Stud - Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis had another very strong MVP caliber and led by example. He finished with 29 points, 21 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks and two steals while shooting 56 percent from the field.

The first half saw him assert his dominance in the game as he had a double-double after the first two quarters with 17 points and 11 rebounds. His standout highlight came within minutes of the tip-off. He drove to the basket, bullied Davis out of the way and almost knocked him over before dunking to give the Bucks a four-point lead in less than four minutes of basketball.

As mentioned, Giannis did not have a good game from the line, and we know that he is a 66 percent shooter from the line on the season. It was by far his worst free throw shooting game for the season with him only hitting less than 50 percent from the line on eight occasions this season. It isn't something to be too worried about; he just has to hit the clutch ones come playoff time.

It was still a strong Giannis performance, and he will know more than anyone that he has to hit those free throws better, but it's not of massive concern. The Bucks take on the Pelicans and Hawks in the coming days, so I would expect him to put on another dominant performance and continue into the postseason.
