The Milwaukee Bucks needed overtime to pull out a 108-101 win over the Atlanta Hawks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Friday night.

Michael Carter-Williams blocked a Jeff Teague shot in the closing seconds of regulation to force overtime and the Bucks dominated the extra session to pull out the win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks (17-25) with 28 points and a career-high 16 rebounds while playing a game-high 50 minutes.  He posted his third consecutive double-double, the first time he has done that in his pro career.

Khris Middleton had 26 points and Michael Carter-Williams added 15 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

All five Bucks starters were in double figures and John Henson had 10 points, seven rebounds and tied a season high with six blocks in 31 minutes off the bench.

The Bucks return to the court, traveling to Charlotte to face the Hornets tonight.
