Bucks stay perfect in preseason, defeat Mavericks 118-111

Milwaukee improved to 3-0 in the preseason, taking down Dallas 118-111 with a big night from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who matched his jersey number with 34 points in the victory.

Giannis also pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds in just 23 minutes of action.

Ersan Ilyasova scored 18 points while Dragan Bender added 17 for the Bucks, who are without Eric Bledsoe for a couple of weeks due to torn rib cartilage.

After a Sunday match-up with Washington, the Bucks will wrap up the preseason with Minnesota on Thursday. Milwaukee's regular-season opener is October 24 at Houston.
