Errant pass from Giannis beans Harden in the face

Harden finished with 41 points, 11 rebounds and six assists while falling short of a dubious triple double with nine turnovers.

Antetokounmpo and Harden will be duking it out for MVP the rest of the season. And he should be, but we've got a lot of basketball left. Antetokounmpo had 27 points and a career-high 21 rebounds in the match.

"They're imposing at the rim", D'Antoni said. After Harden turned the ball over, than regained it with a steal only to miss a three-pointer, Antetokounmpo made sure the next Bucks possession produced some points as he rose to tap in a miss by Khris Middleton. "He and James are up there with a couple of other guys, and it'll sort itself out".

Harden has moved into hallowed ground with his current scoring barrage, as his 14 straight games of 30-plus points ties Hall of Famer (and fellow Rockets legend) Tracy McGrady for the second-longest streak since the ABA/NBA merger.

"He's up there", Harden said.

In fact, due to its significant shelf life, Costco has listed the product under "all emergency foods" on the store's website. Plus, the container is a heavy-duty six-gallon bucket with lid that customers can easily transport and stack.

If Antetokounmpo isn't the front-runner in the MVP conversation, he's on a very condensed shortlist for the top regular-season honor. "He's definitely [elite], just the way he impacts the game".

A Harden rally in the fourth got the Rockets within three points but the point guard paid the price with four missed shots and the Bucks went on to wrap up their seventh win in eight games.

Informed that Lopez declared that the Bucks believe he's the league's best player, Antetokounmpo smiled and joked that the big man is "my No. 1 fan".

"To be honest with you, all I care about right now is getting better, helping my team win". "That s- hurt. I didn't even know what happened".
