Not needing their “Let It Fly” offense, the Milwaukee Bucks have been waltzing down the lane all night and have built a 26-point lead over the Golden State Warriors through three quarters in Oakland.
Even with Giannis Antetokounmpo on the bench, the Bucks dominated. Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon and John Henson led a defense that kept getting Milwaukee into the open court. Bledsoe, coming off a 2-for-12 night, had 10 points in the quarter. Henson had a rebound slam and an alley-oop slam.
The lead reached 96-69 with 3;41 on a Khris Middleton 3-point play. That capped a 32-13 run.
Golden State star Steph Curry picked up his fourth foul and headed to the locker room midway though the third, with an adductor muscle injury. The Warriors started the night without Draymond Green, who has a toe injury.
Antetokounmpo picked up his fifth foul of the night on an offensive foul in the last minute of the quarter. He went to the bench with 24 points and 9 rebounds.
