Bucks 119, Cavaliers 110: Surviving a comeback scare


The Milwaukee Bucks spent most of their day on Thanksgiving at home, enjoying a traditional holiday meal with their families before heading to Cleveland in the evening.


Middleton missed a 15-footer in the lane, but a scrum for a loose rebound ended with Nance saving the ball from going out of bounds -- throwing it right to Bucks guard Pat Connaughton.


Antetokounmpo then missed what would have been a dagger three -- the Bucks were 12 of 34 from deep -- but Donte DiVincenzo was there to corral the offensive rebound forcing the Cavaliers to foul with the clock under 15 seconds.


Hill finished with 18 points and four assists in 22 minutes, including a critical eight-point scoring stretch that helped keep the Bucks afloat during the Cavaliers' three-point-heavy 42-point quarter.


Middleton, playing in his second game since missing seven in a row with a left thigh contusion, logged 23 minutes, scoring 12 points and dishing out five assists.


Brown sprained the AC joint in his right shoulder on Wednesday at Fiserv Forum when he collided with Atlanta Hawks rookie De'Andre Hunter late in the first quarter.
