Bucks find form to down Pacers

The Milwaukee Bucks finally found their rhythm in the new NBA regular season when they thrashed the Indian Pacers on matchday five.

Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo shined for the hosts and scored 27 points each to help prevent the Pacers from notching up their first road win of the new campaign at the Bradley Center.

Jeff Teague helped give the Pacers a promising start, but the side struggled defensively against a well-organized Bucks team.

Antetokounmpo and Parker were by far the stand out players for the Bucks.

21-year old Greek, Antetokounmpo, continued his stellar form adding nine assists and seven rebounds to his 27 points while power forward Parker hit a career-high 4 of 6 three-point attempts.

Greg Monroe chipped in with 16 points and 16 rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench as the Bucks cruised to a 125 – 107 victory.

With 23 points Paul George led Indiana, who are now on two wins and three defeats while the Bucks are on three and two.
