Bogdan Bogdanovic and Nemanja Bjelica won the clash against their Serbian national team teammate Nikola Jokic as the Sacramento Kings beat the Denver Nuggets 100 – 97 after coming back from 17 points down.

Bjelica finished with a double-double of 10 points (on 3/11 shots) plus a team-high 12 rebounds and team-high-tying five assists. Bogdanovic was the other Kings player with five assists to go with his 10 points (4/16 from the field) off the bench.

Jokic struggled with his shooting as well, finishing with 3/11 (including missing consecutive baskets in the fourth period) while also posting 10 rebounds and six assists.

In Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t manage to extend his 19-game streak of double-doubles but still got the job done for his team. The “Greek Freak” scored 26 points and grabbed nine rebounds as the Bucks blew out the Charlotte Hornets 137 – 96 to capture their 11th straight victory.

Dragan Bender played his second game with the Bucks and made the most out of the 14 minutes he stepped on the court by scoring 12 points. These were his first NBA points this season. Ersan Ilyasova added 11 points for the Bucks.

From the Hornets, Willy Hernangomez had five points and Nicolas Batum two points.
