Bledsoe led them with 30 points and Giannis had his second triple double of the season(24 pts, 19 rebs, 15 ast). Blazers without Lillard are not a threat for strong Bucks.

Carmelo scored 18 points in his second match this season.

Ingram is back from injury, allowed to play without restrictions, 28 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. JJ Reddick with 26 points and Holiday with 23 points and 9 assists secured their sixth win.
