Antetokounmpo leads Bucks past Bulls 133-129 in OT

AP – Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 133-129 victory over the Chicago Bulls in overtime yesterday.

“The Bulls played a terrific game,” Bucks coach Adrian Griffin said.

“Every time we thought we had them down, they kind of fought and clawed back in the game. But when we need to get stops, we get stops. I thought that was encouraging.”

DeMar DeRozan forced overtime, dropping in a floater from the lane with four seconds left in regulation to tie it at 118.

Antetokounmpo hit two free throws to put the Bucks up 117-112 with 1:11 to go. Patrick Williams answered with a dunk and DeRozan hit a pair of free throws to pull the Bulls to 117-116.
