Jerryd Bayless poured in 26-points and tied a career-high with six-three pointers to help the Milwaukee Bucks win for the first time this season, 103-96 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
The Bucks blew a nine-point halftime lead. The game was tied at 80 going into the fourth quarter, and the Bucks’ defense held the Nets to just 16-points in the final period.
Center Greg Monroe had 23 points and 13 rebounds, but Bucks guard Michael Carter-Williams hurt his left ankle late in the game.
The Bucks will host the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night and will welcome forward Jabari Parker to the lineup for the first time since he tore his A-C-L last December.
Parker was cleared by doctors to return yesterday.
The Bucks are 1-3 on the season. They’ll return to the practice floor later today.
