Boracay Island, Philippines – Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with game-highs 36 points and 20 rebounds, to go with 6 assists and 1 steal to help the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks beat the struggling conference rivals Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night (Friday morning, Philippine time) at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The reigning league MVP also had ample help, as all of his teammates contributed on the scoring department, led by Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe, who had 20 and 14, respectively. The Bucks, who have won 12 of their last 13 games, improved to 44 wins against only 7 losses to fortify their hold at the top of the team standings.
Tobias Harris made 5 treys to finish with 25 markers for Philadelphia. Joel Embiid added 19 points, 11 boards, and 6 dimes, but shot an atrocious 6-for-26 from the field. Ben Simmons had a near triple-double of 11PTS, 14REBS, and 9ASTS for the 76ers, who have lost 4 in a row and dropped to a 31-21 win-loss card.
The 76ers, who are now at 6th place in the Eastern Conference team standings, will travel home to host the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night (Saturday morning, Philippine time).
Meanwhile, the Bucks will face the Magic in Orlando on Saturday night (Sunday morning, Philippine time).
How they scored:
Bucks 112 – Antetokounmpo 36, Middleton 20, Bledsoe 14, R. Lopez 9, Matthews 8, DiVincenzo 8, Connaughton 6, Korver 5, B. Lopez 4, Ilyasova 2
