Giannis Antetokounmpo reacts to Milwaukee’s 10-game winning streak
The Milwaukee Bucks logged another impressive victory on Friday, as they handily defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 119-110. That’s now 10 straight wins for the surging Bucks, and following the win, reigning league Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo acknowledged how fulfilling this outstanding run has been for the squad.
"It's amazing! It feels good."

Giannis was on point yet again against the Cavs, logging a game-high 33 points on 14-of-26 shooting, along with two 3-pointers, 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a couple of blocks in 32 minutes of play. The 24-year-old has been nothing short of amazing to start the new campaign, currently averaging 31.2 points (on 55.9 percent shooting), 13.6 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.5 blocks, while also knocking down 1.4 3-pointers per game. Save for the blocks, those are across the board career-high marks for the very impressive Antetokounmpo.
This victory lifts the Bucks to a 16-3 record, as they continue to sit atop of the Eastern Conference. Right now, Milwaukee are second only to the Los Angeles Lakers, who themselves are also on a 10-game winning streak, for the best record in the entire league.
The Bucks are currently on a back-to-back set, and are set to face off against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday. This will be followed by a matchup against the New York Knicks on Monday, and a battle against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. These are definitely some winnable games for Giannis and company, so it would not be surprising if they extend their current win streak. All eyes, however, will be on their highly-anticipated bout against the Los Angeles Clippers Friday next week.
