The Milwaukee Bucks blew past the Brooklyn Nets 131-121 in their matchup Monday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 28 points and secured 11 rebounds for the Bucks in his return to the lineup after being injured. Eric Bledsoe chipped in 29 points of his own as he really set the tone in the first half.
Reserve guard George Hill came off the bench and provided a spark for the team as he scored 22 points in the contest. The Nets cut the lead down to four halfway through the fourth before the Bucks went on a 7-0 run to help eventually close out the game.
Milwaukee will now have a couple of days of rest before they travel to Philadelphia for their matchup with the 76ers Thursday night. The Bucks are now closing in on the best overall record in the NBA and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.
