The Milwaukee Bucks have just set a new franchise record for points scored in the first half with 88, topping the previous record of 85 against the Washington Wizards in Milwaukee last February. It’s just the 8th time in NBA regular-season history that a team has scored 88+ points in the first half. This record was achieved without Giannis.

Khris Middleton made a career-high 51 points, to go along with ten rebounds, six assists, and the Bucks won their 9th in a row. Milwaukee Bucks 151-131 Washington Wizards. Middleton is the third Bucks player to score 50 or more points. Besides him, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did this.
