Durant, Warriors hold off Bucks, 124-121

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 33 points, Klay Thompson had 25 of his 29 in the second half, and the Golden State Warriors held on to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 124-121 on Saturday night for their seventh straight victory.
   The Warriors led by as much as 14 before Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo led a 13-4 run in the fourth quarter that cut it to 122-120 with about 2 1/2 minutes left on Parker's three-point play.
   Rowdy Bucks fans had designs of an upset of Golden State at the Bradley Center, just like last season.
   The teams exchanged empty possessions before Draymond Green's sparkling defensive effort with 10 seconds left. Green tipped away an inbounds pass intended for Antetokounmpo, with Thompson getting fouled after securing the loose ball.
   Thompson hit both free throws with 8 seconds left for a four-point lead.
   Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, while Parker had 28.
