A 35 point second quarter for the Milwaukee Bucks put plenty of distance between them in the Chicago Bulls in their 126-96 win on Friday night.
Less than a week after setting a record for hitting 29 three-point shots, it hit 22 three-pointers against the Bulls coming off their first win of the season. Five Bucks players hit at least three three-pointers in the win. Leading the Bulls 27-21, the Bucks outscored their visitors 35-19 in the second quarter to put the game well out of reach. Giannis Anetokounmpo led all scorers with 29 points and tied for the team lead with 12 rebounds. Six other Bucks players scored in double figures. Zach Lavine led the Bulls with 16 points. The Bulls were down four players due to COVID-19 protocols. It was the 11th straight win for the Bucks over the Bulls, which is the second-longest winning streak in the rivalry's history.
The Bucks are next in action on Monday when they play Detroit.
