Apart from Tomfoolery, Antetokounmpo enjoys its best annual statistics in the regular 2019-20 National Basketball Association season, averaging 30.8 points, 13.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 blocks per game.

Antetokounmpo needed only 14 minutes on the court to record another double-double, finishing with 29 points and 15 rebounds. The Bucks also hold a 12-game winning streak.

"I don't feel we came in here with the idea we could beat this team", Fizdale said. "I don't feel like we came into this game believing we could win this game and that was what was most disappointing. They want you to get out of your game, and whenever you come in Detroit, you expect that". "We never took a real position".

The Bucks improved to 19-3 - tied for best record in the league with the Western Conference-leading Los Angeles Lakers, who beat the Utah Jazz 121-96 in Salt Lake City.

The Timberwolves led 93-91 with 7:19 remaining when the Mavericks made three-pointers on five of their next six possessions to seize the momentum. "Elfrid Payton's running right now and the team is rooting him on", Fizdale said, pointing to the other side of the gym where Payton was running sprints.

"At that point, I was, like, tired", Antetokounmpo said. "Nobody relaxes. We show up and do our job".

By halftime, the game was well out of reach as the Knicks faced their largest deficit of the season after trailing by 27 points, but a first-half dunk by teammate Khris Middleton brought a smile to his and teammate George Hill's faces when they rewatched the reaction from the bench. "We'll own it. we'll watch it and we'll get ready for another very good basketball team".

The Knicks (4-17) posed little challenge as they shot just 4 of 24 in the first period and trailed 33-15 after one. With a 7-5 lead early on in the first quarter, Giannis Antetokounmpo caught a pass at the top of the key. Thanasis Antetokounmpo, formerly a member of the Knicks, finished with 10 points and three assists. They scored more than 125 points for the second consecutive outing, a feat they last accomplished in November 2018 against the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks.

Last season, the Bucks were 15-6 through 21 games, but the 18-3 matches the franchise's best ever start through 21 games with the 1970-71 and 1971-72 teams.

Forward Blake Griffin scored 24 points on Tuesday but may sit out tonight as he continues to be rested on the second night of back-to-back games. He averaged 14.3 points in his three games as a reserve, after being set aside for seven games with a bruised left thigh. "He has a great feeling and is so generous". "In a competitive game, it's going to happen", Pistons coach Dwane Casey said. "Unless something changes he will travel with us and we're hopeful he will play Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time, at Detroit)". The MVP has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Month for October and November.
