– The Bucks have staved off elimination without the services of Giannis Antetokounmpo, winning 118-115 in overtime over the Heat in Game 4 for their first victory of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Antetokounmpo exited the game early in the second quarter after aggravating a sprained right ankle, but Milwaukee managed to stay alive thanks to a sensational performance from Khris Middleton. Middleton scored 21 of his 36 points in the third quarter, and made a clutch 3-pointer with 6.3 seconds left in overtime to extend the series for top-seeded Milwaukee. In the West, the top seed has tied its series at 1-1 after the Lakers pulled away for a 117-109 win over the Rockets. Anthony Davis paced the Lakers with 34 points and LeBron James just missed a triple-double, finishing with 28 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.
