Thunder coast past Bucks in battle of MVP favourites

Thunder coast past Bucks in battle of MVP favourites”

When the reigning NBA MVP didn't take it to the hoop himself, he found Steven Adams in the paint for an easy bucket.

Kiwi centre Steven Adams registered his third double-double of the young National Basketball Association season as the Oklahoma City Thunder crushed the Milwaukee Bucks on their home floor.

Meanwhile, Giannis Antetokounmpo - who's been so sublime early in the season that his MVP odds have been shortened to an astoundingly low 4/5 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook - shined for the Bucks, per usual, with 28 points on 9 of 14 shooting, eight rebounds and three assists.

The Thunder were balanced on offense, Paul George leading the way with 20 points, followed by Carmelo Anthony and reserve Jerami Grant with 17 apiece, Steven Adams with 14, and Westbrook's 12.

While the presence of the other two stars means Westbrook no longer has to carry the team on his shoulders throughout entire games and average a triple-double for the season, he hasn't slowed much with 20.8 points, 12.2 assists and 9.8 rebounds per night through the first six games of the season.

The Pacers (4-3) scored the first nine points and built a 55-30 lead at the half. He finished with a career-high 16 rebounds in addition to 12 points and five assists.

Rookie De'Aaron Fox led Sacramento with 18 points, four rebounds and five assists, Zach Randolph had 12 and five rebounds, and Skal Labissiere finished with eight and eight rebounds.

Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder were met with little resistance as they kept attacking the lane. Phoenix seemed out of it after Ronda Hollis-Jefferson's basket gave Brooklyn a 106-98 lead with 6:35 left in the fourth.

In an impressive showing by the "Big Three" at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, the team defeated the young Milwaukee Bucks in one of the four exciting matchups.

Warren and James combined on a 7-0 run that closed the lead to 106-101 with 6:15, forcing the Nets to call a timeout.

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Julius Randle scored 17 points, Lonzo Ball added 13 and the Lakers beat the Pistons. Brandon Ingram and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each had 13 points.

George scored 20 points, hitting 4 of 8 from 3-point range.
