"I definitely think it's our belief inside this locker room, and a lot just around the league, that we have the best player in the league right here", Lopez said.

A dominant all-around performance in the Milwaukee Bucks' 116-109 road win over reigning MVP James Harden's Houston Rockets on Wednesday could have provided Giannis Antetokounmpo a massive platform to begin campaigning for the NBA's most prestigious individual honor. The Greek Freak bruised and bullied his way to 27 points and 21 rebounds, getting to the line 14 times.

The Rockets went scoreless over a four-minute stretch that started in the third and extended to the fourth. Harden finished the first half with 23 points, 17 came in the second quarter. He's averaging 55.4 FanDuel points per game overall this season.

In-form Luka Doncic recorded 30 points as the Dallas Mavericks overcame the Phoenix Suns 104-94, while in Memphis, the Grizzlies stopped a six-game losing streak thanks to 26 points from Marc Gasol in their 96-86 win over the San Antonio Spurs. The Rockets battled back and got within three when James Harden hit a floater with 2:37 to play, but he missed back-to-back threes on the Rockets next possession that would've tied the game. That run included a 9-0 run in the last 1:19 of the quarter highlighted by a tip-in at the buzzer by Antetokounmpo. Houston shot 18 of 48 on 3-pointers.

The ball bounced hard off his face back to Antetokounmpo, who found Ersan Ilyasova for a three.
