The same big lineup that started the game on a 20-6 run, opened the third quarter on another 20-6 run, and the Milwaukee Bucks will take a 78-73 lead into the fourth quarter over the Utah Jazz.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 15 points in the period, and Brook Lopez dropped in two more 3-pointers, as the Bucks turned a 53-46 halftime deficit into a five-point advantage.
Khris Middleton has 21 points and Lopez 16 for the Bucks, who are playing without starting guards Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon. Nikola Mirotic and Ersan Ilyasova, both 6-10, started in place of the guards, with Middleton and Antetokounmpo moving from forward to guard in the big lineup.
Donovan Mitchell leads the Jazz with 27 points.
