The Portland Trail Blazers came out hot from the 3-point line, but the Bucks have nearly matched them.
The Blazers made 7 of 14 triples, while the Bucks have made 6 of 12. The opening minute brought back memories of last Thursday when the Boston Celtics buried a team-record 24 threes in the Bucks’ only loss thus far.
Khris Middleton made a pair of threes but went to the bench with his second foul in the early going.
A pair of free throws by Zach Collins with 0.9 second left gave the Blazers a 33-31 lead after one.
Brook Lopez leads the Buck with 10 points, including two threes.
