Bucks pull to .500 with 85-78 win over Thunder
OJ Mayo and Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 19 and 14 points, respectively, off the bench to help lead the Milwaukee Bucks to an 85-78 win Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The win evens the Bucks record at 4-4 and gives them two wins in a row for the first time since the 2012-13 season. The Bucks did not have consecutive wins last season under Larry Drew.
The Bucks trailed by 10 points in the second quarter, but rallied back behind Antetokounmpo and Brandon Knight, who scored the team's first seven points of the third quarter. The Thunder were without their two best players, injured stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
The Bucks head to Orlando and Miami before coming back to the BMO Harris Bradley Center next Tuesday to face the New York Knicks.
