By Eurohoops team /

Giannis Antetokounmpo flirted with triple-double numbers though his performance alone wasn’t enough to save the Milwaukee Bucks against the Houston Rockets as the latter prevailed with a 110-96 win.

The Greek Freak posted 23 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the Bucks (16-13), even though the Milwaukee side slipped their fifth straight game. Norman Powell and Pascal Siakam added 29 and 27 points respectively for the Rockets (14-15).

James Harden scored 23 points, Joe Harris had 21 points on six 3-pointers as the Brooklyn Nets (19-12) routed the Los Angeles Lakers (22-8) 109-98.  LeBron James reached his 35,000th career points while he left the court with 32 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for the Lakers and Kyle Kuzma tapped a double-double 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Jimmy Butler had 13 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for his third consecutive triple-double as the Miami Heat (12-17) prevailed over the Sacramento Kings (12-16) 118-110 to snap back from a three-game losing streak. Bam Adebayo also had a triple-double with 16 points, 10 assists and 12 rebounds, while Tyler Herro lead all players of the Heat with 27 points and Kelly Olynyk added 22.

On the other end of the court, a 25-point performance by Nemanja Bjelica wasn’t enough for the Kings that suffered their fifth consecutive defeat.
