VIDEO: Giannis Antetokounmpo double-doubles vs. the Knicks

Between the "excitement" of the Larry Sanders Saga and season-ending surgeries for Jabari Parker and Damien Inglis, you'd have been forgiven for forgetting that the Bucks' played actual basketball on Sunday.

But yes, the Bucks did play, they did win, and Giannis Antetokounmpo delivered his second double-double of the season -- the first in Brooklyn, the second in Manhattan -- in Milwaukee's 95-82 win over the hapless Knicks. So hey, not everything is bad and awkward, OK?

Though he ran into a bit of foul trouble along the way, Giannis did a little bit of everything on Sunday night: 16 points on 6/9 shooting including a straightaway catch-and-shoot three, a career-best-tying 12 boards, and a seventh straight game with at least two blocks. He took advantage of some nice interior passing and some indifferent Knicks defending in the fourth, but otherwise the Knicks made him work for his numbers.

And not a bad place to do it either, as his big night came in front of his older brother Thanasis (who came down from the Knicks' D-League affiliate in Westchester), Bucks owners Marc Lasry and Wes Edens, and all the people who still have the intestinal fortitude to pay to watch Knicks games.
