MICHAEL Beasley scored a season-high 28 points in a rare start and rookie Malcolm Brogdon hit the go-ahead triple as the Milwaukee Bucks staged a late rally to stun the San Antonio Spurs, 109-107, on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) at the AT&T Center.
After trailing by as much as 13 in the first half and playing catch up the entire game, Milwaukee got its first taste of the lead since the opening quarter on Jabari Parker's layup, 103-101, with 2:56 left in the game. Beasley added two points off free throws, but the Spurs retook the lead, 107-105, on successive triples from Danny Green and Davis Bertrans.
Brogdon countered with the dagger trey and made one of two free throws with 6.7 seconds remaining. Manu Ginobili's three-point attempt was way off the mark as time expired.
Milwaukee outscored San Antonio 26-18 in the final period to complete the comeback.
Parker had 22 points and seven rebounds while Brogdon added 17 points and three triples. Beasley started in place for Giannis Antetokounmpo who remains on sick bay.
Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points for the Spurs who saw their nine-game home winning run end. Tony Parker and Danny Green each added 14 points.
