Brook Lopez made a 3-pointer to open the third quarter and the lid appeared to magically come off the basket for the Milwaukee Bucks.
From there, Eric Bledsoe, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton did most of the damage as the Bucks outscored the Chicago Bulls, 46-17, in the third quarter to take an 91-80 lead into the fourth quarter.
The Bulls could do no wrong in the first 24 minutes, but shots that swished through in the first half clanged off the iron in the third period. After going 11 for 17 on 3-pointers in the first half, the Bulls went 1 for 10 in the third.
The Bucks, meanwhile, went 16 of 24 from the field. Bledsoe’s 3-pointer at the buzzer capped the Bucks’ biggest quarter of the season.
