On Tuesday, the Milwaukee Bucks put even more distance between their hold on the top spot in the Eastern Conference and its closest challenger by defeating the Toronto Raptors 108-97 on the road.
Giannis Antetokounmpo delivered a 19-point, 19-rebound, eight-assist performance to help the Bucks swat down the team that sent them home in last year's NBA Playoffs.
Khris Middleton added 22 points, and the Bucks got to the free-throw line 36 times, making 30 freebies, to take home the victory.
Milwaukee also had a plus-10 in rebounding, assisting in the winning effort.
Milwaukee returns home to take on Oklahoma City on Friday, before heading back out on the road for a pair of games next Sunday and Monday.
The Bucks are now a full eight games up on Toronto in the Eastern Conference standings with 24 games to play in the regular season.
