Bucks take tough loss in LA

LOS ANGELES, CA (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks (41-23) could not hold on to beat the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night losing 123-122 despite another triple-double from Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Bucks didn't have an answer for Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell who scored 44 points including the game-winner with less than ten seconds left in the game. 21 of Russell's 44 points came in the fourth quarter as LA was playing without injured superstar LeBron James.

Giannis put up another monster stat line with 34 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists. That was his eighth triple-double of the season which is as many as any other player has in their entire Bucks career.

Milwaukee is 0-2 to start their west coast trip. They'll look to get back on track Sunday afternoon against the Los Angeles Clippers.
