Bucks clinch playoff spot with blowout win over Nets

The only revenge Jason Kidd needed Sunday against his former team was a playoff clincher for his current team.

Ersan Ilyasova scored 21 and Khris Middleton added 16 as the Bucks blew out Kidd's former team the Nets 96-73 to clinch a playoff spot, just one year after going 15-67.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continued to play well after sitting out Wednesday's game, putting up 13 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists to help Milwaukee get to 40 wins on the season.

O.J. Mayo scored 17 in 20 minutes off the bench as the Bucks outscored Brooklyn 30-18 in the third quarter.
