Michael Beasley led the way for the Bucks, pouring in 23 points. "Fourteen guys ready to play at a high level". I'd expect his playtime to be limited to potentially non-existent if Middleton plays tonight, but his decent defensive showing could mean he'll get a chance against the marksman Caldwell-Pope. "They did a great job". The Bucks are coming off of a 116-100 win at IN on Saturday.

"Us being his family, being brothers, we've got to pick up the slack, just hold down the fort until (Parker) gets back", Beasley said. Over the years, we constantly hear senseless chatter about how certain college teams could beat certain National Basketball Association teams.

Bucks: Led by Beasley and Monroe, Milwaukee started the second quarter 7 of 11 from the field.

Monroe accounted for nine points, including seven straight, during the game-changing run that knocked the already lethargic Detroit offense on its heels.

"We have a deep roster", Beasley said. "It was just a bad night".

Milwaukee loses Parker who was averaging a career-high 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.

Tony Snell added 16 points and Khris Middleton 11 as the Bucks bench scored 49 points on the night. He leads the Eastern Conference with 37 double-doubles this season. After missing the first 50 games of the season while recovering from a torn hamstring, Middleton played two games and then did not travel Saturday to IN, where the Bucks played the second half of a back-to-back. With the BMO Harris Bradley Center crowd in stunned silence, Parker was unable to stand up on his own, eventually being helped up by teammates and limping off the court. The Pistons snapped a three-game road losing streak Sunday night at Toronto but have lost 10 of their past 14 road contests.

Pistons: Host Dallas on Wednesday night in Detroit's last game before the All-Star break. The Pistons fell for the fifth time in their past six visits to Milwaukee.

Since the loss to the Heat - in which Khris Middleton, who'd missed the first 50 games with a hamstring injury, made his season debut - and a subsequent home defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Bucks have won two games in a row, beating the Pacers in IN and the Detroit Pistons at home.
