The Milwaukee Bucks weren’t great against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night. They allowed the Nets to shoot 56% from the field. They often stood idly by as Brooklyn connected on 12 of its 27 3-point attempts. They made just 13 of 21 free throws. They allowed one of the worst teams of the league to hang around for the entirety of the game.
But it doesn’t matter. Because Giannis was incredible. Almost everything he did was worthy of a highlight. He finished with 28 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists, four steals and two blocks. He made 12-16 FG.
This was Giannis’s fourth triple-double in his last 11 games. He’s the first Bucks player to have four triple-doubles in one season. The Bucks are 3-1 in games where he posts a triple-double. Jason Kidd said after a recent loss, I believe it was the Thunder game where Giannis put up one of his triple-doubles, that the next step for Giannis was continuing to put up the numbers he was putting up, but do it in wins. He’s doing it in wins. And it wasn’t just the numbers on Sunday night. Giannis led Milwaukee to this win. He helped ice the game with a free throw, an assist, two steals and a rebound in the last couple minutes.
The Bucks have a superstar and he has no ceiling.
