The Milwaukee Bucks have repeatedly threatened to bury the Detroit Pistons forever.

But the pistons did not allow them.

A pair of free throws by George Hill gave the Bucks an 85-69 lead with 3:11 remaining in the third quarter. The Pistons, who bounced back after trailing 15 points in the first quarter and kept within walking distance for most of the night, had to run again.

The Pistons used a 25-13 boom to cut the gap to two in the middle of the fourth quarter, leveling the match just under a minute before a layup by Isiah Stewart. But the 3-pointer by Jrue Holiday clutch with 45 seconds left ended up being the dagger Milwaukee needed to pull off forever.

The Bucks defeated the Pistons in Milwaukee, 110-108, behind a 31-point night behind Giannis Antetokounmpo. Kid Cunningham, who continued his strong run on Monday, missed the elbow-jumping and triple-pointers game in the final 40 seconds that would have given Detroit a chance to win. However it was another big night for Cunningham, who led the Pistons with 27 points along with seven assists and six rebounds.
