MILWAUKEE-- The visiting Oklahoma City Thunder employed a well-balanced offense that allowed them to handle the host Milwaukee Bucks, 110-91, on Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Paul George was at the forefront of that impressive assault, sinking four triples to finish with 20 points. Carmelo Anthony and Jerami Grant joined the fray with 17 points apiece while reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook narrowly missed a triple-double with 12 points, 10rebounds and 9 assists.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was great for the Bucks with 28 points but no none of his fellow Bucks scored in double figures as Rashad Vaughn and Thon Maker only had 9 apiece while Johnson drilled in 8.
The Thunder raced to a 31-23 lead after the opening quarter before increasing their cushion to 50-32 at halftime. OKC made 40 of 81 field goals and 12 of 20 triples while Milwaukee settled for just 32 of 76 form the field and 9-of-30 from 3-point distance.
