However, instead of witnessing a tight duel, they were treated to an incredible offensive and defensive showing from the Bucks who blew out the Hawks, 125-91.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, for his part, finished with 25 points, nine rebounds, six assists and two steals in the win. It was a performance that undoubtedly impressed Chance the Rapper, who did his best to talk to the Greek Freak and show him some love.
“Thank you for that show, man. That was insane,” Chance told the Bucks superstar after waiting outside the team's press conference room, per Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.

Pretty awesome gesture from Chance, and a well-deserved praise for Giannis.
Antetokounmpo and Co. have now tied their series against the Hawks at 1-1, and they will hope to regain homecourt advantage once again by winning both or at least one game on the road in Atlanta.
The Bucks showed the Hawks the reason they should be feared with their 34-point win, and such huge victory may go a long way in the playoffs where every game matters.
