CHICAGO (AP) – Grayson Allen once again responded to the beeps of fans and even his teammates by making a shot-after shot.

By the time he finished, he had scored the most points in the postseason game. And the Milwaukee Bucks left with another one-sided victory.

Allen set a career high, scoring 27 points and six three-pointers, Janice Atetokunmpa scored 32 points and 17 rebounds, and the Milwaukee won the Chicago Bulls 119-95 on Sunday and led 3- 1 in his first round series.

Jru Holliday scored 26, and reigning champion Bucks got another easy win after two shaky games at home.

In the last two games, they outscored the Bulls by 54 points. This includes Friday 111-81, which was the most one-sided defeat in the playoffs in the history of the franchise.

At the beginning of the third quarter, the Bucks led by 22 and strengthened after the Chicago push. The reigning NBA champions will try to complete the series in Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

Allen made another huge shot from the bench, surpassing his previous post-season result, scoring 22 points in the 3rd game. He made 10 of 12 shots and 6 of 7 3 shots, almost constantly getting whistles again.

Allen, in his first season in Milwaukee, has the image of a bad boy since the days of Duke. He is especially unpopular in Chicago, where fans are upset by a brutal foul that led to a broken wrist by Bulls guard Alex Caruso during a game in Milwaukee in January.

Since then, teammates have started having fun with whistles, allowing him to hear it at training sessions and film sessions, on the bus and at the hotel. And now they do it in games.

“They’re so much fun,” Allen said, laughing. “I think it’s funny. I think it’s, frankly, fun. They’ve turned it into a fun thing. It also makes hearing it during the game a lot easier because they think it’s so funny.”

Allen is 18 out of 24 off the field and 11 for 14 on three-pointers in the last two games. Since Chris Middleton was expected to miss the rest of the series after a sprained left knee in Game 2, Bucks needed that.

“He played well here in Chicago,” coach Mike Budenholzer said. “I think it’s his best basketball. I think it’s just a competitor in it, a fight in it. It’s always there, but maybe it gets a little stronger when we’re here.”

Odtetokunmpa had seven assists. Rest made five 3s.

Bobby Portis added 14 points and 10 rebounds in his second opening game in a row with the release of Middleton, and the Bucks beat the Bulls for the 19th time in 21 games.

Zach LaVine led Chicago with 24 points and 13 assists, Demar Derozan scored 23, and Patrick Williams finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

“There were times when we made a very, very good effort and they still scored,” Bulls coach Billy Donavan said. “I think there were times when we moved the ball and created pretty good views for each other and the ball didn’t get in the basket. I think it goes down. And you could feel it a little bit.”
