Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks (44-26) took on De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings (25-46) in part of the Wednesday NBA slate. The Bucks won this game with 135-126 being the final score.

Thanks to a Wesley Matthews 3-pointer with 1:32 remaining, the Bucks managed to get by the Kings.

When the Bucks have all three of their stars, they’ve been incredibly challenging for NBA teams to defeat. The Kings will be the latest to attempt to get the job done. This was more of the same.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 36 points and 10 rebounds to set the tone. Khris Middleton was spectacular with 32 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists while Jrue Holiday chipped in 21 points and four steals.

De’Aaron Fox finished with 21 points and seven assists but had a rough efficiency night with nine turnovers while shooting 8-23 from the floor. Domantas Sabonis had 22 points while Davion Mitchell and Donte DiVincenzo each added 19 points apiece off the bench.

The Kings made a bold move at the NBA trade deadline to acquire Domantas Sabonis with the intention of making a push for the play-in tournament.

So far, the Sacramento Kings have not received that level of impact since making that trade.

The Milwaukee Bucks took care of business against a losing Western Conference team as they remain in contention for a top seed in the Eastern Conference. On to the next one.
