BROOKLYN -- The Bucks, behind a near triple double from Giannis Antetokounmpo and smothering team defense, shut down the up-and-coming Nets 113-94. The Bucks held the Nets to 5-42 from deep, and forced 13 turnovers en route to holding the Nets to 32 percent shooting on the night. Giannis Antetokounmpo finished the game with 30 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and three blocks.


The Bucks ended their five game road trip 4-1, and will return to the Fiserv Forum Wednesday night when the Wizards will be in town, 7 pm tip.
