In a sight that has become all-too-familiar to Bucks' opponents, Giannis repeatedly drove to the basket, using his length and strength to draw fouls and finish at the rim.

Rookie sensation Doncic finished the game with team-high 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting.

The Slovenian star produced a selection of highlight plays - a first-quarter floater over Brook Lopez, a second-quarter step-back three-pointer and an improvised fourth-quarter finish that resulted in a three-point play - but the Mavericks could not keep pace with the Bucks and ultimately fell to a 15-point defeat.
