The Washington Post Sunday - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL - AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Gian­nis An­te­tok­oun­mpo scored 33 points to help Mil­wau­kee over­come Lonzo Ball’s triple­dou­ble in the Bucks’ 98-90 win over the vis­it­ing Los An­ge­les Lak­ers on Satur­day night.

Ball be­came the youngest player in NBA his­tory to record a triple-dou­ble when he had 17 points, 13 as­sists and 12 re­bounds. At 20 years and 15 days, he bested LeBron James by four days to be­come the youngest to ac­com­plish the feat.

Ball had 11 points, 10 as­sists and six re­bounds in the sec­ond half. He made just three of 12 shots in a loss at Wash­ing­ton on Thurs­day, but fin­ished 7 for 12 and made 3 of 5 shots from three-point range against the Bucks.

WAR­RIORS 135, 76ERS 114: In Oak­land, Calif., Kevin Du­rant re­turned from miss­ing one game with a leg in­jury to fin­ish with 29 points to lead Golden State to its sixth con­sec­u­tive vic­tory.

Dray­mond Green con­trib­uted 10 points, 10 re­bounds, seven as­sists, five blocks and two steals. Stephen Curry added 22 points and nine as­sists to sur­pass the 4,000-as­sist mark for his ca­reer, and Klay Thomp­son scored 23 as the War­riors pulled away.

CAVA­LIERS 111, MAV­ER­ICKS 104: Kevin Love had 29 points and 15 re­bounds and Kyle Korver scored all 13 of his points in the fourth quar­ter to help Cleve­land win in Dal­las.

The Mav­er­icks were down by as many as 11 points in the fourth quar­ter and cut the lead to one on two oc­ca­sions but could never take the lead.

PEL­I­CANS 111, CLIP­PERS 103: DeMar­cus Cousins had 35 points and 15 re­bounds and An­thony Davis added 25 points and 10 re­bounds to power host New Or­leans.

Jrue Hol­i­day had eight as­sists for New Or­leans, half of the to­tal as­sists gen­er­ated by the en­tire Clip­pers team. The Pel­i­cans also over­came 23 turnovers.

Blake Grif­fin led the Clip­pers with 27 points.

ROCK­ETS 111, GRIZ­ZLIES 96: James Harden scored 38 points to lead Hous­ton past vis­it­ing Mem­phis.

In their pre­vi­ous two meet­ings, Mem­phis held the Rock­ets to 90 and 89 points, the only two times the Rock­ets have been held un­der 100 points this sea­son and Hous­ton’s low­est two scor­ing ef­forts ever un­der Coach Mike D’An­toni.

KNICKS 118, KINGS 91: Kristaps Porzingis re­turned af­ter a one-game ab­sence to score 34 points, Court­ney Lee added 20, and New York cruised to vic­tory.

Enes Kan­ter had 17 points and 13 re­bounds for the Knicks, who have won four straight at Madi­son Square Gar­den.

SPURS 133, BULLS 94: LaMar­cus Aldridge had 21 points and 10 re­bounds, and short­handed San An­to­nio cruised at home while reach­ing a sea­son high in points de­spite miss­ing a third of its ros­ter.

Irv­ing suf­fers fa­cial frac­ture

Bos­ton Celtics point guard Kyrie Irv­ing has a bro­ken bone in his face and is doubt­ful for Sun­day’s game against the Rap­tors.

The team called the frac­ture mi­nor.

Irv­ing left Fri­day night’s game against the Char­lotte Hor­nets in the first quar­ter af­ter tak­ing an in­ad­ver­tent el­bow to the face from team­mate Aron Baynes. Irv­ing was bleed­ing from the nose as he was es­corted to the locker room.
