Antetokounmpo leads Bucks over Jazz

(TSX / STATS) -- MILWAUKEE -- For the second straight night, the Milwaukee Bucks faced off against an opponent that had embarrassed them two weeks earlier, and for the second straight night it looked as if the Bucks just might have learned a thing or two from their previous mistakes.

In their last meeting with the Utah Jazz, the Bucks allowed the 18 3-pointers in a 13-point loss in Salt Lake City, but Milwaukee rectified that issue Saturday night, holding Utah to 8-of-23 shooting from distance and a 43.4 percentage overall in a 117-100 victory at the Bradley Center.

"We learned in Utah how much that can hurt us," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. "So when you look at the last two games in the last 24 hours, Dallas and Utah were the two teams that really hurt us with the 3 and we took that shot away tonight. That gave ourselves a chance to win."
