MILWAUKEE -- The Bucks, without star Giannis Antetokounmpo and key rotation pieces Malcolm Brogdon and Ersan Ilyasova, handed the depleted Lakers a loss, 115-101. The Lakers were without superstar Lebron James, who was out with goin soreness, but Kentavious Caldwell-Pope picked up the slack, pouring in 35 points off the bench, singlehandedly keeping the Lakers in the game in the second half. Khris Middleton led the Bucks with a Giannis like 30/10/5 statline, with Brook Lopez adding 28 points.


The Bucks will head to Cleveland immediately to take on the Cavs, 6pm tip from Ohio.
