  • Giannis Antetokounmpo dismisses MVP talk: 'I don't know if I'm there yet'

Harden continued his unconscious stretch over the last month, pouring in 42 points along with 11 boards and six assists in the defeat. Antetokounmpo registered his first 20-rebound effort of the season in an almost-quiet fashion.

"All I care about is winning", Antetokounmpo said.

The Rockets led by six points at the half, but the Bucks took the lead with a monster third quarter in which they outscored Houston 38-23. "We couldn't get to where we want to go because we couldn't get any stops". The Rockets only shot 37.6 percent from the field while missing 30 3-pointers.

Milwaukee held a 13-point lead with about five minutes left before Houston used an 8-0 run, started by two 3-pointers from Harden, to cut the lead to 107-102. Antetokounmpo, after missing a free throw with 1:39 to play, came out of a timeout and made the second to keep the Bucks ahead by four. The Greek Freak bruised and bullied his way to 27 points and 21 rebounds, getting to the line 14 times.

Harden, whose league-leading scoring average is up to 33.9 points per game after his franchise-record-tying 12th 40-point performance of the season, acknowledged that Antetokounmpo has earned his way into the discussion about who is the best player in the league.

"He's not normal", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. Much of the third-quarter comeback was spearheaded by Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe, and even on a cold night from Khris Middleton, it's clear Milwaukee is far from a one man show.

After the game, Harden was asked if he saw the pass coming. "I think the ball somehow came back into his hands. wish I would have seen it".
