The Milwaukee Bucks held off a late rally and knocked off the Indiana Pacers 87-81, ending their 16-game road losing streak.
The streak began at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Feb. 27 of last season and it ended last night.
Point guard Brandon Knight scored 23 points and pulled down 7 rebounds to lead the Bucks (2-2). The Pacers cut the Bucks lead to three points, but Knight hit a jumper with 22.3 seconds left to put the Bucks up 5 and clinch the victory.
The Bucks got a big contribution from their bench (47 points) in the win. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 11 points and Jerryd Bayless added 10.
Chris Copeland had 19 points to lead the Pacers, who played without two injured starters. But the Bucks defense held Indiana to 39.7% from the field.
The Bucks also cut their turnovers to 13 after committing 28 in a Saturday night loss at Washington.
