The Chicago Bulls cut Milwaukee's lead to three points with three minutes to go, but the Bucks still won Monday's game 112-99.
Milwaukee outscored Chicago 12-2 the rest of the way. After missing Saturday's loss to Orlando, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 29 points, 17 rebounds and eight assists in the victory. The Bucks won for the 13th time in their last 15 games, improving their league-leading record to 42-14 despite turning the ball over 17 times. The newest Buck, Nikola Mirotic, stayed on the bench and may not play until after the All-Star game. Milwaukee plays at Indiana against the Pacers Wednesday.
