It wasn’t easy on the road against a poor Charlotte team Friday night but the Milwaukee Bucks became the first NBA team this season to get to 40 wins. They won 116-103 with that entire margin coming in the fourth quarter. Milwaukee rose to the occasion in crunch time, putting up 38 points in the final stanza.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with 30 points and 16 rebounds in only 32 minutes. Eric Bledsoe raised eyebrows with 20 points of his own. Milwaukee’s next game is Tuesday against Washington.
