Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Milwaukee Bucks pounded the Orlando Magic 123 - 91 on Friday night. While the reigning NBA MVP was great once again, DiVincenzo scored 14 points in his most extensive action so far this season. He played two minutes in the Bucks ' first four games and had not taken a shot.

Bucks have done everything right to keep Giannis for good

  Bucks have done everything right to keep Giannis for good Though Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't want to talk about his supermax extension right now, the Bucks have done everything right so far.Just ask the Milwaukee Bucks, whom the NBA fined $50,000 last month after general manager Jon Horst said the Bucks planned to offer Giannis Antetokounmpo a supermax contract a year from now.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 29 points, 14 rebounds and six assists, while four other Milwaukee players reached double-digit scoring. The Bucks now move to 3-2 on the season and will fly home for the second game in a back-to-back against the Toronto Raptors at Fiserv Forum. With that in mind, Sterling Brown and Donte DiVincenzo appeared to be the automatic candidates to slide up in the deep Milwaukee rotation despite only combining to see eight minutes of court time in the season's early going. With the Bucks surrendering an early double-digit lead to the Magic , it was Sterling

ORLANDO – If you have been wondering where the blowout wins have been for the Milwaukee Bucks, that question has been answered. Apparently, they were at the Amway Center all along and the Bucks just hadn't gotten there yet.

In easily their most complete game of the young season, the Bucks steamrolled the Orlando Magic on the way to a 123-91 victory on Friday night. Milwaukee's defense was coherent and consistent, while its offense got numerous contributions and asserted its will inside and out.

BOX SCORE: BUCKS 123, MAGIC 91

Simply put, the Bucks looked a lot more like the team they expect to be.

“That’s a good win," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "I liked our competitiveness, our effort defensively, our energy defensively; just our energy, in general, was in a good place. Hopefully, we see more of this and it’s what we expect of each other.”

  'I’ve never used those words in my life': Giannis says Harvard misquoted him Giannis Antetokounmpo says he was misquoted in Harvard study on his staying in MilwaukeeThe full report, which the Journal Sentinel received from the Bucks last week and reported on in a story this week, included the following quote attributed to Antetokounmpo:

Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Milwaukee Bucks pounded the Orlando Magic 123 - 91 on Friday night. While the reigning NBA MVP was great once again, DiVincenzo scored 14 points in his most extensive action so far this season. He played two minutes in the Bucks ’ first four games and had not taken a shot.

Giannis Antetokounmpo got to the rim almost at will, particularly in the second half, to lead the way with 29 points on 10 of 16 shooting along with 14 rebounds and six assists. Eric Bledsoe chipped in with 18 points, six rebounds and six assists while Khris Middleton was 7 of 9 from the field for 16 points of his own. Donte DiVincenzo led a 57-point effort from the bench with 14 points.

BOX SCORE: Bucks 123, Magic 91

As well as the Bucks played, it didn't start that way. Orlando made eight of its first nine shots to take a 20-7 lead. But Milwaukee's malaise – and the Magic's hot shooting – didn't last long. The Bucks clamped down from that point on, embarking on what would amount to a 37-7 run in about a quarter's length of time to take firm grasp on the game for good.

The Bucks' oft-maligned defense was notably improved, with better communication, stronger on-ball coverage, on-time help and multiple efforts. Players dived to the floor often for steals and loose balls, helping ignite the offense at the other end.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Knicks coach David Fizdale knew his struggling team faced a huge challenge Monday night against the streaking Milwaukee Bucks . New York stumbled at the start and never had a chance as Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks won their 12th straight game in a 132-88 romp. Antetokounmpo needed only 14 minutes on the court to record another double-double, finishing with

“I thought the activity just on the ball, weak-side awareness and then just covering and scrambling for each other, it felt like we swarmed the defensive boards, guards were flying in," Budenholzer said. "Everyone was active, everyone was engaged and that’s what it takes to be good defensively.”

Once Antetokounmpo decided to take over in the third quarter with drive after strong drive, it was clear that there would be no second-half letdown. Not this time.

The Magic got within 15 points early in the fourth quarter, but that's about when Antetokounmpo put it away. He came up with a steal and pushed to the other end, somehow gliding from beyond the three-point line toward the paint without need for a dribble, absorbing contact from Terrence Ross on the way to an and-one.

He followed that up with a nine-footer and an emphatic dunk, essentially announcing the game was a wrap.

“It means a lot," Antetokounmpo said of the runaway victory. "Obviously, we came out, played hard, played together, defended really well. I think everybody was a little bit upset from the previous loss we had against Boston, so everybody came out and you could see they had that extra juice. We’ve got to build off this one.”

Bucks 115, Raptors 105: Another big lead, another struggle, another win

  Bucks 115, Raptors 105: Another big lead, another struggle, another win Giannis Antetokounmpo did a little bit of everything, finishing with 36 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists. He made key plays at both ends of the floor as the Raptors threatened in the fourth quarter.The Bucks raced out to a 12-1 lead as the Raptors started ice cold, missing their first seven shots before Kyle Lowry hit a three-pointer.The Bucks were whistled for five fouls within the first five minutes, including two against starting guard Eric Bledsoe. But just like in their game against the Magic on Friday night, Milwaukee's bench contributed early and often.

Getting a rest

Bucks wing Kyle Korver was not with the team in Orlando on Friday and was instead given the day off to rest. The 38-year-old sharpshooter averaged 9.3 points – while making 10 of 20 three-pointers – in 16.8 minutes per game over Milwaukee first three contests.

“We’ll probably just kind of read it and adjust," Budenholzer said of resting Korver. "I think it’s safe to say there’s a good chance that when we have opportunities or it makes sense we’re going to be, I think, conscientious of keeping him healthy and keeping him feeling great. I’m really happy with how he’s playing; I just want to keep it that way.”

Being conscious of Korver's workload could include missing one game of back-to-back sets. The Bucks will play back-to-back games 11 times this season, with Friday's game in Orlando and Saturday's at Fiserv Forum against the Toronto Raptors representing their first of the season.

Thunderous arrival

Giannis' older brother, Thanasis, was active for the first time this season with Korver out. He certainly made his first playing time as a member of the Bucks memorable.

With about 30 seconds remaining, Thanasis drove to the hoop where he threw down a monster, two-handed dunk over Wes Iwundu for his first two points as a member of the Bucks. His exuberance and Iwundu's displeasure with it earned technical fouls for both players, but it didn't put a damper on the moment for the Antetokounmpo brothers.

Rockets' D'Antoni exudes calm despite lame-duck status: 'It's not going to change the way I coach'

  Rockets' D'Antoni exudes calm despite lame-duck status: 'It's not going to change the way I coach' Mike D'Antoni is not under contract beyond this season, but he won't let that affect him. Especially when he believes Houston has a true title shot.It also includes coach Mike D’Antoni, who will patrol the sidelines without any assurances on where he will coach after this season.

"It was a good bucket, it was a nice bucket," Giannis said. "For a first bucket as a Buck, that was a nice way to introduce yourself. ...

"Sleeping next to each other from back when I can remember, to see him on an NBA court dunking on guys, obviously I'm happy about it; gets me excited."
