Tough defense by Milwaukee's Malcolm Brogdon kept Damian Lillard from getting a clean look at a tying 3 and the Bucks hold on for a 93-90 win in Portland. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points and Khris Middleton 22 for Milwaukee, which earns sole possession of seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Blazers slip a full game behind the idle Denver Nuggets for eighth in the West.
