Harden received a very wayward pass from Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo in Milwaukee's 116-109 win on Wednesday. Antetokounmpo had 27 points and a career-high 21 rebounds in the match. The lead would grow to five when Rivers started the second quarter with a pair of free throws, but Brogdon's layup with 8:34 left before halftime tied the game, though, the Rockets scored the next seven points and would lead by as many as 10.

Fans have taken the opportunity to mock Houston Rockets star James Harden after he was floored by a basketball to the face.

Giannis finished with 59.7 FanDuel points in the win.

"I definitely think it's our belief inside this locker room, and a lot just around the league, that we have the best player in the league right here", Bucks big man Brook Lopez said of Antetokounmpo after Wednesday's road win over the Houston Rockets, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

Harden's brilliance in the fourth quarter allowed the Rockets to slash a 15-point deficit to three with 2:37 remaining, when he hit a tough floater.

Harden made history in the loss by recording his 14th straight 30-point game. Gerald Green chipped in 16 points off the bench. But when the ball bounced back to Antetokounmpo, who immediately found Ersan Ilyasova for an open 3-pointer, it confirmed that it was the Greek Freak's night.

But beyond those two headlining the show of potential title contenders, the victor of the contest was always going to come down to which team's supporting cast came through more consistently to ease the burden off of their superstar's shoulders.

"I didn't even know what happened", Harden said.
