The Milwaukee Bucks got an overwhelming victory against the New Orleans Pelicans (135-110) thanks to a magnificent performance by the Greek Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The star of the franchise managed to score 50 points to extend the winged streak to eight consecutive losses, thus going through its worst moment of the season.
Antetokounmpo was 20/26 from the field and 3/4 from 13-pointers. In addition, he added 4 rebounds and 30 assists to his score in just XNUMX minutes of play.
“They might tell me, 'Dad, you're boring. We don't want to see your best moments. We've already heard a lot about you. We want to see Scooby-Doo', or whatever… I'm just going to continue to create basketball the way people have done it in the past, the way that you can go back and watch the highlights of Magic Johnson, Kevin Garnett highlights, Kobe Bryant highlights. They have created a lot of art over the years and we can go back and look at it and admire what they did,” Giannis said after the game.
