The Oklahoma team secured a convincing victory against the LA Clippers with a final score of 134:115, ending the guests' impressive streak of nine victories. Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks celebrated a triumphant victory at home against Orlando with a final score of 118:114, led by the great play of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who excelled this time as well.

Kawhi Leonard's absence from the LA Clippers lineup played a key role in their loss, marking the end of their remarkable winning streak. The hosts in Oklahoma took control of the game from the start, leaving no doubt about the outcome.

There were some moments where the course of the game could have been changed, but victory was not missing. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander showed his skills, leading Oklahoma in efficiency with an outstanding performance, scoring 31 points and grabbing eight rebounds.

Chet Holmgren also made a significant contribution with 23 points, seven assists, and six rebounds. It must be admitted that the whole team was interested in the game and that they did their best. With the Clippers, James Harden and Paul George were the best with 23 and 22 points, respectively.

Oklahoma was expected to bring in several young players, but that didn't happen despite the team's significant lead in the final moments.

The Bucks continue to play well

Meanwhile, Milwaukee celebrated its 21st win of the season, cementing its second position in the Eastern standings.

Giannis Antetokounmpo played a key role, delivering an impressive performance with 37 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. Damian Lillard provided excellent support, with 24 points, five steals, and eight turnovers. Once again, this duo made the difference on the field and drove Orlando's defense crazy.

Franz Wagner stood out as the best player in Orlando with 29 points, six rebounds, and assists. It was seen that the Magic wanted to confirm their status as a serious contender, but still, the duo of Antetokounmpo and Lillard was too much of an obstacle for them. Magic will have to wait for another opportunity to achieve another victory.
