Late run gives Lakers 65-59 lead over Bucks at half

Brandon Ingram made all eight shots he took for 16 points, as the Los Angeles Lakers used a late run to take a 65-59 lead over the Milwaukee Bucks at the half Friday night at Staples Center.

The Bucks, riding their third six-game winning streak in six weeks, held a 57-52 lead on two Giannis Antetokounmpo free throws before the Lakers closed the half with a 13-2 run.

Milwaukee is struggling from behind the arc, making just 7 of 24 (29.2%), including 0-for-4 efforts from Eric Bledsoe and Tony Snell.

Rajon Rondo has 11 points for the Lakers. Rondo missed five 3-pointers in the first four minutes before finally making one. He ended the half with 11 points, including 3-of-10 shooting on 3-pointers. LeBron James scored 10 and has dished out seven assists. The Lakers are shooting 52.8% (28 for 53).

Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and Bledsoe have 11 points each for the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo has a relatively quiet eight points, but has grabbed a game-best 10 rebounds.

Bledsoe reportedly agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $70 million earlier in the day. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
