Antetokounmpo scores 35 points, Bucks beat 76ers 118-110

While things have looked pretty bleak for the Bucks since they returned from the All-Star break with a signature win against the Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee's outstanding third quarter run on Sunday helped to secure an important win, and hopefully restore some confidence in the process.

Victor Oladipo had 21 points to lead the Pacers, who held on after almost blowing a 17-point lead in the middle of a mistake-laden fourth quarter on Friday night (Saturday, Manila time).

Victor Oladipo finished with 21 points and was one of six Pacers to score in double figures.

Middleton led all scorers with 30 points, and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Bucks. Milwaukee looked out of sorts at times offensively and alternated near-misses with out-of-control possessions until the near-comeback in the fourth quarter.

Friday's loss was Milwaukee's fourth straight after it won nine of its first 12 games under interim coach Joe Prunty.

The Bucks erased a 20-point deficit in the first quarter and fell behind 19 in the third before going on a 21-0 run to pull ahead for good. Eric Bledsoe added 22 points as Milwaukee improved to 34-29.

MILWAUKEE - Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points and Milwaukee snapped a four-game losing streak, scoring 36 points off Philadelphia's season-high 26 turnovers in a victory.

Last week, three billboards popped up in OH with messages trying to convince James to sign with the Sixers this summer. The latest effort includes billboards, paid by injury attorney Jacob Emrani , in LA meant to catch the eye of James.

With 20 games to go in the regular season, in is now in the 5 spot in the Eastern Conference. In the two games around that, he has made 17 of 29 shots, including eight of 14 from 3-point range as he has averaged 20.0 points in those last three games.. Antetokounmpo had 12 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, but was 4-for-10 from the floor while Bledsoe missed 7 of 8 first-half shots.

Lance Stephenson added 16 points for IN, and Bogdanovic had 14 after going 12 of 13 from the foul line. After edging Washington, the Pacers are 17-8 in their last 25 games. Lance Stephenson added 16 points off the bench, while Myles Turner contributed 13 points, nine rebounds, and two blocks. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings, the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. They will play in Washington on Sunday, before returning home on Monday to play Milwaukee. The under is 6-1 the last seven games Milwaukee has played on the back end of consecutive nights, 10-3 in their last 13 on the road and 16-5 in their last 21 versus conference rivals.

"We came into this game with the mentality that we have to win no matter what" Antetokounmpo said. IN entered 13-16 on the road, matching last season's win total.

Milwaukee got no closer than four the rest of the way.

Indiana, meanwhile, are coming off a victory that represents a major psychological hurdle; they have beaten all of the other teams who comprise the current eight teams in the Eastern Conference playoff picture at least once.

One win aside, it is still hard to take Milwaukee seriously until they either settle on Tony Snell as a shooting guard, or find more offense from the two guard spot.

Milwaukee ranks fifth in three pointers allowed per game (26.7) while in ranks 26th (30.7). But this also feels like a game for the Pacers to continue their roll with a 106-101 victory. Tip-off time is 7 pm EST.
