Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded a huge double-double for the Bucks, who extended their winning run to a remarkable 15 games.
The Milwaukee Bucks have managed to stay under everyone’s notice for this season. Despite having to cope with injuries to essential players at various periods in the season, they have managed to maintain their position around the top of the Eastern Conference standings ever since the season began.
After a victory against their primary competition, the Boston Celtics, the Milwaukee Bucks improved their record to 44-17, making them the team with the best record in the league. They have also won 15 consecutive games, the fourth-longest winning run in the history of their organization. This makes them the hottest team in the league right now.
Giannis Antetokounmpo returned from injury (a sprained right quadriceps) to lead his team in scoring with 33 points while grabbing 15 rebounds and dishing out four assists. Khris Middleton’s 18 points off the bench were a helpful compliment to his fellow teammate.
The Bucks were down by 10 points at the half but went on a run in the third session that saw them outscore their opponent 14-4 to bring the score even to 68. While Brooklyn regained the lead, Milwaukee could win because of their improved defensive play in the final period, which held the Nets to just 7-of-23 shooting.
Brooklyn was led in scoring by Mikal Bridges, who has been putting up incredible numbers for the Nets since he moved there. Bridges finished with 31 points.
Nowadays, Ja Morant is entirely involved in the affairs of the Lakers.
The All-Star player for the Grizzlies finished the game with 39 points, ten rebounds, and ten assists, giving him a triple-double. In addition to that, he had two steals and hit better than half of his shots from the floor.
Other players who had outstanding performances today were Bradley Beal (37 points) and Tyrese Haliburton (seven assists) (32-7-6).
You probably predicted correctly that Nikola Jokic had another triple-double (14 points, 11 rebounds, and ten assists). That was his 100th career triple-double, and he is now leading the league with 24 of them this season. When the Joker records a triple-double, the Nuggets have improved their record to 24-0 for the season.
