Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 13 rebounds in Saturday’s 131-114 win over the Hornets. Milwaukee opened up a three-game lead on second-place Toronto in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. They rallied after being down as much as 14 points. The Spurs followed up a dismal 1-7 road trip with four straight wins. That included a 111-104 win at Atlanta on Wednesday. The game was closer than the score as the scrappy Hawks wouldn’t quit. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 32 points for San Antonio. The Spurs sit 3 1/2 games ahead of Sacramento for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. They are just a half-game behind Utah along with the Los Angeles Clippers

This, That, and a Dart Throw

The Bucks are 50-16 on the season. Brook Lopez finished with 25 points against the Hornets. Guard Donte DiVincenzo provided a boost off the bench with 11 points in 18 minutes in his second game after returning from a lengthy layoff due to a heel injury. Antetokounmpo had 34 points, 18 rebounds and eight assists in a 135-129 win over the Spurs at home earlier this season. Antetokounmpo went 18-for-18 from the foul line during the two-game homestand.

The Spurs are 37-29 on the season. Aldridge teamed with guard Derrick White to propel the Spurs to the win over the Hawks. White had a huge game with 18 points, nine assists and six blocked shots. White is averaging 14.5 points on 54.3% shooting over his last four games. He also has 18 assists with only two turnovers over his last two.
