Bucks advance in NBA Playoffs, defeat Magic 118-104 Saturday


Milwaukee is advancing in the NBA Playoffs.

With Saturday's 118-104 win over the Orlando Magic, the Milwaukee Bucks won their NBA Playoff series four games to one, and will face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals beginning Monday night.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton combined for 49 points and 17 rebounds in the victory, the Bucks' fourth in a row, and their first since starting a league-wide strike that postponed six NBA Playoff games.

Defensively, the Bucks held the Magic under 40% shooting. Milwaukee held a 17-point advantage at halftime in the decisive Game Five.
