Antetokounmpo, Bucks beat Pistons for 13th straight victory
The last time the Bucks had a longer winning streak than this was when they won 16 in a row spanning the end of the 1972-73 season and the beginning of 1973-74. They also had a 13-game run shortly after that 16-game streak ended.
Milwaukee had won its previous two games by 41 and 44 points, and the Pistons had won their previous two by 34 and 33. This one wasn't close, either. The Bucks have dominated Detroit of late.
Milwaukee won all eight matchups with the Pistons last season — four in the regular season and four in the first round of the playoffs. The Bucks also beat Detroit last month in their first meeting of 2019-20.
Andre Drummond had 23 points and 14 rebounds for Detroit.
Brown connected on a season-high six 3-pointers, and Walker had seven assists and four rebounds. Jayson Tatum added 19 points
Jimmy Butler led Miami with a season-high 37 points and had six rebounds and four assists. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra left the team in the morning, flying home to be with wife Nikki for the birth of their second son. Assistant coach Dan Craig ran the team.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Devonte Graham made 10 3-pointers and scored 33 points and Charlotte beat Golden State to spoil D'Angelo Russell's return to the court.

Russell finished with 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting in 25 minutes after missing the last nine games with a right thumb sprain.
Kyrie Irving missed his 10th straight game with a right shoulder impingement and did not make the two-game trip to stay home and rehab.
