After Bledsoe's three-point play, Malcolm Brogdon expanded Milwaukee's lead with two free throws with 1:54 to play and a 3-pointer 13 seconds later, and the Bucks held on from there. 'We compete for something bigger than ourselves.

Seven Bucks scored in double figures in a balanced attack, with Brogdon (21 points), Khris Middleton (18), Ersan Ilyasova (12), Brook Lopez (11) and Nikola Mirotic (11) joining Bledsoe and Antetokounmpo in that category. Fresh off the heels of his new contract extension, Bledsoe was crucial in helping the Bucks to pull away late down the stretch and left Bucks fans feeling satisfied with their new long-term investment. 'We've worked hard for it, we've played every game, go out there, show up every game, try to win every game'.

Milwaukee Bucks: 3 things to watch for on the road to Los Angeles Lakers (read here): Before Friday night's game, Adam McGee previewed the Bucks' meeting with the LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers.

The 38-year-old said he failed to emphasise to his players that they needed to inbound the ball cleanly from the baseline, which resulted in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope turning the ball over before it got to James.

He scored 31 points and had 10 assists on Friday night but it was not enough to prevent the Lakers losing for the third time in four games. Rondo added 20 points.

The Bucks dominated the rest of the game.

The 7-footer helped the Lakers win titles in 2009 and 2010.

Outside of Ingram and LeBron, the remaining Lakers were mostly inefficient shooting from the field despite posting a robust 120 points.

The Lakers outscored the Bucks 15-9, with six by Kyle Kuzma, to end the first half leading 65-59.
