The game marked the NBA debuts of two Bucks players, first-round draft pick Tobias Harris and rookie Darington Hobson.
Harris was on a 10-minute limit as he played his first game after suffering dehydration and muscle soreness. He finished with four points, two fouls and one steal in 9 minutes. He played 5 minutes at the start of the second quarter and 4 minutes to open the final period.
"I felt good," Harris said. "It was good to just be out there, be playing and be active with the guys.
"I was being aggressive out there, just bring a scoring threat and play my role."
Harris said he hopes he can continue to build his minutes while he gets back in playing shape after being out more than three weeks.
"I thought he was OK for his first time," Skiles said. "He got a couple quick baskets. I would have liked to play him more.
"I'm hopeful in the next day or so there won't be any time restrictions and we can get him out there for some more minutes."
