Antetokounmpo's 32 points lead Bucks over Kings 116-98

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Wary of a letdown on the finale of a six-game trip, Giannis Antetokounmpo took it upon himself early to make sure that the Milwaukee Bucks would be departing for home with a smile on their faces.

Antetokounmpo had a huge first half and finished with 32 points, 13 rebounds and six assists for the streaking Bucks, who cruised to a 116-98 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

The win moved the youthful Bucks into a tie with Indiana for the sixth spot, one game behind fifth-place Atlanta in the tight Eastern Conference playoff race. The Bucks have been the NBA's hottest team the past three weeks, winning 10 of 12 games.
