MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 31 points and Khris Middleton had 25 to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 119-98 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
Antetokounmpo had 17 rebounds and eight assists for Milwaukee, which won for the 16th time in its last 18 games.
Milwaukee improved its NBA-best record to 48-8. Joel Embiid, Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton each had 17 points for the 76ers, who fell to 9-20 on the road.
Embiid shot just 5 for 18. The 76ers lost All-Star point guard Ben Simmons early in the first quarter due to back tightness.
