Brogdon notches triple-double as Bucks beat Bulls by 20 in Chicago
CHICAGO - A new star could be blossoming for the Bucks.
Malcolm Brogdon notched his first career triple-double in just his second NBA start as Milwaukee beat Chicago 116-96 Saturday. It's the Bucks' third win over the Bulls this season.
Brogdon, who drew his first pro start Friday night in Minnesota, gave a gritty performance that was capped with his 10th assist with a minute and a half to play, cementing the triple-double. Brogdon's teammates celebrated on the bench as the rookie guard smiled on the court.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 35 points, while Jabari Parker added 27, but Brogdon stole the show and continued one of the best stories of the Bucks season. Brogdon had been impressive off the bench before assuming a starting role thanks to a Matthew Dellavedova injury.
Brogdon's impressive final line: 15 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists. Antetokounmpo filled up the stat sheet as well, with nine rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks to go with his team-high 35 points.
The Bucks host the Oklahoma City Thunder Monday.
