NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at New Orleans Pelicans Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Bucks earned their 24th road win of the season with a 130-113 victory over the Pelicans.

The Bucks finished with six players scoring in double-figures in the balanced effort tonight. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 24 points, nine rebounds and five assists. Milwaukee shot 29.5 percent from the floor despite going only 27.8 percent from deep.

The Pelicans also had seven players in double-figures, but weren’t able to stay afloat once Anthony Davis was benched before the end of the third. He played only 21 minutes versus the Bucks. Julius Randle scored 23 points to lead the Pels.

Stat That Stood Out: 45

The Milwaukee Bucks missed a lot of bunnies in the first half, but were able to extend their lead with a 45 point third quarter.
