DETROIT (AP)– Giannis Antetokounmpo had 22 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks easily beat the Detroit Pistons for the 3rd time this month, 110-101 on Wednesday night.

The Bucks developed a commanding early lead with a barrage of 3-pointers. Brook Lopez linked 3 times from beyond the arc in the very first quarter, when the Bucks were 7 of 11 from far away. Detroit was simply 4 of 20 total in the duration and tracked 27-13 after one.

That pattern continued through much of the 2nd quarter. At one point, Milwaukee led 52-29 and had more 3-pointers (11) than Detroit had basket (9 ).

The Pistons cut the deficit to 11 at halftime but never ever appeared like a serious risk to overtake Milwaukee. Jerami Grant led Detroit with 22 points and Svi Mykhailiuk added 18.

It was the 20th career triple-double for Antetokounmpo. Jrue Vacation included 21 points for the Bucks.
