Eric Bledsoe scored 12 points in a 19-0 run, and D.J. Wilson added some sparkling defense as the Milwaukee Bucks took a 91-73 lead into the fourth quarter over the Memphis Grizzlies.
After a 7-2 run gave the Grizzlies a 59-58 lead, Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer took a timeout and inserted Wilson into the lineup for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had picked up his fourth foul.
Out of the timeout, Bledsoe scored the game’s next nine points, and the Bucks were off and running. Sterling Brown added two baskets and Khris Middleton dunked before Bledsoe capped the run with a 3-pointer.
The lead reached 91-68 before the Grizzlies scored the last five points of the quarter.
