Antetokounmpo scores 27 on 27th birthday, Bucks win 112-104

MILWAUKEE (AP) Giannis Antetokounmpo came back from a two-game absence and scored 27 points on his 27th birthday to help the Milwaukee Bucks defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 112-104 on Monday night.

The two-time MVP made all three of his 3-point attempts and also had 12 rebounds in his return from a sore right calf as the Bucks won for the 10th time in 11 games. He scored 15 points in the fourth quarter.

"Guys are playing with confidence, playing together," said Antetokounmpo, who went 6 of 7 on free throws. "We're guarding together. We're in a very, very good spot right now."
