Antetokounmpo and Harden will be duking it out for MVP the rest of the season. The Bucks built a comfortable lead by the midpoint of the fourth quarter, only for Harden to catch fire and make it a one-possession game with a couple of minutes remaining.

The fast ball clearly wasn't intentional.

Harden led all scorers with 42 points when the Rockets and Bucks met on Wednesday, but Houston as a whole was unable to overcome the Eastern Conference juggernauts, losing 116-109.

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

He was gracious in the loss and able to laugh off his blow to the head.

"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", Lopez said. The half ended with a Middleton jumper to cut the Houston lead to 60-54. Antetokounmpo scored nine of Milwaukee's 38 points, doing so on 2-for-5 shooting from the field and 5-for-6 from the free throw line.

For starters, it put an end to a 10-game home winning streak for the resurgent Rockets, whose home form has really buoyed their play following their ugly start to this season.

But the beasts of the East proved too much on Wednesday.

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. Slowing down Harden has been very hard this season and for the Bucks it was no different, but Giannis Antetokounmpo did try out something nobody had seen before.
