Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has been a rising trend.

Even what was during an up and down week, Giannis Antetokounmpo stood as a pretty significant bright spot.

With so many questions revolving around his own inconsistencies to start the season, Antetokounmpo looks to finally shedding those concerns, given how much comfortable he has looked as of late.

That can best be seen by how his remarkable scoring performances and he had 34 and 38-point performances against the Pelicans and the Hornets. Along with that, he fell an assist shy of a triple-double against both Toronto and Charlotte and it’s increasingly felt as his stat stuffing has never been more needed than it has right now on the Bucks overall.

That certainly speaks to the much-needed spark Antetokounmpo laid in their loss to New Orleans as he stood as significant reason why they were able to show some overdue fight on that night.

While the same shooting concerns continue to circle around Antetokounmpo, the 26-year-old’s prolific paint penetration has helped him unlock the many walls that stand in his way on a nightly basis.

As clearly locked in Antetokounmpo looks right now, one can only hope his teammates can follow suit to help climb the team out of this current skid.
