Kelly Oubre Jr. added 19 points and Kent Bazemore added another 18 to end a three-game losing streak in the first of four games at home. Oubre gave the Warriors the lead with two free throws with 7.7 seconds to go for the end.
The Golden State had lost seven of the previous eight games and are clinging to the tenth place in the Western Conference, the last one that gives access to the playoffs.
The Warriors trailed 116-110 with four minutes to go, but boosted with a 14-1 run with a triple by Curry, to turn the score around 120-117, with one minute to go. The Bucks took advantage of a rebound to lead by a point before Oubre’s key free throws. Those of Milwaukee still had the ball and two chances for the win, but Middleton missed a triple and Connaughton a shot with 3.7 seconds to go.
The Bucks played without their top star, Giannis Antetokounmpo, for the second day in a row due to a left knee injury.
