Khris Middleton scored eight of his 20 points in a third-quarter surge that propelled the Milwaukee Bucks past the visiting Indiana Pacers 119-100 on Wednesday, March 4.

Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded game highs in points (29) and rebounds (12) for the Bucks, who bounced back from a 105-89 loss at Miami on Monday to capture the season series 3-1 from the Pacers.

T.J. Warren had a team-high 18 points for Indiana, which had a four-game winning streak snapped.

After a see-saw first half that saw the Bucks open the game on a 33-11 run, only to have the Pacers get within 58-56 at halftime, Milwaukee used a 26-9 third-quarter burst to turn a one-point game into a 89-71 lead.

Middleton had a pair of 3-pointers in the decisive burst, Antetokounmpo, Wes Matthews and Brook Lopez added one apiece, and Eric Bledsoe chipped in with three-point play in the run-away.

Matthews had two of his three 3-pointers in a 15-2 game-opening run that got the Bucks off and running. Antetokounmpo dropped in one of his two treys in that span.
