MILWAUKEE -- Giannis Antetokounmpos sixth career triple-double put him in elite company. Anthony Morrow Thunder Jersey .Antetokounmpo had his first triple-double of the season to lead the Milwaukee Bucks over the Orlando Magic 93-89 on Monday night.It was a good one, Antetokounmpo said. We got the win, so it feels great. It feels even better.Milwaukee snapped a three-game losing streak as Antetokounmpo finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, five steals and three blocks -- a line matched only by Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon.I think we all know he can fill up a stat sheet, but now the next thing is filling up a stat sheet in a way that leads to wins, Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said. Understanding that we ask a lot from him and expect a lot, but hes only 21 years old.Jabari Parker also had 22 points and made five 3-pointers -- he began the night with a total of 10 -- for the Bucks, who beat Orlando at home for the eighth time in nine tries.The Magic were led by Serge Ibakas 21 points, and Elfrid Payton added 18 but had five of Orlandos 24 turnovers. The team was averaging 13 turnovers per game but had 19 in the first half.Weve done a great job with that all year, Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. Were a good ball-security team, one of the best in the league. This team plays a unique defense where theyre going to trap and rotate. They play differently than most teams. And we didnt handle it well.The score was tied at 85 before Matthew Dellavedova sank a 3-pointer and Antetokounmpo added a dunk for a five-point lead with 2:38 remaining.Shortly after Antetokounmpo blocked a shot by Ibaka, Parker missed a desperate 3-point try as the shot clock was about to expire and was fouled by Ibaka. He made one free throw for a 91-87 lead with 17.9 seconds left.Parker then stole the ball from Ibaka and sailed in for another dunk and a 93-87 lead with 8.7 seconds to go.Orlando opened the game with a 16-2 run but trailed at halftime 49-44 after Parkers layup at the buzzer. The Magic led by five, however, at the end of the third quarter thanks to a 12-0 run to end the frame.Milwaukee opened the fourth by scoring 16 of the first 18 points and took its biggest lead, 85-76, on two free throws by Malcolm Brogdon with 7:52 to go. Orlando responded by scoring the next nine points to tie the score at 85 with 4:24 left.TIP-INSMagic: Orlando is 0-5 against Central Division opponents and all five games have been on the road. ... The Magic began the night 29th in the NBA in scoring with 92.5 points per game.Bucks: Michael Beasley scored 10 points in the first quarter -- he entered the game averaging 8.0 points per game. ... A Milwaukee fan sank a halfcourt shot in the fourth quarter to win $5,000.TOUGH FOURTHOrlando shot 21.7 percent (5 of 23) in the final quarter, and Evan Fournier was the only Magic player with more than two points (he had five).MINUTES SHRINKINGMilwaukees Greg Monroe played over eight minutes and finished with two points. In his teams last four games, the second-year Buck played a total of less than 19 minutes -- he did not play against Miami -- and scored eight points.TIGHT SERIESEntering the game, the series between Milwaukee and Orlando was tied, 50-50, and each team was 35-15 at home.UP NEXTMagic: Orlando begins a three-game homestand Wednesday night against Phoenix.Bucks: Milwaukee hosts Toronto on Friday night and is 1-10 in its last 11 games against the Raptors. Russell Westbrook Jersey . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Cameron Payne Jersey . Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Alex Gordon has been battling most of the season to raise his average above .200. Now he is the hottest hitter on the American Leagues hottest team.Gordon hit a grand slam, Dillon Gee pitched seven strong innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 8-1 on Thursday night.The Royals have won five straight and eight of nine to move above .500 for the first time since July 22. Royals starting pitchers have a 1.61 ERA in the five-game winning streak, allowing 23 hits and six earned runs in 33 2/3 innings, while striking out 27 and walking seven.Gordon, who was hitting .199 with 16 RBI on Aug. 9, extended his hitting streak to a season-best nine games, hiking his average to .219. Gordon has homered in three consecutive games.I was probably trying to do too much, trying to get out of a slump, which its hard not to do, Gordon said. Im just trying to stay with the basics and put together good at-bats and luckily its been happening a little bit more lately.Gee (5-6) picked up the Royals first victory from a No. 5 starter since May 31. The Royals are 9-21 is games started by the fifth starter.I felt like I was throwing everything pretty good tonight, Gee said. I had command of the off-speed stuff and the fastball command got better throughout the game. I just felt like a lot more free and easy. The curveball was good, the slider was good. It was just a good night.Gee, who is 3-6 in 10 starts, gave up a home run to Brian Dozier on his third pitch. It was Doziers 14th career leadoff homer and his 27th for the season. He has homered in five straight games against the Royals.That was the only run Gee would allow as he limited the Twins to four singles after the home run, walked one and struck out seven. Gees seven innings were a season high.He didnt throw too many heaters, Twins left fielder Robbie Grossman said. He really kept us off balance, threw hiis off-speed for strikes. Mitch McGary Jersey. That was a key for him.Twins right-hander Tyler Duffey (8-9) retired the first 10 hitters, but only one of the final seven batters he faced before being removed by manager Paul Molitor. After Cheslor Cuthberts single with one out in the third, Duffey walked three and hit a batter with Gordons third career grand slam punctuating the inning. Duffey was replaced by Michael Tonkin after 3 2/3 innings, allowing five runs.I think I tried to adjust by being better, and ultimately being worse, Duffey said. Just kind of missing arm side with a fastball, then I end up yanking a curveball and then the one that Gordon hit out wasnt necessarily a good pitch to hit. It just went right into his swing path. And then, giving up a grand slam, thats what happens when you walk a guy and hit a guy. Thats a really good lineup. I gave them some chances and they took full advantage of it.The Royals added three runs in the eighth with Kendrys Morales and Eric Hosmer both driving in a run. The other run scored on a throwing error by center fielder Eddie Rosario.Cuthbert had three of the Royals seven hits, bringing his hit total to 100, which ranks second among AL rookies.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: LHP Jason Vargas, who has not pitched this season after Tommy John surgery in July 2015, made his third rehab start Wednesday, giving up three runs and four hits, including two home runs, in 2 1/3 innings for Northwest Arkansas against Corpus Christi. He threw 42 pitches, 27 for strikes, while striking out one and walking none.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Jose Berrios yielded six runs, eight hits and a walk in two innings in his previous start, a 15-7 loss to Houston.Royals: RHP Edinson Volquez is 2-0 with a 2.95 ERA in three 2016 starts against the Twins.
