Bucks start second half with another win as new players settle in

Brandon Knight may be gone, but the new look Bucks started the second half they way they played for most of the season's first half.

Six Bucks players scored in double figures, led by Khris Middleton's 15 points, as the Bucks topped the Denver Nuggets 89-81 Friday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Bucks didn't take their first lead of the game until late in the third quarter on a Middleton three pointer. The Bucks held Denver off throughout the fourth quarter, with another three from Middleton giving Milwaukee a ten point lead in the game's final minutes. Jerryd Bayless added 11 points, seven rebounds and eight assists for the Bucks, who won for the 31st time this season after winning just 15 games a year ago.

Michael Carter Williams and Miles Plumlee, acquired in the Knight trade, did not play for the Bucks. Tyler Ennis scored four points.
