MILWAUKEE - You almost had to squint to make sure you weren't seeing things.
In a stunning turn, the Milwaukee Bucks frittered away a lead that got as high as 14 points in the third quarter to lose going away to the Indiana Pacers Thursday night at Fiserv Forum 139-123.
After leading comfortably for the first 30 minutes, a barrage of hot shooting by the plucky Pacers gave the Fiserv crowd a very rare sight: the home team blown out on their floor.
The Indiana Pacers shot 55% from the field and 46% from three to improve to 32-38 on the season. The Bucks fell to 50-20 overall.
The Pacers had 8 players reach double figures led by Andrew Nembhard's 24. The Bucks were led by Giannis Antetokoumpo who tallied 25 points and 9 rebounds on a night that saw him battle foul trouble.
The Bucks return to their home court Sunday to take on the Toronto Raptors.
