Bucks' Giannis says no to LeBron, Melo; goes into attack mode

  • Stars showdown gets overshadowed by Bucks’ team effort in victory over Raptors

Elsewhere, D'Angelo Russell scored 29 points as the Brooklyn Nets beat the Toronto Raptors for the first time in more than three years with a 106-105 overtime win. "I think we did a lot of things well enough to win the game, but we just didn't score the ball well enough", said Toronto coach Nick Nurse.

The Raptors and Bucks have already met once this season - a 124-109 Toronto victory - but it was hardly a preview of a potential Eastern Conference finals matchup; Kawhi Leonard and Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Raps' and Bucks' respective two-way superstars, sat out.

Antetokounmpo is now averaging 26.8 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks and could be on his way to his first MVP award if he keeps it up.

The moneyline on the Bucks is +195, while it is -225 for the Raptors.

Meanwhile, Lowry, who has been an important part of Toronto's early-season success, is shooting only 5 of 27 (.185) from 3-point range in his past five games. Point guard Kyle Lowry, who leads the National Basketball Association in assists per game, shot 3-for-20 from three-point range in the three-game stretch, and 4-for-23 overall. They made 41.5 per cent from the field Sunday and shot 4.1 per cent from three-point range. At the other end Siakam can make Antetkounmpo work as well but slowing down the Freak is something we have yet to really see this season. "We have a lot of confidence in ourselves".

Kemba Walker led the way with 25 points as the Hornets kept hold of the lead throughout the game.

Lopez had 16 first-half points, Ibaka and VanVleet topped Toronto with 11 points. Lowry - who hit a combined four of the 23 shots he'd taken in the previous three games - simply couldn't make a shot. They also lead the league in rebounding at 50.5 per game. They are still leading the league with 120 points per game, and the quick three-point renaissance they have gone through under Mike Budenholzer has been very apparent.

Dolphins' Howard to sit out Sunday
At game's end, Gronkowski had given up almost as many yards (three penalties for 25) as he'd gained (three receptions for 26). The last time the Dolphins played the Patriots on September 30, New England rushed for 175 yards in the 38-7 victory.

"Yeah, I've gotta, I was thinking about that tonight, and I just didn't get an opportunity, or just didn't do it, rather", said Lowry.

Milwaukee led 79-74 heading to the fourth and pushed its lead to 85-74.

"Yeah, I've got to", he said. I've got to be a little bit more inside the paint, inside the arc. But that lead was fleeting.

Lowry had zero points and three turnovers, and moments after the narrow loss, the four-time all-star sounded puzzled by his performance. But his three-pointer didn't fall.

Scotiabank Arena in Toronto will host Sunday's game.

For illustration of a situation, Antetokounmpo gave an example of Kevin Durant's training with LeBron James: "I feel like with LeBron and KD [Kevin Durant], KD did that to LeBron..."
