MILWAUKEE – Giannis Antetokounmpo had 38 points and 16 rebounds, Eric Bledsoe added a season-high 31 points and eight assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks withstood another historic effort by Chicago rookie Coby White to beat the Bulls, 124-115, on Thursday night.

White shot 5 of 8 from 3-point range in the first half, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to hit five 3-pointers in consecutive games. The 19-year-old seventh overall pick in the 2019 draft set an NBA rookie record Tuesday night, making seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter of a 120-102 victory over the New York Knicks. White finished Thursday with a team-high 26 points, including six 3s.

Antetokounmpo had at least 30-plus points for the seventh game this season for the Bucks, who played without Khris Middleton. The All-Star forward is expected to miss the next three to four weeks with a thigh bruise.

Donte DiVincenzo, who made his first career start in place of Middleton, had four points and four rebounds.

Zach LaVine added 25 points and seven assists before fouling out for the Bulls.

TIP-INS

Bulls: The Bulls now have lost seven straight to Milwaukee dating to 2017.

Bucks: Center Robin Lopez finished with six points and three rebounds. Lopez spent the previous three seasons with the Bulls, averaging 10.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 blocks in 219 games.

“RoLo is a hyper-competitive dude,” Bulls coach Jim Boylen said. “He likes to win. He likes to win a practice game. He likes to win a 1-on-1 game, a shooting game. I like that competitive spirit that he has.”
