Bucks keep streak alive as Sixers win

Bucks keep streak alive as Sixers win

The Knicks were thrashed by the Bucks and RJ Barrett and Kevin Knox II struggled.

Giannis Antetokounmpo totaled 29 points and 15 rebounds in 22 minutes Monday night as the host Milwaukee Bucks easily extended their winning streak to 12 games with a wire-to-wire, 132-88 rout of the New York Knicks. Wilson who accounted for 19 points and 5 rebounds.

Young reached the 20-point mark for the 18th time this season, and extended his streak of making at least 10 field goals to six games. The Jazz lost for the fifth time in six games. We've got to keep getting better, keep improving as a team, because we're trying to translate everything we're doing right now to the end of the year. They got whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted.

I agree with the general "If Dolan were to cede control to a smart basketball mind, then this could actually work" position, but that's not really a defense of Dolan, as the fact remains that he A. hasn't done that yet and B. he has stuck with Mills and Perry despite it being pretty plainly obvious that they're not the best bet for him.

Milwaukee would continue to pound the Knicks en route to grabbing hold of the league's best record (18-3), in addition to handing NY its largest loss.

Oubre finished with 23 points, missing the first seven of his 3-point attempts before hitting twice from long range in the last minute. "It's simply impressive. The league is in good hands, I know, when you have a guy like that on top".

There were complaints about the Lakers' strength of schedule (or lack thereof) to open this season, but back-to-back wins over Denver and Utah have put doubts of Los Angeles' legitimacy to bed. Like I said, I don't think we came into this game believing that we can win this game and that's what was the most disappointing. "Nobody relaxes. We show up and do our job". "My teammates are having fun. We'll own it. we'll watch it and we'll get ready for another very good basketball team".

Here are 15 thoughts, one for each win, on what the Bucks did in November.

The only Antetokounmpo that played in the last quarter was Giannis' elder brother, Thanasis, who attracted cheers from the crowd when he got into a trap at the beginning of the period. Antetokounmpo scored 12 points in the third, and Milwaukee led 92-72 after three. "I liked our fire in general", Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. They scored more than 125 points for the second consecutive outing, a feat they last accomplished in November 2018 against the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks. The Knicks shot 30.8% from the field (28 of 91) and made 25.6% of their 3-point tries (10 of 39).

Behind a 9-0 run, the Lakers surged out to a 30-20 lead.

The Bucks are two games clear of second-placed Toronto, who stand at 15-4, just ahead of the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics (14-5).

Forward Blake Griffin scored 24 points on Tuesday but may sit out tonight as he continues to be rested on the second night of back-to-back games.

Khris Middleton returned to the starting lineup after leaving the previous three games.
