DETROIT (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 22 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks easily beat the Detroit Pistons for the third time this month, 110-101.
The Bucks built a commanding early lead with a barrage of 3-pointers.
Brook Lopez connected three times from beyond the arc in the first quarter, when the Bucks were 7 of 11 from long distance.
Detroit was just 4 of 20 overall in the period and trailed 27-13 after one.
At one point, Milwaukee led 52-29.
The Pistons cut the deficit to 11 at halftime but never seemed like a serious threat to overtake Milwaukee.
Jerami Grant led Detroit with 22 points.
