Antetokounmpo, Bucks hold off Hornets 'small ball' 113-112

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Tony Parker said he'd never seen anything like it in his 18 seasons in the NBA.

The Charlotte Hornets went small ball - like really, really small ball -during a stretch to start the fourth quarter and nearly overcame a 20-point deficit before falling 113-112 to Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.

Antetokounmpo had 25 points, 18 rebounds and eight assists and made two free throws with 23.7 seconds left for the go-ahead score as the Bucks held off late rally and a 41-point performance from Hornets point guard Kemba Walker to earn the win.
