Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks edged the Boston Celtics at home (98-97) and are still having the best record in the NBA (44-14).

It was a close game from the opening tip, with Milwaukee coming back from an 11-point deficit in the first half.

Although the Bucks were in front by nine, Boston turned things around, but Kyrie Irving missed the game-winning shot at the buzzer and the Celtics were defeated.

The “Greek Freak” led the winners with 30 points, 13 rebounds and six assists, as Khris Middleton added 15.

Five players scored in double figures for the losing squad, with Irving having a team-high 22 points.

Milwaukee improved to 44-14, whereas Boston dropped to 37-22.
