Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way as he recorded a 31-point, 10-rebound and 10-assist triple-double.

The Bucks took control of the contest early and scorched the Nets from beyond the arc as they hit a near franchise-record 21 three-pointers, just one behind their all-time best.

Along with Giannis' overall dominance, the Bucks received huge contributions from Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez. Middleton finished the night with 29 points, four rebounds and seven assists while Lopez drilled seven threes and tallied 24 points.

The win pushes the Bucks record in 2018-19 to 25-10 and places them atop the Eastern Conference, ahead of the Toronto Raptors.

Sure Not Now

Brooklyn's starters failed to fire, as it was their bench unit who came through in a big way.

Shabazz Napier was the star on the day as he scored a game-high 32 points on 9-for-15 shooting from the field. Kenneth Faried posted a double-double off the bench as he registered 21 points and 10 rebounds.

The loss pushes the Nets' record to 17-21 on the season which places them just outside of the top eight in the East.

Milwaukee remains at home and will welcome Detroit for a game on Jan. 1, while the Nets return home for a meeting with the Pelicans on Jan. 2.
