THE MILWAUKEE Bucks scored 49 points in the first quarter and reached a season- high in points while overwhelming the host Detroit Pistons 150-130 on Monday night.

Brook Lopez had 21 points, Bobby Portis logged 18 points and 10 rebounds, Jevon Carter also scored 18 points and Jrue Holiday contributed 16 points and seven assists for the Bucks, who won for the third time in four games.

Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton, who hadn’t played since Dec. 15 due to right knee soreness, added eight points and four assists in 15 minutes.

The Bucks have won 16 of the past 17 regular-season meetings with Detroit, dating back to the 2018-19 season.

Bojan Bogdanovic led the Pistons with 33 points. Rookie Jalen Duren supplied a career-best 23 points and 15 rebounds, and Saddiq Bey had 21 points.

Pistons starters Killian Hayes and Isaiah Stewart missed the game due to shoulder injuries.

The Bucks shot 18 of 24 from the field in the first 12 minutes, including 7 of 12 from 3-point range, and recorded 12 assists. Mr. Antetokounmpo made all six of his field-goal attempts and went 6-for-7 from the foul line in the opening period.

He reached the 20-point mark with a pullup 3-pointer with 3:56 left in the quarter to give Milwaukee a 40-12 lead.

The Bucks’ lead was 25 points entering the second quarter. The advantage grew past 30 points when Joe Ingles knocked down a 3-pointer midway through the period, making it 68-37.
