MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo tied a career high with 34 points and the Milwaukee Bucks stunned the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-101 on Tuesday night.

NETS 127, CLIPPERS 122: Sean Kilpatrick scored 31 of his career-high 38 points after the third quarter and host Brooklyn stopped a seven-game losing streak with a double-overtime victory.

Jrue Holiday scored 22 points in his first start this season as New Orleans snapped a two-game skid.

Utah started strong en route to a season high for scoring. Rodney Hood had 10 points during a 20-5 first-quarter run after trailing 16-9, and Houston never led again. Hood finished with 19 points.

NOTES

GRIZZLIES: Guard Mike Conley will miss at least six weeks after being diagnosed with fractures of the transverse process bones in the vertebrae of his lower back. Conley will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

MAVERICKS: Dirk Nowitzki will be out at least two more games with a right Achilles tendon injury that has contributed to him missing 11 of the first 16 games this season.
