Bucks fall to Nuggets 127-115 Friday


The Milwaukee Bucks shot just 30% from deep in a 127-115 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.

Denver blasted the Bucks out of the locker room, earning a 40-24 third-quarter advantage. That offensive explosion ended up being much of the difference in the Nuggets' win Friday night.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, who left the game late with cramps, scored 31 points for the short-handed Bucks, who were missing George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo.

Khris Middleton tossed in 24 points and Eric Bledsoe added 15 in the loss.

All nine of the Denver Nuggets who played scored in double figures.
