Antetokounmpo, Middleton help Bucks defeat Lakers 109-102
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 47 points and Khris Middleton tied Milwaukee’s franchise record for career 3-pointers in the Bucks’ 109-102 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.
Middleton returned after missing eight games due to COVID-19 and made consecutive 3-pointers 30 seconds apart early in the fourth quarter to put the Bucks ahead for good.
The second of those 3-pointers was his 1,051st as a Buck to match Ray Allen for first place on the team’s all-time list.
LeBron James missed an eighth straight game for the Lakers due to an abdominal strain.
