Bucks come up short in valiant effort in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS - It wasn't supposed to be close. The NBA-worst Bucks weren't supposed to stand a chance at East-leading Indiana Thursday night.

The outcome went as expected, but it was a lot closer than many anticipated.

Brandon Knight scored 23 points and Khris Middleton added 22 as the Bucks lost to the Packers 101-96 Thursday night.

Middleton gave the Bucks a six point lead early in the third quarter, but the Pacers seized control from there behind Roy Hibbert's 24 points and 12 rebounds.

The Bucks fall to 11-46 with the loss.
