The Milwaukee Bucks moved up to sole position of the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference with a 108-105 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons. The Bucks led by as much as 18 points in the first half only to see the Pistons rally and lead by 10 points in the fourth quarter. Milwaukee clawed back and sent the game into overtime and sealed the victory on a second-chance three-pointer by Khris Middleton in the final minute. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 28 points and 14 rebounds while missing a triple-double by a single assist. Middleton added 25 while rookie Thon Maker scored a season-high 23 points in 24 minutes. Milwaukee (40-36) will play home again Sunday afternoon against the Dallas Mavericks.
