Kobe Bryant pulled into 4th on the all-time scoring list with his 28 points in a 114-109 victory over the Hawks. Nick Young also made his first appearance of the season with 17 points. The Swaggy Era is back in the NBA, all rejoice.
With the Milwaukee Bucks 117-113 victory over the Knicks, the Bucks now have their first winning record in 607 days! And this was a Bucks team without Larry Sanders and with Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting early with foul trouble. The Knicks stormed back in the 4th quarter on the efforts of Iman Shumpert (21 pts) and Tim Hardaway Jr (24 pts), but the Bucks held on. Congrats Milwaukee!
