Indianapolis, IN -- The Milwaukee Bucks are, by all accounts, putting on a historic season but it's impossible to win every game over a grueling, 82 game schedule. Tonight was one of those nights just ripe for a loss. They faced a hungry, desperate Pacers team that was coming in having lost six in a row without reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was not with the team for the second straight game after the birth of his son this week. Seventeen turnovers was a big reason they couldn't overcome some large deficits in this one. The Bucks would use a 22-5 run late in the third, into the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 88-84 but that's as close as it would get. Final score: Pacers 118 Bucks 111.
