With Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden were Wednesday evening two favorites for the MVP title and opposite to each other in the NBA. Antetokounmpo went with Milwaukee to the longest end in Houston. It was 109-116 for the Bucks.
Antetokounmpo was in the Toyota Center, the Rockets good for 27 points and 21 rebounds. Harden, the best player (MVP) of 2018, scored 42 points behind his name but that was not enough for his team for a defeat to protect. The Rockets had their ten previous home games all won.
Milwaukee recorded a sixth victory in seven matches and once again took the lead in the Eastern Conference over Toronto. Houston is sixth in the west.
The LA Lakers should still be without the injured LeBron James. In the game against Detroit took Kyle Kuzma with verve the role of LBJ. He scored 41 points, a personal record, and had a very large share in the 113-100 victory for the Lakers, who are eighth in the Western Conference.
