Bucks outlast Clippers for signature win


In what might be described as their most impressive win of the season, the Milwaukee Bucks rallied for a five point win over the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday at Fiserv Forum, 105-100.

Two-time defending NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 36 points and 14 rebounds while teammate Khris Middleton chipped in 19 points.

This was a close game throughout, with Los Angeles leading by five at 98-93 following a Marcus Morris Sr. three pointer with 4:33 left. From there, Milwaukee's defense held the Clippers to just two points the rest of the way.

After losing five straight, Milwaukee (21-13) has now won five consecutive games. Los Angeles (24-11) now trails Utah by 3.5 games for the top spot in the Western Conference.

The Bucks are next in action Tuesday night versus Denver (18-15) at Fiserv Forum.
