Giannis Antetokounmpo had another impressive year with the Milwaukee Bucks, but which three games in his second MVP campaign were his greatest?

To the surprise of no one, reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo followed up his award-winning season with another career year with the Milwaukee Bucks.

No. 34 topped last season’s stats with new career-highs in points and rebounds, all while he averaged his lowest minutes per game since his rookie season in 2013-14.

Overall, Giannis’ season stats halted at 30.9 minutes, 29.7 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game throughout fifty-seven appearances. The 25-year-old also saw an impressive increase in his three-point shooting from the previous season, as he improved from 25.6 percent to 30.6 percent this season. Although that shot remains one of Antetokounmpo’s most significant flaws, the improvement is a welcome sign.

Led by Antetokounmpo’s astonishing season, the Milwaukee Bucks possessed the best record in the league for the second year in a row. With a 53-12 record before the stoppage, Milwaukee was on track to have one of their best seasons historically, and still could if the NBA does indeed resume at some point.

With his fantastic season, Antetokounmpo undoubtedly made his case to receive his second consecutive MVP award and was undoubtedly the front runner before the season got suspended. In a recent poll by MVP voters, Antetokounmpo received 60 out of a possible 70 first-place votes, the other 10 going to LeBron James.

Throughout his MVP caliber season, Antetokounmpo showcased plenty of memorable performances, but some stand above others. Out of 57 appearances, here are Giannis Antetokounmpo’s three best games of the season so far.
