Bucks vs. Magic final score: Milwaukee suffers crippling 113-103 overtime loss in Orlando

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Bucks missed a golden opportunity to creep up the Eastern Conference standings on Wednesday night with an overtime loss in Orlando. The Magic got double-doubles from Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris in the victory.

Although they've already clinched a postseason berth, the Milwaukee Bucks did themselves no favors in an attempt to avoid an opening-round playoff matchup with the Miami Heat, falling to the Orlando Magic 113-103 in overtime on Wednesday.

With the loss, Milwaukee has now lost four of five games overall and sits 3.5 games behind Boston for the No. 7 spot in the East. The Celtics are in action Wednesday night against Brooklyn, and a win by Boston would ensure them no worse than a tie with Milwaukee for seventh place.

On the evening, Orlando got huge performances from both Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris. The duo combined for 60 points and 39 rebounds for the Magic, which improved to 20-59 on the season.

Meanwhile, it was a disappointing loss for Milwaukee, who wasted a big effort from rookie John Henson in the defeat. Henson was one of five Bucks to score in double figures, with 17 points to go along with 25 rebounds and seven blocks.

Milwaukee will return to the court on Friday when they face the Hawks in Atlanta.

Orlando will next host Boston at 7:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.
