The beat goes on for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Saturday night in Washington, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s triple-double (33 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists) propelled Milwaukee past the Wizards, 125-119, but again it was balanced scoring that told the real story.
Including Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday (18), Khris Middleton (16), Bobby Portis (14), Brook Lopez (11), Pat Connaughton (11), Donte DiVincenzo (10), and Bryn Forbes (10) all reached double digits in the scorebook for the Bucks eighth win in their last nine games.
Following play on Saturday, Milwaukee (24-14) is now two games behind Philadelphia for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. They will remain in D.C. for one more game with the Wizards Monday night.
