Bucks keep slate clean

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — The Milwaukee Bucks didn’t miss a beat with two-time National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo sidelined for the first time this season, pushing their record to 9-0 Saturday with a 108-94 victory over Oklahoma City.

Antetokounmpo was listed as out with left knee soreness a night after he posted his first triple-double of the season in a victory at Minnesota.

Brook Lopez helped fill the void with 25 points as the Bucks improved on their already best-ever start to the season.

Lopez connected on 10 of 16 shots from the floor to pace the Bucks, who had 17 three-pointers.

Bobby Portis and Jrue Holiday both posted double-doubles and the Bucks led by as many as 24.

De’Aaron Fox was the hero in Orlando, draining a three-pointer from near half-court as time expired to lift the Kings to a 126-123 overtime victory over the Magic in Orlando.

Fox scored a game-high 37 points. That included the first six in overtime, but they were tied 123-123 with 2.5 seconds left in the extra session after Orlando’s Chume Okeke seized upon a Kings turnover and drove for a dunk.

“I just tried to get as in front of the basket as I possibly could, and just tried to get it up,” Fox said.

“It felt good, and it went in.”

The Kings had out-scored the Magic 36-12 to erase a 20-point third-quarter deficit. They traded the lead five times in the fourth, with Fox’s bank shot tying it up in the final second.
