Giannis Antetokounmpo registered his 16th double-double this campaign by scoring 28 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in 27 minutes to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 104 – 90 win over the Detroit Pistons and the 13-3 in the NBA regular season.

It was the 16th double-double in a row for Giannis and the seventh straight victory for Milwaukee. The reigning MVP also had three assists, two steals and one block.

Bucks‘ Thanasis Antetokounmpo and Dragan Bender, plus Pistons‘ Sekou Doumbouya spent two scoreless minutes on the court each.

“28” was also the magic number for Bojan Bogdanovic. The Croatian forward dropped this number of points as the Utah Jazz beat the New Orleans Pelicans 128 – 120 at home to capture their third win in a row.

Bogdanovic also posted five rebounds and five assists. Rudy Gobert was out due to a left ankle injury.
