MILWAUKEE (AP) — Brook Lopez made a tiebreaking layup and a steal in the final 25 seconds as the Milwaukee Bucks edged the Phoenix Suns 104-101 for their 14th consecutive victory.
The nationally televised game Sunday didn't include Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo or Phoenix's Kevin Durant.
Antetokounmpo was out with a bruised right quadriceps after leaving in the first quarter of the Bucks' 128-99 victory over the Miami Heat on Friday.
Durant has yet to appear in a game for the Suns and hasn't played since Jan. 8 because of a sprained right medial collateral ligament.
