For the second contest in a row, we got to see Giannis absolutely dominate the opposition on Saturday night for the Milwaukee Bucks. Taking on the lowly Orlando Magic, who are now 4-13 on the season, he was able to score 32 points and grab 20 rebounds in a 117-108 home win. They won by that margin despite a closing quarter that saw Orlando outscore them by 16, showing just how in charge they were in the opening three periods.
Giannis made 15 of 23 free throws and was 8-16 from the field in the performance. Speaking of performances, that was what Damian Lillard was putting on for the Portland Trail Blazers as they took down the Philadelphia 76ers 118-111. Lillard had a season-high 39, taking full advantage of a lack of Joel Embiid in the visiting lineup as well as all of his opportunities from the charity stripe. Lillard made all 14 of his free throw attempts as well as draining five three-pointers as he shot 10-21 overall on the evening. Portland is now 9-8 on the season, but their home record is much more impressive at 8-1 thus far.
