Middleton, Portis lead Bucks past slumping Magic 124-87

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Khris Middleton scored 21 points, Bobby Portis added 16 points, including four 3-pointers, and 10 rebounds off the bench and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Orlando Magic 124-87 on Sunday night to end a three-game losing streak.

Milwaukee was again without star Giannis Antetokounmpo, but it mattered little as Middleton shot 8 of 13 from the field and added eight rebounds and five assists to help the Bucks lead wire to wire. Middleton also hit two 3-pointers to give him 1,000 for his NBA career.

"He's the ultimate professional, so consistent, a great scorer and he does it in a lot of different ways," Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said of Middleton. "I think, at the same time, he's a great leader. He's really taken on a more impactful leadership role. The scoring and the 3s, everybody sees, but I like how he's taken on leadership."
