It’s been almost one year since Jabari Parker stepped onto an NBA court for the Milwaukee Bucks. Friday night marked his long-awaited return from his second ACL injury last February.
Parker found his rhythm and helped Milwaukee snag a 92-90 victory away from the New York Knicks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. After the game, Parker stated that it felt good to be back on the court but he still needs to continue training to get back to his full capacity as a player.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led all Bucks players with 29 points in another dazzling display of skill and showmanship on the court.
Milwaukee (28-23) heads to New York for a showdown with the Brooklyn Nets (19-34) on Sunday. With Fridays win the Bucks sit in second place in the central division only 2.5 games behind Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
