With the loss, the Bucks did not clinch the Eastern Conference's top seed for the NBA Playoffs, although Milwaukee needs just one win in its last six seeding games to do so.
Milwaukee, playing without Eric Bledsoe and Pat Connaughton, shot just 9 of 35 from deep, whereas the Houston Rockets made 21 three-point shot attempts.
Next up, the Bucks play the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday afternoon at 12:30 p.m.
