Milwaukee pulled off the largest comeback win of the season with the help of Damian Lillard, who scored 31 points in his first game back against his old team.
Playing against former teammates was "a weird feeling," according to Lillard, who spent 11 seasons in Portland before being dealt to Milwaukee in September.
Jerami Grant had 22 points and Malcolm Brogdon scored 18 to help Portland lead 68-52 at the half and increase their lead to 26 points early in the third quarter.
With fewer than three minutes left, Lillard's three-pointer tied the score at 97-97.
With 18.5 seconds remaining, Antetokounmpo tipped in the game-winning basket to level the score at 102-102.
Antetokounmpo's strong block of Brogdon and Lillard's four free throws clinched the victory.
