The Nation - - SPORT -

The Mil­wau­kee Bucks made a state­ment on Fri­day (Thai­land time) with a 134-111 vic­tory over the Golden State War­riors, snap­ping the two-time de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons’ eight-game NBA win­ning streak.

The ever-im­prov­ing Bucks im­posed their will on a War­riors team that was with­out in­jured Dray­mond Green and lost Stephen Curry to a left ad­duc­tor strain in the third quar­ter.

Mil­wau­kee’s Eric Bled­soe led all scor­ers with 26 points, 10 of them in the Bucks’ 41-point third quar­ter.

Paul Ge­orge scored 20 points to lead the Ok­la­homa City Thun­der to a sev­enth straight vic­tory, a dom­i­nant 98-80 home tri­umph over the Hous­ton Rock­ets.

In Phoenix, the Bos­ton Celtics ral­lied from a 22-point third-quar­ter deficit to hand the Suns a heart­break­ing 116-109 over­time de­feat.

The Suns, mean­while, have lost nine of 10 in a dis­as­trous start to the sea­son.
