Boracay Island, Philippines – Reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 35 points, as the Milwaukee Bucks used a 13-to-2 run at the tail-end of the second quarter to jumpstart a rugged, but comfortable victory over the Detroit Pistons 127-103 on Wednesday night (Thursday morning, Philippine time) at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.
Khris Middleton added 17 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 1 steal, while all other Bucks that saw court time contributed at least 3 points en route to their 13th consecutive victory and a 19-3 win-loss card at the top of the team standings.
Andre Drummond stuffed the stat sheet for Detroit as he amassed 23 markers, 14 boards, 5 dimes, 2 steals, and 3 blocks. Blake Griffin, who had an altercation with Antetokounmpo in the second quarter, added 16 points, but shot an atrocious 4-for-17 from the field.
The Pistons, who dropped to 8 wins and 14 losses, will host the Indiana Pacers on Friday night (Saturday morning, Philippine time).
Meanwhile, the Bucks will try to extend their winning streak, as they host the LA Clippers on the same date.
How they scored:
Bucks 127 – Antetokounmpo 35, Middleton 17, Bledsoe 13, Ilyasova 10, R. Lopez 10, Korver 9, Matthews 8, Wilson 6, DiVincenzo 6, B. Lopez 5, Connaughton 5, Hill 3
