A red-hot C-J McCollum connected on 17-of-26 shots in a 40-point explosion as Portland defeated the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night 118-103. It was only the second loss in 10 games for the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo topped Milwaukee with 23 points and Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez each had 22. McCollum scored nearly half of his points — 19 — in the third period. The Bucks remain on the West Coast to play at Golden State Thursday.
