Milwaukee Bucks Dominate Los Angeles Lakers in LA

The Milwaukee Bucks (35-21) dominate the Los Angeles Lakers (26-29), 131-116, on Tuesday night inside the Crypto.com Arena in a game that was not nearly as close as the score indicates.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 44 points on 17-of-20 shooting and grabbed 14 rebounds and eight assists while making his first 11 shots.

Antetokounmpo has now scored at least 25 points in 20 straight games, just five short of the Milwaukee franchise record.

Khris Middleton scored all 21 of his points in the first half and Bobby Portis had 23 points with five 3-pointers as the defending NBA champions won their fourth straight overall and swept back-to-back games against the two LA teams.

Milwaukee jumped to a 24-point lead in the first half with 70-percent shooting and led by 30-points midway through the third quarter before surviving a late Lakers rally.

The Bucks are now 3-0 on the West Coast road-trip, with all three wins coming in blowout fashion.

Up Next:

The Bucks will close out the road-trip with a NBA Finals rematch against the Phoenix Suns (44-10) on Thursday, February 10th. Tipoff from the Footprint Center is scheduled for 9:00 PM (Central Time) and will be televised on TNT.
