Giannis gets triple-double, Bucks outlast Rockets 128-121

Posted:


   
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded his second career triple-double with 18 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks outlasted the Houston Rockets for a 128-121 win on Monday night.
   
Jabari Parker scored a career-high 36 points for Milwaukee, and Khris Middleton had 30 points.
   
The Bucks led 125-112 with 2:29 to go, but the Rockets responded with a 9-0 run. After forcing a turnover, Houston's Trevor Ariza was whistled for a 5-second violation on in-bounds pass with 20 seconds remaining.
   
It was a wild ending to a run and gun-style game that otherwise featured alley-oop dunks, deep 3s and little defense.
   
Dwight Howard had 30 points and 13 rebounds for Houston, while Ariza had 20 points and 11 assists.
