The Milwaukee Bucks emerged victorious in the battle of the NBA’s two best teams, beating the L.A. Lakers with a true statement performance.

Another title contender from Los Angeles came to visit Fiserv Forum, and the Milwaukee Bucks once again prevailed with an impressive victory against the Lakers.

This game may ultimately have been closer than the Clippers’ victory, but the Bucks did have similarly large leads at times in this game, and were essentially in control from very early in the first quarter and never really looked like letting it slip.

That sense of control came from the Bucks’ strong overall contributions from across the roster, in addition to the ever-reliable brilliance of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

In the end, for all that LeBron James and Anthony Davis offered the Lakers, they didn’t have enough meaningful support beyond that, even with Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope having very strong performances from the starting lineup.

With the two best records in the NBA on the line, the Bucks picked up a win that set them apart, but their performance also left little doubt that they are currently NBA’s best team, in the truest sense of that word.

Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the individual performances of Milwaukee’s players against the Lakers.
