MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 33 points, Bobby Portis added 28 and the Milwaukee Bucks continued their dominance over the Detroit Pistons with a 114-93 win.

The victory was Milwaukee’s fifth in a row overall and its 12th straight over Detroit, dating to 2018.

That is tied for the third-longest current winning streak by one NBA team over another. Jrue Holiday had 22 points for the Bucks, who jumped out to a 14-0 lead and never trailed.

It was their second consecutive game with a fast start. In their previous game, the Bucks opened a 77-36 lead over Orlando, the biggest halftime lead in franchise history.
