Kevin Durant was outstanding in the first half of Friday's game against the Bucks. Antentokounmpo matched up with Durant on most of the Warriors' possessions.

The Bucks have alternated wins and losses for the past seven games.

MILWAUKEE - Middleton 2-12 3-4 8, Antetokounmpo 10-19 3-3 23, Henson 2-6 2-2 6, Bledsoe 8-16 2-2 21, Brogdon 7-14 1-1 17, Snell 4-7 0-0 11, Maker 2-5 0-0 5, Dellavedova 0-4 0-0 0, Brown 1-2 0-0 3.

Durant might be one of the few scorers in the league who can still teach Antetokounmpo a few moves, like the fake Durant used to blow past the Bucks' star for an easy dunk.

With Stephen Curry out due to a right ankle injury, Golden State turned to Finals MVP Durant, and he delivered.

But Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday that Curry "did look good" as he participated in a full practice on Thursday. He was fantastic in the five games he played earlier this month before re-injuring the left ankle, averaging 35.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists and draining 33 of 62 three-point attempts. The Bucks are allowing foes to shoot 38 percent from 3-point range on the year.

Brogdon drew the assignment of guarding Thompson for much of the evening.

The men from Oakland will now head to Toronto to face a red-hot Raptors team in a marquee matchup on the second night of a back-to-back where they hope to welcome Curry back.
