Giannis Antetokounmpo snared his second triple-double of the season to lead Milwaukee to a 115-107 win over the Portland Trail Blazers while Matthew Dellavedova scored 17 points for the Bucks.

Antetokounmpo had 15 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for his seventh career double-double - second-most in franchise history - and is the only NBA player averaging at least 20 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two steals this season.

Jabari Parker added 27 points for Milwaukee, who rebounded from a one-point home loss to San Antonio on Monday to win for the fifth time in six games.

Australian Dellavedova played 23 minutes and also had four rebounds and one assist.

In other matches, LeBron James scored 25 points, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love also surpassed 20 as the Cleveland Cavaliers crushed the New York Knicks 126-94.

In Los Angeles, Klay Thompson scored 24 points to help Golden State to a 115-98 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Stephen Curry had 19 points for Golden State, and Kevin Durant, who came in averaging a team-best 27 points, was held to 16 on five-of-17 shooting.

Curry failed to make a three-pointer for just the second time this season, going 0 from eight with the Warriors seven from 30 from long range.

"You try to affect the games other ways when your shot is not falling," Curry said.

"That's kind of the test. To stay locked in and not get frustrated because I know it won't happen that often. We'd like to make every shot every night and have that free-flowing offensive rhythm. But for us, if we can defend and not turn the ball over, we're going to be in good shape most nights. Tonight was a testament to that."

The Houston Rockets dispatched the Los Angeles Lakers 134-95 while Atlanta beat Miami 103-95.

Charlotte defeated the Detroit Pistons 87-77, Brooklyn beat Denver 116-111 and Boston cruised past Orlando 117-87.

Indiana downed Phoenix 109-94 while Sacramento dispatched Dallas 120-89.
