Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with a double-double in Milwaukee's 129-108 victory.

The Milwaukee Bucks had the perfect response to their loss against the Denver Nuggets on Friday, disposing of the Phoenix Suns 129-108.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was already in all-star form as he posted 30 points and 19 rebounds in the dominant victory.

Although Devin Booker did his best to try and keep Phoenix in the game with a 32-point haul, it was never going to be enough to overcome a rampant Milwaukee team.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors showed why the were the second-best team in the Easter Conference with a 129-102 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

Terence Davis scored 31 off the bench to help keep the Raptors in touch with the first-placed Bucks.

James Harden fended off strong efforts from Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson to lift the Houston Rockets to an eight-point win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Harden finished with 40 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists as the Rockets won 117-109.

And it was a tight contest in Detroit where the Pistons defeated the Denver Nuggets 128-123.

Nikola Jokic's 39 points ultimately was not enough to get Denver across the line in the high-scoring affair.
