The Milwaukee Bucks survive a 43 point fourth quarter rally by Brooklyn to beat the Nets 129-125.
Giannis Antetokounmpo poured in 33 points to lead. Greg Monroe chipped in 25 points on 12 of 16 shooting, and Khris Middleton capped his 20-point performance by hitting four free throws in the final 19 seconds of the Bucks' third straight win. The Bucks enter their six day All Star break five games below .500 but still in playoff contention
The Bucks say forward Jabari Parker underwent successful knee surgery and is expected back in approximately 12 months. Parker suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during a loss to Miami last week. He tore the same ligament in 2014. Parker was averaging a career-high 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds as one of the Bucks' franchise cornerstones and the team's second-leading scorer.
