The Milwaukee Bucks make it four wins in a row after taking care of the Detroit Pistons 121-98 at Fiserv Forum.

Brook Lopez led the way with 25 points, lighting up from the three-point line, connecting on 7-of-12 attempts, while Khris Middleton added 22 points and Eric Bledsoe 18.

Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded just 15 points on the night, but he most certainly had the play of the game, with his ferocious dunk of the year contender.

The Greek Freak blew by Andre Drummond late in the first quarter and booked a one-way flight to the rim, throwing it down on Jon Leuer.

Milwaukee have now won eight of their past nine and sit atop the Eastern Conference with a league-best 26-10 record.

The Bucks were in control of this game from the jump, thanks to a sizzling first quarter, hitting 15 of their 20 shots to take a 35-27 lead after one, with Lopez drilling 3-of-3 from beyond the arc.

It was much of the same in the second as the lead got out to 21 points, with the Bucks stretching their advantage to 28 in the fourth quarter as they feasted inside, despite the presence of Drummond and Griffin. Milwaukee outscored Detroit 66-34 in the paint, with Bledsoe, Middleton and Antetokounmpo all in attack mode.

Griffin led the way for the Pistons with 29 points and nine rebounds, while Reggie Jackson added 19 points as they fell to 16-19 on the season.
