It's been a disappointing start to the 2021/22 start for the LA Lakers (8-7) and once again the LA franchise struggled on Monday as an inspired DeMar DeRozan performance who was at his brilliant best again saw Chicago Bulls overcome the Angeles Lakers 121-103 at a packed Staples Center.

LA were, once again without superstar LeBron James and it was left to Talen Horton-Tucker (28 points), Russell Westbrook (25 points) and Anthony Davis (20 points) to npush the stuttering Lakers along (8-7).

Bucks fall to Hawks with Giannis speculation increasing

Giannis Antetokounmpo returned for the Bucks (6-8), registering 26 points, six assists and five rebounds on Monday but his presence was insufficient as Trae Young's season-best 42 points fuelled the Atlanta Hawks to a 120-100 win over reigning champions.

Antetokounmpo hinted that his next challenge may not be with NBA champions the Milwaukee Bucks. The two-time NBA MVP had reiterated his commitment to the Bucks in December when he signed a super-max five-year, $228million contract extension, the largest in league history. However, the 26-year-old suggested his future may be away from Milwaukee.

"One challenge was to bring a championship here and we did," Antetokounmpo told GQ. "It was very hard, but we did. Very, very hard. I just love challenges. What's the next challenge? The next challenge might not be here".
