MILWAUKEE shot the lights out from beyond the arc in the second half to pull away from Brooklyn, 111-93, as the Bucks won their third straight game on Thursday (Friday, Manila time) at the Barclays Center.

The Bucks knocked down nine of their 15 three-pointers after the break to turn a tight game against the Nets at halftime, 52-51, into a blowout midway through the third quarter.

New acquisition Tony Snell and rookie Malcolm Brogdon each dropped two treys as Milwaukee outscored Brooklyn, 38-27, in the third period. Then Mirza Teletovic added three more triples in the fourth to help the Bucks lead by as much as 22 points and kept the Nets out of reach the rest of the way.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had another stellar outing for Milwaukee with 23 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and four steals. Jabari Parker added 22 markers, while Snell and Brogdon scored 13 apiece as the Bucks improved to 9-8.

Brook Lopez led the Nets, who fell to 5-13, with 15 points. Sean Kilpatrick had 14 and Bojan Bogdanovic added 13.
