After defeating Washington at home, Milwaukee (34-21) began its road trip by beating Portland on Saturday and the Los Angeles Clippers the following night.

The Lakers (26-28) are coming off a 122-115 overtime win over New York on Saturday. LeBron James returned to the lineup after a five-game absence with a knee injury and recorded a triple-double.

The Bucks last faced the Lakers on Nov. 17. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a season-high 47 points to lead the defending champions to a 109-102 victory.

Bucks have a 30-point lead.

For the first time in the game, the Milwaukee Buckshave a 30-point lead against the Lakers. They aren't even breaking a sweat.

Bucks increase their lead even further.

At the first timeout during the third quarter, the Bucks increased their lead to 27 points. Lakers don't seem to respond to Milwaukee's superiority.

After a well-deserved rest, it's time for the third quarter to begin.

Bucks lead by 22 at halftime.

What a clinic from the Milwaukee Bucks during the first half of the game, they are shooting from all over the place. If the Lakers want to make a comeback, they don't only need to score many points but also stop the Bucks' offense. Hard task but not impossible.

Russ gets entangled with Giannis.

With the Bucks winning by 21, Russell Westbrook gets entangled with Giannis as the situation seems to escalate. However, the Bucks star cools down the situation.

LeBron seems frustrated with the ball in his hands.

LeBron James knows the Lakers are getting dominated by the Bucks, who are putting up a shooting clinic in Los Angeles. Hopefully, the second half is different for the Lakers.

Lakers lag too far behind.

Lakers fans are starting to get restless with the Bucks taking a massive 20-point lead in a dismal first-half display from the Lake Show.

Second quarter is underway.

We are back in business for the second quarter between Lakers and Bucks!

End of the 1st quarter.

As it was probably expected, the Milwaukee Bucks are leading by 14 at the end of the first quarter. Lakers need to do a lot more if they want to come back to fight for the win.

Pressure seems too hard for Westbrook.

Russell Westbrook seems way too distracted to continue playing with this team. First he stepped on the sideline and then he made an unexpected travel. Lakers are losing by 14 already and Russ still seems frustrated with his game.

At the first time out, Giannis is taking the Bucks to the first important lead of the game with 11 points and 6 minutes left on the clock.
