Khris Middleton scored 27 points, Bobby Portis added 17 points and 11 rebounds, and Giannis Antetokounmpo-less Milwaukee held off visiting Cleveland, 100-90.

Antetokounmpo, the two-time reigning NBA Most Valuable Player, was a pre-game scratch due to back spasms, one night after taking a hard fall in the Bucks’ loss to the Utah Jazz.


Milwaukee came out strong Saturday despite its star’s absence, holding a Cleveland side dealing with its own injury issues to just 14 points in the first quarter.
