Antetokounmpo scores first double-double in the NBA

They came to Brooklyn to win a championship, but right now the trio of guards Paul Pierce and Jason Terry and forward Kevin Garnett, who came from Boston in a blockbuster, are just happy to end a losing streak in the NBA.

The veterans did just that Friday night, each scoring in double figures for the first time this season to help lead the Nets to a 104-93 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Barclays Center on Friday night.

However a bright spot for Milwaukee, which is on a 6-23 record so far this year, was the play of rookie swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The 19-year-old from Greece scored a team-high 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his first career double-double in his fifth start.
