Two of the Eastern Conference’s finest went head-to-head on Wednesday night as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Ben Simmons both delivered triple-doubles in the Milwaukee Bucks 123-108 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
Simmons showed no signs of the lower-back soreness that had kept him out of the 76ers’ defeat to Detroit Pistons 24 hours earlier as he scored 14 points along with 11 assists and 13 rebounds.
However, the Australian was outshone by Antetokoumpo as the ‘Greek Freak’ stuffed his stat line with 32 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists.
