While not quite a landslide, the contest between Milwaukee and Memphis on Friday was still a pretty decisive one as the Bucks wrapped it up with a 127-114 win. Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was the offensive standout of the game for Milwaukee, as he posted a double-double on 37 points and 11 rebounds.
Antetokounmpo’s numbers are even better than they were a season ago when he won the NBA MVP. He’s averaging 31.1 points, 13.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game and his play at both ends of the floor have helped the Bucks rank third in the NBA in offensive rating (114.5), first in defensive rating (101.8), first in offensive eFG% (56.3) and second in defensive eFG% (48.7).
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Cleveland ultimately got the result it was hoping for in a 117-109 win over San Antonio on Thursday. The Cavs’ success was spearheaded by the efforts of forward Kevin Love, who dropped a double-double on 30 points and 17 boards, and guard Collin Sexton, who had 28 points. The Cavaliers have the benefit of good health right now, as rookie Dylan Windler (leg) is the only player currently listed on their injury report.
