Bucks pick up first win; Parker set to return
The Bucks finally got their first win, and they got some news that should help them pick up more wins as the season unfolds.
Milwaukee got 26 points in 47 minutes from Jerryd Bayless and rallied to beat the Brooklyn Nets 103-96 Monday night at the Barclays Center.
Bayless was one of three Bucks players to score 20 or more points in this one; Greg Monroe added 23 points and 13 rebounds, while Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied 21 points.
After a Michael Carter-Williams steal with less than 2:00 to play, Khris Middleton buried a fallaway jumper to give the Bucks a 98-96 lead. The Nets would not score again, and the Bucks would walk away with their much-anticipated first win of the 2015-16 season.
Jabari Parker has been medically cleared to return for the Bucks next game Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center against the 76ers.
