolves fired Ryan Saunders tonight, who went 43-95 with the team. Saunders was in his third season with the franchise.
