Bucks beat Clippers 113-106 for 6th straight victory without Antetokounmpo

Damian Lillard leads Bucks to victory over Clippers despite Giannis Antetokounmpo's absence. Milwaukee wins 6th straight game.

The Milwaukee Bucks pulled off an impressive comeback victory against the Los Angeles Clippers, led by a stellar performance from Damian Lillard who scored 41 points. Despite the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo due to left Achilles tendinitis, the Bucks managed to secure their sixth consecutive win.

This marks Antetokounmpo's third missed game of the season, with previous absences due to a strained right calf and a bruised right shoulder. Coach Doc Rivers mentioned that the Achilles issue has been a concern for the past few games.

The Bucks' recent success has been remarkable, especially considering they have been undefeated since the All-Star break. Their upcoming four-game trip to California will be a true test of their resilience, starting with a matchup against the Golden State Warriors.

Bobby Portis played a crucial role in the victory, scoring 28 points and grabbing 16 rebounds, with 14 of those points coming in the fourth quarter. Patrick Beverley also made significant contributions, scoring 12 points and igniting the winning rally.

Despite strong performances from James Harden and Paul George, the Clippers couldn't hold off the Bucks' late surge. After trailing by 13 points in the third quarter, Milwaukee mounted an impressive comeback to secure the win.

The game was a rollercoaster of emotions, with the Bucks tying the game at 96 with a clutch 3-pointer from Beverley. Lillard's driving layup gave the Bucks the lead, and a series of key plays from Portis sealed the victory.

Looking ahead, the Clippers will face the Houston Rockets, while the Bucks will continue their road trip against the Golden State Warriors. The Bucks' resilience and determination in the face of adversity have been truly commendable, setting the stage for an exciting rest of the season.
