Giannis Antetokounmpo Downplays MVP Praise After Win Against Houston

Giannis Antetokounmpo dismisses MVP talk: 'I don't know if I'm there yet'

In the end, the Bucks' supporting cast came through with flying colors, whether that was the stupendous offensive performance of Malcolm Brogdon, the all-purpose defending of Brook Lopez or second-year wing Sterling Brown standing vital off the bench.

"He's not normal", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. "I don't know if I'm there yet, but I'm going to do whatever it takes to get there, because that's what I want to be". "They did a good job and it costs us some turnovers, and we just weren't real sharp and we tried to force some things up underneath the basket".

In his 38 appearances with the Bucks this season, The Greek Freak has racked up averages of 26.6 points on 58.1 percent shooting from the field, 12.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals in 33.6 minutes per outing.

CJ McCollum scored 24 points as Damian Lillard reached his fifth double-double of the season with 16 points and 10 assists.

Still without injured LeBron James, the Lakers improved to 3-5 as Kuzma used a huge third quarter to hit four three-pointers and push his team to a 113-100 win.

The Bucks were down by 7 later in the quarter before using a 17-1 spurt to end the quarter and take a 92-83 lead into the fourth. Eric Gordon missed his fifth straight game with a bruised right knee.

The ball bounced hard off his face back to Antetokounmpo, who found Ersan Ilyasova for a three. Harden fell slowly to the court after he was hit but got up quickly and seemed to be OK. It was insane because it was so hard ...

After the game, Harden was asked if he saw the pass coming. "That s- hurt. I didn't even know what happened".
