In MVP form since the start of the season, Giannis Antetokounmpo hit hard again with his Bucks this Wednesday evening. Unheard of since 1972 for the star, who continues to establish himself as one of the best in the league. We know someone who wants to win a second career title…
Everything is rolling on the side of the Bucks. The franchise got the better of the Kings on Wednesday night, with a final score of 126-113. A victory not so simple as that, especially since Sacramento (13-10) is a formidable team during this campaign. Jrue Holiday won his duel with 31 points, while Giannis Antetokounmpo was within his standards. And they are awesome…
The Greek Freak carnage continues!
In 33 minutes, he concluded his match with 35 points at 12/19 shooting, 7 assists and 6 rebounds. A colossal meeting for the Greek Freak, who even took the opportunity to achieve a feat never seen since 1972. We can say that it is impressive, especially given the current form of the Bucks (18-6 record). We will still have to count on them in the playoffs this season…
