Bucks rally from 17 down, beat Nets 103-97

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Khris Middleton scored 12 of his 18 points in the third quarter, and the Milwaukee Bucks rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets 103-97 on Monday night.

Jared Dudley had 19 points for Milwaukee, which won its fifth straight home game. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 12 points and nine rebounds.

After a poor-shooting first half, the Bucks turned up the defensive pressure and forced eight turnovers in a third quarter in which they outscored Brooklyn by 16.

Jarrett Jack had 26 points for the Nets.

But mistakes doomed Brooklyn. It closed to 89-84 midway through the fourth quarter, but Dudley recovered a turnover by Mason Plumlee that turned into an easy transition layup for Middleton that put the Bucks back up by nine with 3:14 left.
