The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Sports -

Mil­wau­kee Bucks guard Eric Bled­soe re­port­edly re­ceived a $ 70 mil­lion, four-year ex­ten­sion on Fri­day, the same day Bled­soe score 31 points in Mil­wau­kee’s 131-120 win over the host Lost An­ge­les Lak­ers.

“We’ve got a tal­ented young team, we’re grow­ing to­gether,” said Bled­soe. “We com­pete for some­thing big­ger than our­selves. I just wanted to be part of it.”

The Bucks won their eighth in a row — fourth straight against the Lak­ers — and 10th con­sec­u­tive game on the road.

Mil­wau­kee’s Gian­nis An­te­tok­oun­mpo played 32 min­utes with­out restric­tion af­ter sit­ting out with right knee sore­ness this past Mon­day at Chicago and be­ing lim­ited to 24 min­utes on Wed­nes­day at Sacra­mento.
