NOTES

BUCKS: Milwaukee guard Jrue Holiday followed up his biggest game of the season by making a long-term commitment to his new team.

Holiday agreed to a four-year contract extension that would be worth at least $134 million if he exercises his option for the final season. The Bucks announced the agreement Sunday.

The announcement came one day after Holiday had a season-high 33 points as well as 11 assists and seven rebounds in a 129-128 victory at Sacramento. Holiday’s performance enabled the Bucks to withstand the absence of reigning two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who sat out because of a sore left knee.
