INDIANAPOLIS — Giannis Antetokounmpo started fast and finished strong, picking up a triple-double to help the Milwaukee Bucks rally late for a 106-97 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.

Antetokounmpo had 33 points, 19 rebounds and 11 assists, leading the Bucks back from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit. NBA-leading Milwaukee has won eight of nine overall and seven straight on the road – its longest road winning streak since 1984-85.

76ERS 126, KNICKS 111: Joel Embiid had 26 points and 14 rebounds, and visiting Philadelphia handed New York its 18th straight loss.

Joel Embiid was fined $25,000 by the NBA for public criticism of referees that included profanity after Philadelphia’s 112-109 home loss to Boston on Tuesday.

RAPTORS 129, WIZARDS 120: Pascal Siakam scored a career-high 44 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, OG Anunoby added a career-best 22 points, and Toronto beat visiting Washington for its sixth straight win.

Toronto won without All-Star Kawhi Leonard (sore knee).

CAVALIERS: Kevin Love sat out Wednesday night’s game against Brooklyn, but plans to increase his playing time following the All-Star break as he returns from foot surgery.

Kanter averaged 14 points and 10.1 rebounds for the Knicks in his eighth NBA season.

Caboclo was on a 10-day contract after starting the season with the G League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
