    GIANNIS Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker combined for 58 points but the Milwaukee Bucks needed some clutch hits to survive a fiery late-game rally from the Chicago Bulls and snap a three-game slide with a 108-97 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Thursday (Friday, Manila time).

    Parker and Antetokounmpo got going early, combining for 24 of the Bucks’ 30 first quarter points then pushing Milwaukee up 56-30 at the 4:01 mark in the second.

    Milwaukee still led by 24 at the start of the fourth before Chicago unleashed a 12-0 run early in the fourth to cut the gap to 12 with 7:13 remaining, and Doug McDermott’s triple got the Bulls within single digits at the 4:13 mark, 101-92.

    After a Dwyane Wade layup got the Bulls within eight, Matthew Dellavedova answered with a booming triple to push the Bucks back up 108-97 with 1:34 to go and the Bucks had two key defensive stops to preserve the score and the win.
