Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 points as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the New York Knicks 119-108 to extend their winning streak this season.
Antetokounmpo had 14 rebounds and nine assists while scoring 30 points for the third time in a row at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
With four wins in a row, the Bucks lead the Eastern Conference.
With their fifth loss in five games, the Los Angeles Lakers matched their worst start in 65 years.
They were defeated 111-102 by the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis, despite Russell Westbrook scoring 18 points in 33 minutes off the bench.
“I’m not mad at how we played tonight. Overall energy was in the right direction, which I’m happy about,” said Westbrook.
“It’s important to get AD (Anthony Davis) back, get guys healthy, get things going. Until then, nobody is going to feel sorry for us. We have to go out and compete and find a way to get a win.”
