Parker returns, Bucks win second straight

The Bucks' early season troubles are fading as the roster gets back to full strength.

Jabari Parker returned to the Bucks lineup for the first time in nearly a year, scoring two points in 16 minutes as the Bucks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 91-87 Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Parker hadn't played in a game for the Bucks since tearing his ACL last December 15th in Phoenix. Parker started the game and scored the first points of his sophomore season just a few minutes into the first quarter, but did not score again in the contest.

Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 21, and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 17. Giannis was suspended for the season opener after an incident in the Bucks final playoff game last season.

The Bucks won for the first time on their home floor this season after starting the campaign with losses to the Knicks and Wizards in Milwaukee. Jason Kidd's bunch heads to New York to face the Knicks Friday.
