No let up from NBA-leading Milwaukee

Giannis Antetokounmpo was short of his season points average in Milwaukee's win at Orlando

A slow start didn't help Giannis Antetokounmpo's shot at NBA history but the Milwaukee Bucks are hardly a one-man show.

Khris Middleton hit a three-pointer less than 20 seconds into the game and the team with the league's best record never trailed on Saturday night in a 112-95 victory over Orlando Magic.

It's the 13th time the Bucks have led from wire-to-wire this season as they improved their record to 45-7.

Antetokounmpo had 19 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists but fell short of becoming the first player in league history with at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in six consecutive games.

Centre Brook Lopez led the Bucks with 23 points, including a perfect five-from-five three-point attempts.

Nikola Vucevic led the Magic with 21 points and 14 rebounds and they hang on to eight place in the Eastern Conference despite being swept 4-0 in their season series by the Bucks.

Anthony Davis enjoyed a team-high 27 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to a 125-120 win at Golden State.

LeBron James chipped in with 22 points, eight rebounds and a team-high 11 assists in the ninth win from their last 11 road games.

Marquese Chriss went for a season-high 26 for the Warriors, while Andrew Wiggins had 24 on debut.

Jamal Murray scored 36 points, Nikola Jokic added 23 and visiting Denver Nuggets completed a 117-108 drubbing of Phoenix.

Murray shot a blistering 14 of 17 from the floor, including 6 of 8 from 3-point range, while Deandre Ayton had 28 points and 19 rebounds for the Suns.

In Sacramento, Buddy Hield hit nine of 10 from outside the arc while scoring 31 points off the bench as the Kings notched a 122-102 victory over San Antonio.

Harrison Barnes recorded 25 points and seven rebounds as the hosts won for the sixth time in eight games.

DeMar DeRozan scored 14 points for the Spurs before being ejected midway through the fourth quarter.

Julius Randle scored 17 points to help New York Knicks secure their season-best fourth-straight victory, 95-92 over Detroit Pistons.

Detroit's Australian centre Thon Maker started the game well with seven points in the opening 10 minutes but failed to add to that total.

Seth Curry scored 26 points in his return to Charlotte to guide Dallas Mavericks to a 116-100 victory over the Hornets.

Australian Ryan Broekhoff chimed in with two-three pointers for six points in 16 minutes for the Mavs - who snapped a two-game slide.
