BROOK Lopez sustained his fine form ahead of the NBA restart, lifting the Milwaukee Bucks past the Sacramento Kings in an NBA tuneup match on Saturday in Florida (Sunday, Manila time).
The Bucks ‘stretch 5’ had 21 points and five blocks as the Bucks made it two wins in as many exhibition matches ahead of the NBA restart, notching a 131-123 victory over the Kings.
It was another fine performance for Lopez, who scored 17 in the first tuneup match against the San Antonio Spurs.
The seven-footer drained four shots out of six attempts from beyond the arc.
Kyle Korver had 22 points, going 5 for 8 from deep, while Donte DiVincenzo scored 13.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton set the pace for the league-leading Bucks, scoring 15 and 11, respectively, before sitting out the second half.
The Kings were led by Buddy Hield, who went 8 for 18 off the bench.
