Antetokounmpo, Terry lead Bucks over Magic

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points and Jason Terry came off the bench to score 11 points in the second half in the Milwaukee Bucks’ 111-104 victory over the Orlando Magic on Saturday night.

A couple of 3-pointers by the 40-year-old Terry put the Bucks ahead to stay late in the third quarter, although the game stayed close until Antetokounmpo’s three-point play made it 107-100 with 45.7 seconds left. Milwaukee stayed ahead by hitting 13 of 20 shots in the fourth quarter, winning for the eighth time in 10 games.

Mario Hezonja led Orlando with 23 points. Evan Fournier added 20, and Shelvin Mack had 19.

Khris Middleton had 21 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for Milwaukee.

The Bucks (31-24) won for the sixth straight time in the second game of a back-to-back.

The Magic missed 14 straight 3-point shots and saw their three-game winning streak broken.

Mack made all six of his shots in the first half, including a couple of 3-pointers, in leading Orlando to a 54-50 halftime lead.

Hezonja scored nine of Orlando’s first 11 points, and a couple of free throws by D.J. Augustin with 3:31 left in the second quarter gave the Magic a nine-point lead, the biggest for either team until the Bucks matched it in the fourth quarter.
