Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 for the Bucks, who have already qualified for post-season basketball, while the Lakers have a commanding lead in their conference.

Caris LeVert scored 27 points, recorded 11 rebounds and made 10 assists as the Brooklyn Nets beat the San Antonio Spurs 139-120, Bradley Beal scored 35 as the Washington Wizards overcame the Atlanta Hawks 118-112 and the Phoenix Suns bested the Portland Trail Blazers 127-117.

The Orlando Magic beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 132-118 thanks in part to 28 points and 12 rebounds from Nikola Vucevic, Domantas Sabonis had 24 points and 12 rebounds as the Indiana Pacers defeated the Chicago Bulls 108-102 and Oklahoma City had six players recording double-figures in a 126-103 win for the Thunder over the New York Knicks.
