Bucks up­set the War­riors

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

STEPHEN Curry strained his ad­duc­tor mus­cle as NBA cham­pi­ons Golden State suf­fered a 134-111 loss to the Mil­wau­kee Bucks that snapped their eight-game win­ning streak.

The War­riors were al­ready miss­ing All-Star Dray­mond Green and then lost Curry mid­way through the third term.

Eric Bled­soe scored seven straight points dur­ing Mil­wau­kee’s big third quar­ter and fin­ished with 26.

Gian­nis An­te­tok­oun­mpo added 24 points, nine re­bounds and four as­sists as the Bucks handed the War­riors their first de­feat at home this sea­son.

In Phoenix, Kyrie Irv­ing scored 18 of his sea­son-high 39 points in the fourth quar­ter and over­time, as Bos­ton Celtics ral­lied from a 22-point deficit for a 116-109 win over the Suns.

Irv­ing scored Bos­ton’s first six points in the ex­tra pe­riod, and Mar­cus Mor­ris fin­ished with 17 against his for­mer team — in­clud­ing the ty­ing three-pointer with 1.1 sec­onds left in reg­u­la­tion off a pass from Irv­ing.
