Milwaukee Bucks beat Denver Nuggets 107-99 at Fiserv Forum

Basketball fans at Fiserv Forum didn’t get the two-time MVP vs. two-time MVP game that they hoped for on Wednesday night.

That’s because Nuggets star Nikola Jokic was scratched after playing in a win over the Pelicans in New Orleans on Tuesday. He missed Denver’s two games before that with a tight hamstring and was held out against the Bucks with the same issue.

BOX SCORE: Bucks 107, Nuggets 99

The Bucks had their MVP in Giannis Antetokounmpo, who contributed 33 points and 14 rebounds in a 107-99 win. Milwaukee improved to 31-17, while Denver dropped to 34-15.

The Nuggets also sat three other starters: Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr. and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

The Bucks played without Sixth Man of the Year candidate Bobby Portis, who will miss some time with a sprained knee.
