Giannis Antetokounmpo poured in a career high 33 points, but the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 115-100 on Thursday night.
The third-year pro from Greece scored most of his points in the paint and he guarded both LeBron James and Kevin Love defensively.
The Bucks trailed by 15 at halftime but drew within five late in the third quarter before getting into foul trouble. The Bucks committed 29 fouls, six more than their team average, which ranks second-worst in the NBA.
LeBron led Cleveland with 27 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Kevin Love added 22 points and 15 rebounds for the Cavs, who made up for their double-overtime loss to the Bucks last Saturday night in Milwaukee.
Cleveland improved to 9-3, while the Bucks fell to 5-7. Milwaukee wraps up its road trip at Indiana on Saturday night.
