Clutch three-pointer in final few seconds lifts Bucks over Chicago

By Connor Harbit


It wasn’t as pretty as Milwaukee fans would have liked, but the Bucks sent them home happy anyway with a 116-113 win over the Chicago Bulls. The game was deadlocked for much of the first half, with Chicago leading by 10 after the first quarter thanks to some early turnovers. That lead would evaporate in the second quarter, however, as it did not take long for the Bucks to bounce back and take a 63-62 lead into the half. The second half wasn’t much different in regards to keeping things close, as Milwaukee was only able to extend its lead two more points in the third quarter. After a fourth quarter in which it seemed that both teams would always have an answer for the other, Milwaukee forward Khris Middleton nailed a three-pointer with just five seconds remaining to take home the victory.


The Bucks (15-6) were led by Giannis Antetokoumpo with 36 points and Malcolm Brogdon had 24. Chicago guard Zach LaVine led the Bulls (5-17) with 24 points of his own. Milwaukee will next take a couple days off before heading east for a meeting with the New York Knicks.
