Third takeaway from win over LA Clippers — Milwaukee Bucks get a dominant performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo had been dominant in Milwaukee’s previous four games leading up to this one, and he carried that over into this one against Los Angeles.

The Greek Freak poured in a game-high 36 points and shooting 15-of-27 from the floor, including 2-of-7 from long distance. Antetokounmpo provided a sizeable amount of the Bucks’ previously mentioned scoring barrage in the paint, scoring at will throughout the entire game.

This was apparent in the four quarter, as the two-time MVP took full control of the game late by scoring 17 of Milwaukee’s final 22 points. Giannis shot a perfect 6-of-6 from the floor in that span while chipping in a few extra points to his total at the free throw line.

The two-time MVP did far more than just score the basketball, as he added 14 rebounds and five assists. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year also racked up a steal and four blocks in the game, one of which was a phenomenal block on L.A.’s Ivica Zubac in the fourth quarter.

It was another sensational performance from Antetokounmpo, and it might have raised his stock in the current MVP discussion for this season. Nevertheless, Antetokounmpo’s all around display of dominance against the Clippers was something to behold and certainly ranks among his best outings of the year.

Antetokounmpo and the Bucks will look to keep this momentum going as they host the Denver Nuggets this Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. CST on Fox Sports Wisconsin for those viewing locally.
