Middleton, Henson lead Bucks to 89-81 win over Nuggets

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Khris Middleton scored 15 points, John Henson added 14 and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Denver Nuggets 89-81 on Friday night in their first game since tweaking their roster at the NBA trade deadline.

The athletic Henson had four buckets during a 20-7 run over the last 7 minutes of the third quarter to help put Milwaukee ahead for good after trailing the entire first half.

Denver stayed within a possession or two for much of the fourth quarter, but went 1 of 5 from the field with a turnover over the last 3:26.

Wilson Chandler led Denver with 19 points.

Michael Carter-Williams, who was acquired from Philadelphia as part of a three-team deal that sent Brandon Knight to Phoenix, did not play because of a sprained right big toe.
