NEW YORK (AP) - Shaun Livingston scored 20 points, Mirza Teletovic came off the bench to add 19 and the Brooklyn Nets rebounded from an embarrassing Christmas Day performance by ending their four-game losing streak with a 104-93 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
Paul Pierce added 13 points for the Nets, who lost by 17 points in their two previous games.
Rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 points and 10 rebounds for Milwaukee, and Khris Middleton added 15 points and eight boards.
The Bucks went on a 24-10 run to get within 97-88 with 2:24 remaining after Antetokounmpo scored five straight points.
But after Milwaukee called a timeout, Teletovic hit his third 3-pointer of the quarter to put the Nets ahead 100-88 with 2:03 left and Brooklyn closed it out from the free throw line.
