Warriors’ Jonathan Kuminga scores career-high 28 points in loss vs. Bucks

With Stephen Curry getting the night off, the Golden State Warriors needed someone to step up on Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. Jonathan Kuminga answered the bell for the Warriors in Milwaukee.

Although it wasn’t enough to seal a shorthanded victory against Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kuminga tallied a new career-high with 28-points on 10-of-18 shooting from the field with three rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.
