NEW YORK (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 31 points in his return from a one-game absence, Khris Middleton added 15 of his 20 in the third quarter and the Milwaukee Bucks blew out the Brooklyn Nets 121-109.

Bobby Portis scored 20 of his 25 in the first half to help the Bucks snap a two-game skid.

The last loss came without Antetokounmpo, who didn’t play Wednesday against Toronto because of an illness unrelated to COVID-19.

Kevin Durant had 29 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Nets, who have lost five straight home games.
