Giannis Records a Monstrous Triple-Double, and Vucevic Ends the Nets’ Winning Streak.

Grayson Allen’s 3-pointer with 11.6 seconds left in overtime gave the Milwaukee Bucks a 104-101 victory over the Toronto Raptors, and Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, 10 assists, and a season-high 21 rebounds for his second triple-double of the season.

Antetokounmpo had entered the game having recorded at least 40 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists in each of his previous three games before scoring a career-high 55 points against Washington on Tuesday night. Against Toronto, the two-time MVP went 7 for 18, converting on 1 of 3 three-point attempts and 15 of 21 free throws.

The Brooklyn Nets saw their 12-game winning run ended by the Chicago Bulls 121-112 on Wednesday night. This was Brooklyn’s first loss since December 4th.

Despite Kevin Durant’s 44 points on 15-of-22 shooting for the Nets, the Bulls were dominant from the opening tip and were able to end the NBA’s longest winning run. Despite playing in a reserve role, Nikola Vucevic, a big man from Montenegro, scored 21 points and grabbed 13 boards.

The injury-plagued defending champs saw their greatest victory streak of the season snapped by Detroit. NBA Finals MVP Stephen Curry has missed 10 games due to a dislocated left shoulder and will be re-evaluated on Saturday, two weeks after his initial checkup. Bojan Bogdanovic, a Croatian, had an outstanding game, scoring 29 points.
