Lopez makes eight 3-pointers, Bucks beat Nuggets 121-114

DENVER (AP) Brook Lopez always drew attention in the paint. Now, the Milwaukee Bucks' 7-footer is starting to draw a defensive crowd the moment he crosses the half-court line because of his 3-point shooting.

Lopez had a career-high eight 3-pointers and 28 points to help the Milwaukee Bucks snap an eight-game skid in Denver, beating the Nuggets 121-114 on Sunday night.

"That was an interesting experience," Lopez said after the Nuggets began face-guarding him at half court later in the game in a bid to slow down his perimeter shooting. "I'm just super proud of our team, especially after the Clippers game (a 128-126 overtime loss Saturday on a last-second Los Angeles basket). I think we all feel we let that one get away. To see the way we committed on the defensive end, especially after they made that run to start the fourth. That was so big and I think definitely shows what we're capable of because that's a great team that we just beat."
