Middleton's free throw lifts Bucks over Celtics 112-111

MILWAUKEE (AP) Greg Monroe isn't used to being out of the starting lineup.

Benched at the start of Tuesday night's game against the Boston Celtics, the Milwaukee Bucks center responded with a huge game. He scored 29 and grabbed 12 rebounds to spark his team to end a five-game losing streak with a 112-111 victory.

He started 48 games as a rookie with Detroit and has been in the starting lineup for 336 of 348 contests since then until coming off the bench against Boston.
