The Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers both entered Thursday’s elite-level matchup at 24-4 on the season.
This game in Wisconsin could very well be a preview of the 2020 NBA Finals come June.
In the end, Milwaukee came out on top in a well-played game. Giannis Antetokounmpo stood above his MVP candidate counterparts on the Lakers to the tune of 34 points. Anthony Davis went tit-for-tat with Giannis while LeBron James struggled to an extent.
These are among the biggest winners and losers from Milwaukee’s stirring 111-104 victory over the Lakers.
Winner: Giannis Antetokounmpo
The Greek Freak is now hitting three-pointers on a consistent basis. Antetokounmpo nailed five from beyond the arc on Thursday, including one from really long range. Once Giannis starts hitting these shots, he’s going to be nearly unstoppable.
