Giannis Antetokounmpo was outstanding scoring 48 points (18-of-31 shooting) to go along with 14 rebounds. Kyle Korver was solid scoring 17 (6-of-8 shooting) with 5 threes. The Lakers, for their part, will want to move on from a 102-105 loss to the Indiana Pacers in which Dwight Howard recorded 20 points (10-of-10 shooting) and 6 rebounds.
Will Giannis Antetokounmpo replicate his monstrous performance in the last game’s loss to the Mavs? This will be the first meeting between the teams this season.
