Antetokounmpo scores 30 points, Bucks beat Celtics 98-97

MILWAUKEE (AP) Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks shook off any All-Star break hangover in a hurry.

Antetokounmpo scored 12 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, Khris Middleton hit a 3-pointer in the closing seconds and the NBA-leading Bucks held off the Boston Celtics 98-97 on Thursday night.

On the second-to-last position, Marcus Smart forced a jump ball with Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo tipped the jump to Brook Lopez, who deflected it toward the basket, but missed as the shot clock expired.
