Only five N-B-A teams still haven’t lost a game and the Milwaukee Bucks are one of them. Giannis Antetokounmpo’s triple-double led the Bucks to a 123-108 home victory over Philadelphia Wednesday. Antetokounmpo put up 32 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists to dominate the stat sheet, but Khris Middleton chipped in 25 and Brook Lopez had 21. The Bucks fell behind early but rode a 49-point second quarter to their fourth victory in as many games. Lopez says he continues to be impressed by the “Greek Freak”.
Coach Mike Budenholzer agrees, saying it’s fun to watch his all-star.
It’s no secret that Antetokounmpo is playing well, but he has actually been playing at historic levels. Giannis is actually the first player in 50 years to score at least 25 points with at least 15 rebounds in four straight games. The last person to do that? Wilt Chamberlain.
The next challenge for Milwaukee is another young squad out of Minnesota, who are led by former rookie of the year Karl-Antony Towns. The Bucks and Timberwolves will tip of inside the Target Center in Minneapolis at 7:00 PM tomorrow night.
