Cavaliers 100-112: Giannis Antetokounmpo is hopelessly alone

Giannis Antetokounmpo did everything he could against the Cavaliers, but he got no help from anyone as the Bucks lost 112-100 in Milwaukee.

Shortly before Doc Rivers arrived, the Bucks were defeated at home by the Cavaliers 112-100, falling to 31-14 and losing ground in the battle atop the Eastern Conference, while the Sixers edge closer to the Stags.

The Cavaliers, who continue to play without their starting goalkeeper (Darius Garland) and their starting forward (Evan Mobley), led 27-16.

The Bucks' next opponent is the Pelicans, in the early hours of Sunday (28/1) at 03:00 at Fiserv Forum.

Giannis Antetokounmpo battled hard on the floor, scoring 22 points on 9/13 shooting and 4/9 shooting. He also had 10 rebounds, while the trio had double touches, as he provided 9 assists in 35:47.

The Greek star was alone while Lillard, Lopez and Middleton scored… baskets.
