After a 119-91 whipping of the new Clippers super team in Los Angeles, the Milwaukee Bucks improve to 20-3 on the season, tying the Los Angeles Lakers for the best record in the league.

Kawhi Leonard might have officially disqualified himself from the conversation for best player in the league. Playing against reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Leonard was held to 17 points, five rebounds and four assists. If Leonard is going to miss an excess of games every season, then he needs to be dynamite during the games he participates in.

Antetokounmpo kept his status, scoring 27 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in only 26 minutes of play. For the season, Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.8 points, 13.1 rebounds (yeah, that’s correct), 5.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks per game this season. With the Bucks at 20-3 on the season while he is averaging those numbers, Antetokounmpo is arguably the leading candidate for the MVP race.

The Bucks are the highest scoring offense in the league, averaging 121 points per game as a team. At the same time, the Bucks have the 10th best defense in the league, allowing 107.4 points per game. The point differential for the Bucks is by far the best in the league at 13.6, which is four points ahead of the Lakers, who are second with 9.6.

The NBA playoffs this season will be so matchup dependent that any team will have a chance during a series. The Bucks, who are playing as the best team in the league, could easily lose to the Philadelphia 76ers, who are a hot mess, because the Sixers size presents a lot of problems for the Bucks and Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo will need to continue to work on his range and three-point shooting, which is now at a respectable 31%.
