Bucks explode in win over Wizards

The Milwaukee Bucks put up 50 points in the first quarter en route to a 148-129 win over the Washington Wizards Wednesday night. The trade deadline dealt blows to both teams in terms of depth before the game. The Bucks traded Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons for Stanley Johnson while the Wizards dealt Otto Porter Jr. to the Chicago Bulls for Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis. The 50-point first quarter was one shy of an NBA record for scoring in an opening stanza while its 85 points in the first half was a franchise record. All five starters finished in double figures, lead by 43 points for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points and tallied 11 assists in the victory. The Bucks will play a remade Dallas Mavericks team Friday night.
