The Milwaukee Bucks clashed back-to-back with the Brooklyn Nets and came out on top this time as well with 124-118 on the scoreboard as Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way.

In the previous game, Giannis went off for 49 points and added 36 more last night as the Nets couldn’t find a way to stop the two-time MVP.

The Greek Freak also grabbed 12 rebounds but the most peculiar thing about his performance was the fact that he shot 12 times from the three-point territory, and made four of them.

Meanwhile, Luka Doncic and Goran Dragic went at it but the Dallas Mavericks got the 127-113 win over the short-handed Miami Heat who missed Jimmy Butler.

Doncic logged 23 points, 12 rebounds, and eight assists and got lots of help from Tim Hardaway who banked in 36 points while, on the opposing side, Dragic scored 19 as did Duncan Robinson.

Sekou Doumbouya was the surprise of the night with his 20 points in Detroit’s loss to Charlotte while Cedi Osman scored 16 in the overtime affair versus the Phoenix Suns.

Gabriel Deck keeps improving and adjusting to the NBA with his latest challenge, against the Sacramento Kings, being the best so far with 16 points. In fact, Deck has been scoring more each game he has played (2, 8, 11, 16 points).
