MILWAUKEE -- It was a tale of two halves.
The host Milwaukee Bucks came from 22 points down in the opening half and turned the tables on the Chicago Bulls, 123-104 on Friday night at the Fiserv Forum.
Kris Middleton led the way with a near triple-double of 23 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Eric Bledsoe led all scorers with 25 points plus six dimes while Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 23 and 13 boards.
With the come-from-behind triumph, the Bucks improved to 11-4, which puts them second place in the Eastern Conference behind the 12-4 Toronto Raptors, who will visit the Bulls at the United Center on Saturday night (Sunday AM Manila time).
Trailing by as many as 22 in the first half and 63-45 at the break, the Bucks bounced back in the second half by outscoring the Bulls 78-41 in the second half, including a 46-point third quarter. After a frigid start, the Bucks ended up making 47 of their 97 field goals (50.9 percent) and 18 of their 43 triples (41.9 percent).
Jabari Parker had 21 points and eight rebounds for Chicago while Justin Holiday pitched in 20. Zach LaVine managed with 15 but he missed 14 of 20 shots. After a hot start, the Bulls went cold and ended up with a 43.6 percent clip from the field (41 of 94).
