Eric Bledsoe has spent much of the first half waltzing down the lane, and his 18 points and four assists have helped the Milwaukee Bucks take a 52-41 lead over the Detroit Pistons at the half.
Bledsoe has completely broken down Pistons guards Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith off the dribble. When he wasn’t making layups, Bledsoe was going to the line (5 for 5) or dishing out assists. Near the end of the half he fed Thon Maker for a fast-break dunk and then drove the lane and fed Maker for a wide-open 3-pointer.
Maker and Malcolm Brogdon have nine points each for the Bucks.
Blake Griffin leads the Pistons with 22 points, but no other Detroit player has more than six points.
The Pistons are shooting just 40.4% (20 of 49) from the floor and just 22.2% (4 for 18) on 3-pointers.
