Last second comeback lifts Bucks past Blazers

Milwaukee -

The Bucks are hoping a last-second comeback win can do for their confidence what the Motor City Miracle has done for the Packers.

Greg Monroe's layup with five seconds left lifted the Bucks past the Portland Trail Blazers 90-88 Monday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Monroe finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds on the night.

Trailing by four, the Bucks turned to Giannis Antetokounmpo for his signature driving layup with 23 seconds remaining to cut the deficit in half. Seconds later, O.J. Mayo's three pointer made it a one point Bucks deficit. That's when Milwaukee turned to Monroe, whose game winner punctuated his 11th double-double of the season.

John Henson blocked a shot with two seconds remaining to seal the win for the Bucks.
