Khris Middleton was also out of their last game due to a knee injury. In the absence of Antetokounmpo and Middleton, Jrue Holiday led the Pacers with 26 points and 14 rebounds. The Bucks won their 19th game of the season with a 21-0 run in the fourth quarter.
The Houston Rockets have returned to earth after stunning the whole NBA with a seven-game winning streak.
