    Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James led the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers to victories in the NBA.

    Bucks forward Antetokounmpo notched 41 points, 17 rebounds and five assists to end the Houston Rockets' seven-game winning streak with a 123-114 success.

    James scored 33 points as the Lakers cruised to a 116-95 win over hosts Oklahoma City Thunder.

    The 36-year-old helped LA bounce back from defeat by the Memphis Grizzlies.

    James became the fifth player in NBA history to reach 100 triple-doubles in that loss and he made his presence felt from the start against Thunder, ending the first half with 23 points.

    Avery Bradley impressed at both ends of the court for the Lakers as he posted a season-high 22 points.

    Antetokounmpo was similarly potent for the Bucks and became the franchise's all-time blocks leader in an impressive response to Wednesday's defeat by Miami Heat.

    Khris Middleton added 21 points for the Bucks as they outlasted their spirited Houston hosts.
