A treat for the fans all over the world as Luka Doncic and Giannis Antetokounmpo stepped on the court against each other but the Dallas Mavericks were eventually the winning team with a 118-112 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Luka Doncic led the way with 32 points and 15 assists while also grabbing eight rebounds and stealing the ball three times. He scored 11 points in the fourth quarter including the go-ahead three-pointer early in the period.

This was the third 30-point, 15-assist game for Doncic this season. He’s leading the league in front of James Harden, Trae Young and Dejounte Murray who have one each.

Luka got some backup from Dwight Powell with 22 and Jalen Branson with 15 points. Powell also grabbed 13 boards.

On the other side, Giannis had 28 points, ten rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Jrue Holiday followed up with 20 points, nine assists while Bobby Portis scored 17.

The Mavericks are very close to securing the fourth spot in the Western Conference with a 49-30 record but are also on the chase for the Golden State Warriors who hold a 49-29 record in front.

The Bucks have a much closer battle in the Eastern Conference but are also third at the moment with 48-30. The Boston Celtics are seconds with 49-30 while the Philadelphia 76ers are fourth with 47-30.
