The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Denver Nuggets 107-99 at the Fiserv Forum

Basketball fans on the Fiserv Forum didn’t get the MVP-twice vs. Twice-MVP battle they were hoping for on Wednesday night.

That’s because Nuggets star Nikola Jokic got a scratch after playing in a win over the Pelicans in New Orleans on Tuesday. He missed both Denver games prior to that with a tight hamstring, and was suspended against the Bucks with the same issue.

square score: 107 bucks, 99 nuggets

Pax was the MVP of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who contributed 33 points and 14 rebounds in the 107-99 victory. Milwaukee improved to 31-17, while Denver fell to 34-15.

The Nuggets also sat out three starters: Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr., and Kentavious Caldwell Pope.

The Bucks were playing without Sixth Man of the Year candidate Bobby Portis, who will miss some time with a sprained knee.
