Six Bucks players reached double figures, led by a near-triple double by Giannis Antetokounmpo, as Milwaukee held off Charlotte in the season opener, 113-112.
Milwaukee's first regular-season game featured a little bit of the new Bucks (plenty of early three-point shots), including the debut of rookie Donte DiVincenzo.
Khris Middleton had 19 points and Eric Bledsoe had 17, while offseason acquisitions Brook Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova combined for 27 in the win.
Antetokounmpo had 18 rebounds and eight assists to round out his usual stat-stuffing line.
Milwaukee opens up Fiserv Forum on Friday night.
