The undermanned Milwaukee Bucks (26-15) jumped on the Brooklyn Nets (24-13) early and never looked back in a 121-109 win inside the Barclays Center.
The Bucks were without six players and their head coach tonight and it didn’t matter.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was magnificent scoring 31 points on 11-of-17 from the field, grabbed seven rebounds and had nine assists.
Khris Middleton had a great third quarter and finished the game with 20 points on 6-of-15 from the field.
Bobby Portis was quiet in the second half, but he was on fire in the first half and finished the game with 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
The Bucks were able to get the bench and young guys some burn in the final five minutes, which is huge on the front end of a back-to-back.
The Bucks will travel to North Carolina to play the Charlotte Hornets (20-19) tomorrow night. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:00 PM (Central Time).
