The small forward was the team's top scorer in the 104-101 win, which was just their eighth victory of the 2013-14 NBA season.
The 33-year-old told reporters: "It was a special night. It was bobblehead night, and obviously I'm well-rested. I've been chilling on the sidelines for a while, and I was excited to get back out there and just play. My coaching staff and my teammates believed in me, got me open and got me into a rhythm.
"We really needed that win. We were excited about tonight, another opportunity to get a win and start something good. I loved our energy the first half of the game. We came here re-emphasising that we didn't want to come out flat in the third quarter. That's been our Achilles heel for majority of the season."
The Bucks have the worst record in the league.
